Ah, more *constrictive* critism :^(

It's a thankless job I know but somebody has to do it.....

Look at this whole thing from the user's perspective.

A user is running opensuse 11.4 and he has both TB and FF versions 8.x running which were installed by 11.4's updating schemes - either Yast or zypper.

He then installs the new all-singing, all-dancing, you-beaut *"unleashed"* opensuse 12.1 but......there is a regression in this very latest *"unleashed"* release in that it only has outdated version of both TB and FF.

Religiously running zypper refresh/patch/up each morning with the correct OBS repo (Mozilla) selected does not update TB and FF to what he had in 11.4. He then reads a post stating that both FF and TB v8 for 12.1 are "coming real soon now" and when nothing happens during the daily zypper exercise he asked the question. He gets an answer. But still nothing happens when he runs zypper refresh/patch/up. Then the idea comes to mind that perhaps doing a zypper dup --from - which is something he never had to do when using 11.4 - may do the trick and, it so happens, it does do the trick and he now gets v8 of TB and FF. He then makes the comment which is appropriate and relevant to the situation.


Diapers and politicians should be changed often; both for the same reason.
