Actually I had to install some packages from other sources. Some I couldn’t even find in the OBS - like the latest Synology Drive client for example…
(Works like a charm though I had to use alien to convert from a deb format…)
Now using your command with “rpm -qa” it turns out you are right:
After I used Yast to vendor change all dubious repository sources to use standard system packages (downgrading a few in the process, which doesn’t seem to matter at all!) all RPMs are now “x86_64” or “noarch”.
The “rpm -qa” doesn’t show any “i568” packages anymore!
I’ll add the rpm search command to my arsenal for checking regularly to make sure that I won’t mess up anymore in the future.
And I’ll use more caution…
So thanks a lot for your help!
p.s.: Is it customary to mark theredas in this forum here as “solved”?
And if so, how?
Fine it helped you to check that this aspect of your system is OK now. I doubt it is needed to check on a regular base. I guess nobody else does this. But maybe you are a bit adventurous in installing?
You said that it helped, thus this is solved. No need for extra actions.
p.s.: I switched from an Arch system for reliability and standardized maintenance (Arch is all over the place!) so I am not yet used to the proper use of the intended or recommended use of standard SUSE, OBS and alternative sources. But I am learning… thx
