ecsos, found at:

I have put this site on the repositories and gave it the lowest number of all
Since two days I ran into following problem. Zypper dup wants to replace the
4,0.1 with the 3.4.2.

eventual updates.

Hard to say w/o seeing the priorities set for your repos. Perhaps some
python requirement ???

Solved it for the moment by locking the lang part of Gramps but wonder why
newer software should find itself replaced by the lower numbered version.

Solve it better by locking gramps from the provider of 3.4.2. Then zypper
will only update from other providers of which at present there is only
