    Default How do I update to Gnome 3.32?

    Hello. Yesterday I installed openSUSE Tumbleweed. I saw an article in my phone's news feed about gnome 3.32 and started searching about this version on opensuse. I found an article about that(http://www.ubuntubuzz.com/2019/03/av...x-distros.html). I added the repos, and tried to update the system. However, when I run
    Code:
    suo zypper dup
    it doesn't show any updates. I installed some packages using YaST( by selecting 3.32 on different apps). Now I have some apps that are for Gnome 3.32 and most of the others aren't. Also, in the "Details" tab in gnome control center it shows Gnome 3.30.2 instead of 3.32. Any ideas about how I could fix this? How I could update the whole system to 3.32?

    When you add a repo and want to install from there, replacing those packages you already have with those from the new repo, you have to do a switch vendor, like you do with packman:
    Code:
    zypper dup --from <new-repo>
    A simple zypper dup will not do that, the more because on Tumbleweed that is by default zypper dup --no-allow-vendor-change, and that is of course exact what you do not want in this case.

    BTW, this is no advice on it being wise or not to go for that Gnome version.

    In my daily browse of new bug reports (via the mailing list archive), I have notice some reports about Gnome 3.32. I have the impression that SUSE and openSUSE have traditionally tweaked Gnome for various reasons. And now they seem to be in the process of working out how to adapt those tweaks to 3.32. Unless your need is urgent, I would suggest waiting a few weeks for it to show up in the regular Tumbleweed repos.

    Hi
    It's still not ready, it still needs some patches to be rebased, should be too long...

    My 2 cents: Don't add experimental repos to TW at all. GNOME 3.32 will not appear in TW until all openQA tests pass. Until that GNOME 3.32 should be considered unstable on TW. The benefit of openQA testing is that TW as a whole is tested before releasing updates in a new snapshot. And, if you miss a package, and do find it in some experimental or home: repo, ask the maintainer to have it added to TW. IME most of them feel pleased to have their package in the distro.
