Here is another "odd" one. Updating 42.3 yesterday, only updates were:
The following 15 packages are going to be upgraded: libreoffice libreoffice-base libreoffice-base-drivers-mysql libreoffice-branding-upstream libreoffice-calc libreoffice-calc-extensions libreoffice-draw libreoffice-filters-optional libreoffice-icon-themes libreoffice-impress libreoffice-l10n-en libreoffice-mailmerge libreoffice-math libreoffice-pyuno libreoffice-writer
(why the hell LO is split into 15 packages is another issue....)
Nonetheless, when zypper completed the update it indicated the normal:
There are some running programs that might use files deleted by recent upgrade. You may wish to check and restart some of them. Run 'zypper ps -s' to list these programs.
So I checked:
$ sudo zypper ps -s The following running processes use deleted files:
PID | PPID | UID | User | Command | Service -----+------+-----+------+-----------+-------- 2384 | 1279 | 0 | root | kdm | kdm3 2385 | 2384 | 0 | root | kdm_greet | kdm3
You may wish to restart these processes. See 'man zypper' for information about the meaning of values in the above table.
Huh?? Why does upgrading LO trigger a notice to restart kdm_greet? It just seemed strange and unrelated.
