Maybe I explained badly.
I understand these operations, I meant to say... when open "yast" not
from terminal but graphical, if possible to have inside the graphical
box of "factory-update" package, the possibility to check directly from
it the change on zypp.conf in a future release of openSUSE or is a
stupid idea?

It is currently not possible, sounds like a feature request to make zypper
configuration available in yast. You can add such requests on

Ok, no problem...
Forget what I said.
You can close this thread.

This is indeed the type of question that belongs on opensuse@xxxxxxxxxxxx,
not our devel list ;-)

Thank you for very fast reply.

I apologize, one question.
I've understand and i will changing my Zypp.conf file...
But is possible, on box of this graphic utility (factory-update), to
have the possibility to change this, with a check button so can
in automatic the file zypp.cof?
I know that who use Linux system from much time, this is a stupid
question, but for who is the first time in the Linux world, it would
simplify life.

Excuse me for my english is no good.

Please don't hijack threads.

I do not believe this to be possible. However, Maurizio, if you hit
and type "kdesu kwrite /etc/zypp/zypp.conf" followed by your root
password you'll have a graphical editor in which you can change this

On a gnome desktop I am unaware of an easy way to have a root gedit
but I'm sure it is possible somehow.

That's bad advice, there is no need to run a an editor with root
privileges. Use "SUDO_EDITOR=/path/to/my/editor sudoedit
/etc/zypp/zypp.conf" from a terminal, it does the right thing, ie. it
makes a copy of the file letting you edit it as a user and replaces
the original file with the edited copy once you're finished.
