note moderators: maybe the title have to be changed, I don’t know if I writed right. thank you
I installed opensuse 13.1 some days ago, and I’m doing some experiments just to learn a lit of bit more about the system.
the thing is that I want to update all the packages changing the vendor, I mean I want new packages to come from packman repository if available
I changed the repositories’s priority with yast, I set packman with an 80 and the rest of repositories with a 90 so that packman repository would have more priority.
then as found in here and here I modified the file
and writed the next line at the end of the file
solver.allowVendorChange = true
I refreshed the repositories and loged out
when I loged in back, I ran
OK, now what I expected to happen was that new packages had come from the packman repository if available. but I got the next output instead
Loading repository data... Reading installed packages...

I checked out some of the packages (like gstreamer and typelib-1_0-GstVideo-1_0 xmms2) in the output, and obviously the vendor did not change. I see there is a packman repository version in the ones I checked out but they are not installed, instead the version installed continues being the one on the official repositories
so guys, what did I do wrong??
thanks in advance
