Yast Graphic Display: Repository field is Blank

I was trying to figure out and “fix” a situation, where Yast Graphical display shows nothing in the Repository field when I click the Versions tab and look at the line for the version that is installed - the last line in this case.

There are several packages like this, but I’ve been concentrating on one specific example. For example, libgnomecups, on the Versions tab shows 7 lines. The last line is installed, 0.2.3-50.2, but the Repository field is blank.

I’ve looked at “rpm -qi libgnomecups-0.2.3-50.2”. I’ve queried /var/cache/zypp/zypp.db repositories and resolvable tables, but nothing is jumping out that I may put the pieces together.

The rpm query shows:
Name: libgnomecups
Version: 0.2.3
Release 50.2
Install Date: 12/12/2008
Group: System/GUI/Gnome

Vendor: openSUSE Build Service
Build Host: build14

I’d like to either determine the Repository Name so it displays in Yast, or find a different Repository and reinstall.

Any suggestions?

Thank you.

There is one more line I forgot to add to the rpm output:

Distribution: GNOME:STABLE /openSUSE_10.3


this means it is no longer in any repo
Is it coloured Red?

Yes. It is colored red. Which I assume is not as good as a white or blue background. :wink: I thought I’d see if I could “address” the red.

I installed webmin via RPM, outside of Yast/zypper and the Repository field is blank. That makes sense. But gnome or libgnomecups, was installed via Yast, so I’m a little less certain how or when it occurred. If I can’t “fix” it, I just want to have an understanding for future reference.

Thank you in advance.

I shouldn’t worry too much about it. You could probably delete the package without issue. But just leave it will be fine. It’s not really an issue.
