In YaST2's List of Online Repositories both GNOME:Community and
GNOME:STABLE are shown. Which one is to be selected for use - or should
both be selected?

Previously I always did use them both. Now I think there is no need for
using those repositories, especially if one is a KDE user only.

Another point about this is that I am using KDE so why should I have to
go messing around with GNOME-related repositories?

AFAIK some openSUSE global config files seem to be gnome-related. So if
there is a flow there a gnome libs update might be considered useful.

I am in the process
of converting a friend of mine from XP to openSUSE and using KDE- trying
to explain to him why he needs to select GNOME-related repositories is
going to be very tricky business....

I'm in the same position using KDE only. So if I need to upgrade/install
just a proggy which is available in GNOME:Community or GNOME:STABLE then
I do download the matching src.rpm and rebuild it with the oss GTK libs.
I'm doing so for e.g. gimp-2.4.

There are also some conflicting issues between those repositories and
packman. For that matter KDE repositories seem to be little bit easier
to handle.

All the best, Peter J. P-N.
