it zypper?) and when I went to apply them I suddenly (as in yesterday or

Then I decided to install smart as the system updater (I have it
installed on my "test" system" with the identical (naturally) channels
(repositories) I have for zypper/zypp/whatever).

Not only did smart have any problems with dependencies associated with
compiz-kde-4* (above) it installed about a dozen updates - even though
zypper/zypp was showing no updates to be done only a minute or so before
I ran smart.

Results like this don't make for trust about whether oS is being
correctly updated. Personally I cannot help accept smart as the more
reliable app to update oS.
