    Default an advice for setting priority obs repo

    Hi everyone,

    if I wanted to install example: acetoneiso2-2.3-5.6.x86_64.rpm which is on obs in this repo: http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...SE_Tumbleweed/ or other application not present in the official repo, in order not to compromise the stability of the system (TW), which priority should I set? 99 (standard) or 100 ? in general I ask for third-party repositories.

    I thank you all

    karlmistelberger thank you for the link, it seems that has been debated ... I understand (correct me if I'm wrong because my English is not exceptional) that:

    packman -> 90
    official repo -> 99
    other (es: obs) -> 100

    usually to update TW uses zypper dup, while in cases where conflicts arise (Knurpht) can use zypper dup --allow-vendor-change.

    correct?

    Thank you

    Thank you
    I would be very carefull using this when having extra repos. Qualifying it with a --repo or --from may be a good idea.

    zypper dup displays the message:

    "The following n packages are going to change vendor:
    ..."

    You may check packages displayed and commit only if appropriate.

    Vendor change for zypper dup is disabled in Leap 15.0 and Tumbleweed.
    Code:
    linux64:~ # grep -i allowvendor /etc/zypp/zypp.conf 
    # solver.allowVendorChange = false
    solver.dupAllowVendorChange = false
