my bad, this is wrong: zypper dup

Ahh, sounds a lot better :-) . I'll try it later.

(But the "up" still worries me: I have forgotten what zypper does with varying version numbers and with v1.9.99 already installed I wonder what it will do with its v1.1.13? I'll find out later :-) .)

Aahh, Patrick, oi tink you be in need of a rest, oi does :-) .

zypper up --from <repo> -D vlc

comes back with an error message that "--from" is a no-no.

*However*, dropping "--from" results in being told that zypper won't install vlc 'cause the version already installed (1.9.99 which I have) is 'later' than its v1.1.13.

I'll stop here as anything else will only mind-boggle whoever may be following this thread :-D .
