Yesterday, there was a need to reinstall Slowroll on one of the external SSD’s, as zypper dup wanted to make changes that I thought shouldn’t be occurring. Specifically, it wanted to downgrade the architecture of some of the packages from x86_64 to i686 by downloading and installing them from the Packman repository instead of Slowroll’s. It is experimental and I’m not sure what transpired, for it to want to upgrade (?) like that, but the problem went away after a reinstall.
On the Slowroll Wiki page, it currently includes:
…but leave the network disabled (so it does not pull in newer Tumbleweed packages from online repos).
I used the same Tumbleweed image to reinstall, but this time, did not add/enable the Tumbleweed repositories during the installation. The Slowroll repositories were added after the first boot, per the directions shown on the Wiki page.
I would like to suggest that the above wording on the Wiki page, be replaced, to state ‘but not enable the Tumbleweed repositories during the installation’. There is no actual option I can see during the installation to leave the network disabled.
