patch: gstreamer-0_10-plugin-hal-4496.noarch conflicts

OK so now VLC is back again in Packman repos, but … now I’ve got this issue:

#### YaST2 conflicts list - generated 2011-05-13 07:58:10 ####

patch:gstreamer-0_10-plugin-hal-4496.noarch conflicts with gstreamer-0_10-plugins-good-lang.noarch < 0.10.28-1.2.1 provided by

Of course (as always) I had “switched system packages to the version in packman repository” and surely this is the origin of the issue.

So the question is:
is it safe to apply this patch through “vendor change”, but immediately after redo “switch system packages to packman”?

TNX in advance.

Just ignore the patch and keep the packman version

Good to know: thanks.
But … how to stop yast prompting to apply the patch all the time?
(that’s why I said “…immediately after redo switch system packages to packman”).

Maybe packman will fix this in a few days through a different version numbering schema?

Well I don’t use the updater applet, I have it set to Never.

If, as it sounds you have, you have switched to packman already, as I have.
Simply use:

zypper up

It will install updates and patches, but not patches that break your switch rule.

Just try:

zypper lu

It should show no updates

Yes, it’s as you say.
