Ok, I'm going to have a number of questions about packaging stuff and

this is the correct list for it, if not, please point me in the correct

Anyway, I have openSUSE:Tumbleweed set up and are trying to figure out
both the workflow and how users are going to handle it.

I have it populated with only 3 packages at the moment, and it's
building against 11.3.

I added the repo to zypper, but when trying to do an update on a package
that I know is newer, I get the following error from zypper:
       There is an update candidate for 'git', but it is from a
       different vendor. Use 'zypper install git-' to
       install this candidate.

Now I don't really want to have to have every user do this by hand for
each package that gets added to tumbleweed, so how do I get this to be
automatically overridden due to the fact that the 'git' package really
is newer, and it should be installed.

Note, when running 'zypper dup' it says that there is nothing to do, I
only get the above message when explicitly asking that git be installed,
eventhough git is installed.

Anything I can do to the repo to keep this from happening?

Are trying from a 32-bit or 64-bit machine?

I have a 64-bit machine and you don't seem to have a 64-bit package
available. So changing architectures is not automatic.



or am I looking in the wrong place?
