I’m thinking of switching to Tumbleweed and have one question. Does it upgrade Kde (and other desktops) too? For example If it (Kde) was to go from 5 to 6 someday would I automatically get that or would I manually have to upgrade it myself somehow?
I see this quite frequently, but not sure if I understand why tho? Dup is ignoring vendor/repo choice and pulls recommends as well. Could you explain/point me to a direction why dup is recommended on TW?
Yep. First, --no-allow-vendor-change is default on TW, since last summer. Second, dup is needed due to how TW updates: it’s released over and over again, so you don’t update just some packages, but you move to the next released snapshot. Zypper up will ignore downgrades ( which do happen once in a while ) or replacement of one package by another. This breaks things ( as we’ve seen in numerous posts in these forums and on the MLs. So, dup is not ignoring vendor changes made by the admin of a system. One can also use the --no-recommends option or make that the default in zypper.conf.
