Re: [opensuse-factory] TW 20170529 major breakage in Thunderbird
Thanks. Sadly, zypper only sees the latest version of thunderbird: 52.1.1-1.2.

sudo zypper install --oldpackage MozillaThunderbird-52.1.1-1.1
Loading repository data...
Reading installed packages...
Package 'MozillaThunderbird-52.1.1-1.1' not found.

This is feeling really user-hostile. :(

I filed - Always retain version n-1 in repo cache to facilitate package rollbacks

Let me also take the opportunity ask: how do you easily roll back a package version with zypper? I read through the man page and scoured the web but wasn't able to come up with anything that worked.

% zypper se -s pkg

will give you the list of versions that zypper knows about (has a cached version of / can see in your repos). You can then forcefully install (downgrade) pkg to pkg-1.2.3 with:

% zypper in --oldpackage pkg-1.2.3

You should get a warning about a downgrade. I'm not actually sure if this will downgrade libraries (if necessary) but I would hope it does (since zypper would see it as a reinstall with different Requires).
