I've got this tendency to think that features like opensuse updater are
very convenient and can help the new (and old) users in their everyday
updates process, but it looks to me so far that this function does
exactly the opposit for it often times has problems... (and users are
expecting it too work fluently, may be xrongly ? ) .
Too bad , which i do not understand.
I often have problems, which origin i'm not quite sure of and can be of
various kinds :
the open suse updater in itself,
wrongly packaged rpms
problems with repositories
and so on ...
Well, this might be a complicated subject to detect, analyse and solve
for it continues. In my opinion a lack in this distro (even though
people often skip this applet and use yast or zypper and the like all
users are not able to do so, or do not wish to, i very often read
questions asking for help about this applet including my owns , i'm
thinking of problems with updating firefox which is a very commonly
package and thus problem met, and recently opensuse education repo being
a inconvenient ).
Please let me know if i'm completely wrong or misunderstood something,
or where to post in case i'm not using the right list (?)
Is there a process already on to list and solve these problems ?
I'm sure this could market positively for openSUSE ;) i'm so sorry i
can't provide you a patch or the like as i'm not technically skilled
i recently posted a bug at novell's bugzilla on this osu applet
(relating updates if my memory is still faithful) but no news so far,
and also i can't connect to my account despite i have there 2 accounts
and received ids from novell's site.
Thanks for any help ;)
