    Do you want to keep the repo "games"? (Y/n)

    My question is: Should I answer y or n? Because based on my endeavorOS experience if I removed the repo it would be orphaned and wouldn't get updates resulting in partial upgrades and I know from endeavorOS that partial upgrade = bad.

    Default AW: New to OpenSUSE Tumbleweed, I have a question about repos.

    If you install any package from an Repo and do not enable the Repo you will not get any Updates for the package.

    But:
    Do not enable much Repos and do not use /home Repos, only when you know, who is the owner and how often that /home repo will be updated....
    This means also my Repo......

    Better is to ask.

    So this is a question for me:
    Repository 'home:Hoog' is up to date.

    Default Re: New to OpenSUSE Tumbleweed, I have a question about repos.

    When I install a package outside the main repo like the home repo
    I only download it to my tumbleweed directory repository
    and install it using yast2. If their are dependencies I list it
    and comeback to where I got the package and doownload it
    and include it to my directory repo.

    I only check the package once in a while for an update
    and just always lock the installed package.
    People who do not break things first will never learn to create anything

    Answer "Yes" to get updates. Answer "No" to just install program without automatic updates.
    Opi is for developers mainly. Use zypper/YaST for ordinary tasks.
