Can we have more nformation about installs that replaces everything?

Currently a

sudo zypper dup

is installing 576 out of 3776 packages

Which is going to have to run overnight, as on my laptop CPU

model name : Intel(R) Core™ i5-5200U CPU @ 2.20GHz

2 cores plus hyperthreading - and will run at 2.70GHz if you set

/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor to performance for each cpu

But if it completes in 12 hours I’ll be surprised…

All I really want is some blurb that tells me (or a link to a web page that tells me)

This is replacing every package on your system because:

I’m sure all the TW devs know why this upgrade is happening, so it shouldn’t be hard to let the whole world know as well?

Or is this common knowledge, and I’ve missed it?

In which case apologies

Full rebuild of Tumblweed due to gcc 10 -> 11

Announced on the factory mailing list a few days ago, so, yes common knowledge :slight_smile:

I’ll just add my agreement with tannington.

There’s a weekly summary posted on the factory mailing list, and it has mentioned this for the last two weeks.

I read the factory mailing list at the online archive.

It isn’t ideal that new users have to figure out they should join the mailing lists to get the really important news. Perhaps it should be a mandatory part of the installation process, or heavily promoted in the FAQ’s.

One would expect really important stuff should be announced somewhere like:

In the world of push notifications it’s quite primitive to have lurk on an emailing list and somehow spot the important stuff amongst all the chaff.

I believe the UsrMerge is also in this update? If it is, that’s two big changes in one hit. Have you all made it through the UsrMerge OK?

Every Tumbleweed snapshot is posted here…!?p=3035292#post3035292

I’ll see about adding the Tumbleweed - Review of the week to announcements.

There is an expectation that Tumbleweed users do follow the Factory Mailing list, you can feed it via RSS as well…

For me zero issues with the usr merge, however there is an issue with some of the kernel headers, from memory there was an issue awhile back with that. It will affect the likes of nvidia, virtualbox etc users…

In another post somewhere in the forum Malcolm provided the following for the RSS feed:

Most days there are not a lot of items so it’s not a nuisance.

Yes, that seems like a good idea.

Thanks for all the replies

I shall investigate the factory mailing list later

… and set off this zypper dup for the 3rd time, I think I’m about 1000 packages in out of the 3776 it’s going to replace
