Guys

In the large update I'm doing on an 11.3 box today, zypper up has
failed twice
so far with only about 1/4 of the updates done. The errors are cpio error
where
unpacking the rpm results in zypper up aborting because it is trying to
unpack
something that should be a file, but instead finds a directory.

The error is something to the effect, error extracting .... is a
directory.
(a)bort (r)etry (i)gnore?

So far the following packages have caused the errors:

python-distribute
thunar-doc

Those are packaging bugs. It's not possible to replace directories
with symlinks/files in an update. Please file bugs against the two
packages.

Cheers,
Michael.
