You are right about the protected stuff. Occasionally I have to "
unprotect " ( choose the update /lightning bolt, if that is what the
icon is supposed to be ) When a new "problem" appears and a patch shows
up... w/o changing the icon from the padlock to lightning bolt nada
happens. Gets me every now and then when I forget that Yast has marked
something as protected when I install an rpm that is newer than the
approved version.. ( Synaptic upgrades especially )

Life gets crazy, sometimes , don't it ?

It's " limin' time" kiddies. Time to hit the hammocks .. have those
tall drinks on ice by the Palms ... listen to the splashin' of the
waves on the shore. Reggae music on the box. And always remember to
call for "Boat Drinks" next !
