Re: [opensuse-factory] Tumbleweed snapshot question

if "other repositories" means not the base openSUSE Tumbleweed repos, you

Unfortunately I am unsuccessful with the "zypper dup
--no-allow-vendor-change" command.

Zypper calculates 95 problems on my main PC. Zypper offers exactly 1
solution for each of the 95 problems. It suggest to change packages from
Packman to openSUSE, from KDE to KDE:Extra etc. Also Zypper suggest to
choose some self-compiled RPMs with "official" RPMs from repositories.

# zypper dup --no-allow-vendor-change

It offers 4 options: 1 (solution 1), s)kip, r)etry and c)ancel. If I
refuse only one suggestion with "skip" Zypper comes to an endless loop.
If I answered the 95 questions with at least only answer "skip", Zypper
starts again.

So if I have to say "Yes" to everything, I don't see the difference
between "zypper dup --no-allow-vendor-change" and "zypper dup".
Especially "zypper dup --no-allow-vendor-change" does not preserve my
repository preferences for me.
