Sorry about the typo. The time should read, "02:16:53 EST"
File a bug against this repository?
File a bug against a repository called 'openSUSE Build Service'? Isn't this a free-for-all build service under the control of Novell? So what am I supposed to file bug about, and aginst whom? :-)

IMHO you should mail the administrators of the project in the
build servic. See below how to find out which project the package
belongs to.

I guess its one of the GNOME ones, right?
I have no idea, sorry Marcus. I just boot the OS and let zyppo and smart do their designed jobs.

'rpm -qi python-gtk' should tell you which project the package came
from in the last line.

But your question has a rather unpleasant connotation: "I guess its one of the GNOME ones, right?"

I think you're reading too much into Marcus' reply.

Maybe yes, maybe no.

Having something connected with Gnome being able to stuff-up a system which doesn't have Gnome installed is not something to be ignored.

The only "error" I made was to have selected the "openSUSE BuildService - GNOME: Community" as a Community Repository in YaST2 - which is what caused the problem because this repository upgraded the openSUSE python-gtk v2.10.6-2.5@i586 to v2.12.0-22.1.i586.rpm dated 17 March. (I re-installed the original python-gtk from openSUSE and everything is now back to normal (ie, smart is working)).

smart does not want to upgrade python-gtk to anything - it is quite happy with the version which was originally installed from openSUSE site. However, add to the Community Repositories the one GNOME one I mention above and things go haywire.

I can understand the attractiveness of having a BuildService for SuSE users to access but, at the same time, isn't it also an open door for unscrupulous people to do deliberate damage to openSUSE?


If you really want to know, you won't ask me.
