You keep saying "zypper up"

Yes, I am updating a 12.3 system. My $SUBJ should have said
"updating", not "upgrading".

In that case, zypper patch pulls exclusively updates from the
official update repos only.
It is a safer option than zypper up which can pull from any of the
configured repos, and as such is more dangerous.

I sent that to fast. I meant to add that the repos "zypper patch" can
pull is only those found at:


which you can see is just the official update repos that the opensuse
support team maintains.


Yeah, I usually only play with other repos on systems I'm testing or
debugging - for plain office machines like this laptop, I stick to
vanilla openSUSE.

I appreciate your comments Greg - I've never used "zypper patch", I
think I'll be switching to that.
