Have I enabled too many repos?

Sorry for newbie question but I just about have everything else up & running ok including ALL codecs etc. but I need to ask why I got so many apps that I didn’t request, installed when I first enabled what I thought are the main essential repos & did the 1st main update after install. I got stuff like open office extras, kopete, Marble, GIMP (which I didn’t want) and quite a few other programs that I have had to go through uninstalling one by one. Whats the difference between the “Main OSS & Main Non OSS” and the “openSUSE-Oss & openSUSE-Non-Oss” ?? are they somehow duplicates? and have I made a typical newbie to openSUSE error of enabling too many repos (re the libdvdcss, yes I do want to occasionally rip dvds with handbrake or whatever, so need the decryption).

My final question is about “apper” it came up right after fresh install but didn’t go and get the updates even after I authenticated, so I had to open up YaST which is when I got quite a lot of unexpected apps. So does apper work properly for people or should i just stick to YaST/Zypper for updates?

I have the following repos enabled

Main Update Repository
Main Repository (OSS)
Main Repository (NON-OSS)
****[size=3]openSUSE BuildService - KDE:Extra[/size]


It looks to me like these are duplicates of each other.
Check the url that each of them point at.

Please allways post computer text between CODE tags: http://forums.opensuse.org/english/information-new-users/advanced-how-faq-read-only/451526-posting-code-tags-guide.html
And include the prompt, the command and the output including the next prompt. Thus we can see where yoou were, what you did and what you got.

In this case you should show:

zypper lr -d

They are the same
They may have been added by you running a Oneclclick for multimedia

I didn’t do the OneClick, I did however do the following for getting codecs & restricted formats

zypper in libdvdcss2 vlc libxine1-codecs k3b-codecs ffmpeg lame 
gstreamer-0_10-ffmpeg gstreamer-0_10-plugins-bad  gstreamer-0_10-plugins-ugly
gstreamer-0_10-plugins-ugly-orig-addon  w32codec-all MPlayer smplayer
gstreamer-0_10-plugins-good libxine1  libdvdplay0 libdvdread4 libdvdnav4 xine-ui
libmad0 ffmpeg sox  libxvidcore4 xvidcore libavcodec52 libavdevice52 libvlccore4
libvlc5 lsb  pullin-flash-player flash-player gstreamer-0_10-ffmpeg 
gstreamer-0_10-fluendo-mp3 gstreamer-0_10-fluendo-mpegdemux 
gstreamer-0_10-fluendo-mpegmux gstreamer-0_10-plugins-base 
gstreamer-0_10-plugins-good-extra k3b vlc-aout-pulse libquicktime0 
gstreamer-0_10-plugins-bad-orig-addon gecko-mediaplayer

I can easily disable the duplicate repos, no problem but what I’m really wondering about here is what pulled in apps such as Gimp, Marble and some other stuff which I did not request and I’m fairly sure apps like these would have been too large for a basic live CD install (understandable if dvd but not CD). In fact I didn’t actually request VLC itself but I am guessing that by pulling in the above codecs & dependencies, VLC would have been pulled in, I can also only guess that by doing the 1st main update after fresh install + after enabling the repos, suse pulled in a selection of apps it might normally include in a DVD install, or whatever?

Main Update Repository
Main Repository (OSS)
Main Repository (NON-OSS)
[size=3]openSUSE BuildService - KDE:Extra[/size]

Is fine

The code you used for the kde multimedia includes vlc in there
Gimp is part of the default install

thanks for your help

Yes, you did. It is in the “zypper in” list you posted, in the first line.

Yes indeed you’re correct, I realised my mistake

Mine came like that when I did a clean install of 12.2

zypper lr -d

No, absolutely not. No way.

Of course I added the KDE, QT, Pacman, and Kernel but the non-oss and oss came doubled like that. I didn’t add them.

I added the KDE, QT, Pacman, and Kernel
How exactly? .

sudo zypper ar ‘repo here’

I thought the double non-oss and oss were two different repositories after seeing different links with “zypper lr -d” so I didn’t pay much attention to it until I stumbled upon this thread.
