    Default Adding A Tumbleweed repo to Leap 15 YaST

    Can I add a Tumbleweed repository to Leap 15 with out messing up to Leap OS(kernel, etc)?
    http://download.opensuse.org/tumbleweed/repo/oss/

    I hope to be able to install the Banshee player from there.
    i assume I will use it for the banshee player, then ‘set’ it to a no auto refresh once done with it.

    Toshiba laptops Leap15.1 & Win10, HP AiO Win10.
    I can now print with openSuSe Leap! Can Scan now, could be better!!
    I can backup my iPod and iPad with Windows, can't with Linux.(Will get there someday!)

    Hi Bill,

    Don't. Please don't. Any zypper up will move your system from Leap 15.0 to some mix of Leap and TW and definitely break things, most likely leaving you with a black screen, a non-responsive desktop etc.

    OK! That is what I was asking. I don’t want to mess up my Leap, So I won’t even attempt to do it.
    thanks!

    There is no banshee player inside that Repo.

    banshee is out since 2014.

    Last build in my Repo is for Leap 42.3.

    This will really corrupt you leap install. you could try downloading the
    package to a local dir and install from there.

    Hey Bill, what took your interest with Banshee? Maybe we can suggest some recommended alternatives for you.
    openSUSE Leap 15.1; KDE Plasma 5

    Don't add that tumbleweed repo just for the sake of installing one app.
    There's a change it is going to pull something not recommended for leap
    that can lead to a disaster. Unless you are very careful and know what
    you are doing please don't.

    Well I do it, that's where I get the latest kernel but I know it will not pull
    something that can break my system. After that I emmdiately turn the repo off
    People who do not break things first will never learn to create anything

    Only for a newer kernel you should add and enable the kernel:stable Repo:
