Hi everybody,

today I noticed the following with my 11.2 installations:

I have cron jobs with:

zypper --quiet up -y -t patch --skip-interactive

All updates except the latest kernel package were applied.
That's OK, but there is no information in the e-mail cron
sends regarding the suppressed kernel update.

Normally the --quiet option is needed for me to keep the mail readable,
but when I test "zypper up" without --quiet I get the following mail:

#################################################
Retrieving repository 'Packman Repository' metadata [.done]
Building repository 'Packman Repository' cache [....done]
Loading repository data...
Reading installed packages...
Warning: 'kernel-3175' is interactive, skipping.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Resolving package dependencies...

Nothing to do.
#################################################

Here we habe the warning I was waiting for.

Is this what the programmer wanted to implement?
Do I really have to omit the --quiet option?
Something else I am missing?

BTW: the "default" cron script /etc/cron.d/yast2-online-update
(which points to /usr/lib/YaST2/bin/online_update) has the same behaviour.

Joe
