I am running zypper dup and are happy with the results. I have one problem
Due to a sometimes very unreliable adsl connection I have some problems.
After I have okayed the choices for the update I have to sit before the monitor
until the update is ready because regularly I get the information that a certain
program can not be retrieved.
Read through the zypper information and found nothing which would help me with
automatically retry to connect to the respective server to get the data.
Found --non-interactive update which promised to ask no questions with the
update (same as dup?) but this command just answers to the default which is with
zypper dup a for abort. If if would be r for retry I could expect to have my
update done irrespectively of the bad connection of my ISP.
Would be nice to have a third choice after receiving the amount of updates. For
the moment it is only y/n?.Example:
9 packages to upgrade.
Overall download size: 15.1 MiB. After the operation, additional 20.0 KiB will
Continue? [y/n/?] (y):
Something like NIU (non-interactive update) could be a solution. Something to
propose in OpenFate if it is not already available in zypper.
