Andreas Jaeger releases package update test respository

by @ 10:14 am. Filed under General SUSE, SUSE News

If the broken package update tool drives you as crazy as it does me, Andreas Jaeger’s release this morning of a test updater is refreshing. His explanation:

“After the release of SUSE Linux 10.1, we did real online updates (instead of the test updates during beta and RC phase) and those showed a couple of issues in our package management stack that our developers fixed during the last weeks – and continue to fix. From the reports we received, and from our own testing, we expect that the most important bugs are fixed now and therefore want to release on online update. I released a first test patch already last week and our testing revealed that we needed to fix some more bugs and therefore I release today an updated test repository. We created this time a repository with a real patch in it for testing.”

He further warns, “If you like to test, please read below the details – otherwise wait for the online update that we will release soon. Until the online update has been installed, I advise to run as root “yast2 online_update” for patch installation.
