Confused with some repositories

Howdy,

Im trying to have a clean repo list in my openSUSE 12.2 but somehow I can’t determine wich repos are^ necessary for weekly updates.

It is ok if I remove the PK_TMP_DIR repo?

And the repos debug, it is ok if i disable them?

Best regards,

In any case you should not have anything on your 12.2 installation there that is called 12.1!

The debug ones are allready disabled. Leave them like that.

What is the SuSE one???

And I guess you added the PK_TMP_dir yourself, thus you should know what it is and if you need it.

To give us (and yourself, the complete listing you should also add the URLs that are used for e.g. that SuSE one.

zypper lr-d

Hi,

ist is OK, to disable the debug repos, if you do not want to debug anything or produce better crash reports, if something crashes :slight_smile:
To your other question:
It would help, if you could include the URI in the repo list (zypper lr -u). The names do not (always) tell, which repo is behind them.

rergards,
Hendrik

You should post

zypper lr -d

From what I can see, you’ll run in to trouble anyway, because you added the VLC repo

if you don’t like surprises read and follow the paragraph beginning with
“IMPORTANT” in this post:
http://tinyurl.com/33qc9vu

and then use either YaST Online Updater or “zypper patch” to do your
weekly updates…and, never use packagekit or apper for anything other
than a signal to run the others…

Then its ok if I manually update the debug repos (: it is a way to reduce check time when update all repos.

I really don’t have any idea about the PK_TMP_DIR I haven’t added this dir:///var/tmp/TmpDir.uAKLpP as a repo* (but im pretty much sure that this is kaffeine’s works someway, i’ve had some troubles reproducing .MP4 files and kaffeine wanted to add a repo but didn’t work.

I’ve followed this page http://forums.opensuse.org/content/127-multimedia-restricted-formats-installation-guide-12-2.html for multimedia purpose, so many codecs and libs were from this source.

They are already disabled. You can also disable updates to them. Or remove them altogether.

The PK_TMP_DIR repo is normally a side effect of using one click. Remove it. Or find out what
it is.

Do you have any doubts about that?
Let me ask, what distro have you installed, 12.1 or 12.2? I think you said 12.2.
Then should you remove the repo #7 & #3 or not?

This is a quiz, so I will not give you the answer :-p

Because it does. :slight_smile:

Are you sure you followed the multimedia guide?

Remove:

> 2 | PK_TMP_DIR | PK_TMP_DIR | Si | Si | dir:///var/tmp/TmpDir.uAKLpP
> 3 | SuSE | SuSE | Si | Si | Index of /pub/vlc/SuSE/12.1/

> 7 | openSUSE:12.1 | openSUSE:12.1 | Si | Si | http://download.opensuse.org/distrib…12.1/repo/oss/

Do this: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/10573557/Switcher%20Pics/11.4_packman_switch.png

Then to update on a weekly basis do:

su -
zypper up

I know I have openSUSE 12.2 but I thought that sometimes when there is no updated repo you could use a previous repo, but i guess doesn’t work like that (:

Now i like the way my table looks, I’ve cleared lots of doubts, thanks to all of you.

Best regards

JM

Never :slight_smile:

It can be done for testing, or emergencies, but it is a configuration you can not trust.
