I have been running Leap 15 for just under two months now, without issues. My system runs 24/7 and does the regular security updates when needed.
Yesterday, I was using it without any issues. Today, however, when I started to use my machine again, I noticed my sound had stopped working, so i rebooted it, only to find the boot screen now shows the infinity gif logo and not the usual leap 15 logo.
Being very annoyed, I confirmed this by going to “About System”, see below. Operating System: openSUSE Tumbleweed 20181213
KDE Plasma Version: 5.14.4
Qt Version: 5.11.2
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.52.0
Kernel Version: 4.19.7-1-default
OS Type: 64-bit
Processors: 4 × Intel® Core™ i5-4590 CPU @ 3.30GHz
Memory: 15.6 GiB of RAM
I typically reboot my system once in a while or every few weeks or unless the system requires one.
My concern is how my system upgraded itself to tumbleweed without my express consent?
Or What could I have done to unknowingly trigger this upgrade, as I usually only install security updates through the KDE software updates widget?
Or is this a bug ?
I have been using Manjaro / Arch for the last two years, and hence specifically did not want a rolling release for stability reasons.
Thus my last question is then how to move safely back to Leap ?
As system management involves no magic whatsoever, I would assume you did something yourself.
You probably added Tumbleweed repositories to your enabled repostory list somehow. To check this, please post
zypper lr -d
BTW, I see you are new here: Welcome!
And allow me please to point you to our CODE tags information:
There is an important, but not easy to find feature on the forums.
Please CODE tags around copied/pasted computer text in a post. It is the # button in the tool bar of the post editor. When applicable copy/paste complete, that is including the prompt, the command, the output and the next prompt.
Thanks for the fast response.
Yes, I am a newbie to this forum.
Thanks for the advice.
I am very much new to Opensuse, but not linux, so I am well aware that I might have caused this. I have steered clear on the console and performed most of my operations through Yast. I dont mind this happening, as long as I know how I did it, so I can prevent this in future.
I have recently installed , apache2, php7, mariadb and virtualbox and docker, so I dont know if this could have caused it.
I have been slowing setting up my machine as a development workstation, so majority of the applications are development Apps, like Atom, docker, mqttbox, kicad, nextcloud, freecad, mysql, virtualbox, to name a few. I remember having issues installing netbeans on opensuse, and might have followed some forum posts to use the tumbleweed repos, so this might be it, but eventually went with the standalone netbeans 9.0.
No it it installs from the repo you select. Most packages are in all repos and there is a choice at the software window… One clicks tend to leave the repo installed from active which can cause other package to be pulled from that repo. Best to set it not active if you must pull from a foreign repo . Also in Leap only zypper up should be used, never zypper dup unless you are changing distributions.
I assume the path is clear now. You added TW repos, maybe doing one-click installs. AFAIK the one-click install gives you the change to stay contributed to the repo or not… In any case, you should not have done any paeckage installation intended for another version of openSUSE, one-click or not. Doing this might be “unsolicited” but in any case done by yourself.
How to repair is already mentioned several times above.
Well, its seems my system is semi broken, as Yast cant open the software management nor software repository Gui’s.
For fear of completely breaking my system, I disabled the TW repo through the console, instead of removing it, based on this link: http://opensuse-guide.org/repositories.php, and did the zypper dup command. Below is the output.
I am quite surprised and impressed, that the system is still semi working, in this state and would not have noticed it, if I did not reboot.
Its currently performing the full downgrade to Leap and will take time to process. I assume this is all I can do for now.
I have found opensuse a little daunting coming an arch based OS, so I know it will take time to learn to do things the opensuse way.
Thanks to everyone for shedding light on this problem and all the advice.
