On Jan 5, 2009, the openSUSE Updater started to display the following
desc=mysql security update
I do not have that library installed. When I choose to apply the
update, I am prompted for the root password, and then nothing happens.
After a while, update manager lists the same update again.
The same happens when I install the package (e.g. version,
5.0.51a-27.2, using yast). No update is applied and update manager
continues to list the update.
I have a MySQL-client/server/shared-community-5.0.67-0.sles10
installation, may this cause the problem?
I’m not sure why this happens but it hasn’t caused me any problems. I
use Online Update rather than the Updater and it sometimes lists updates
for programs I don’t have installed but these are not marked to be
installed; so when I select Accept, it only installs the ones for
programs I have installed and ignores the ones I don’t have installed.
