If you've been pointed at this page, then the chances are you're a relatively new Linux user who's having some problems making the switch from Windows to Linux. This causes many problems for many people, hence this article was written. Many individual issues arise from this single problem, so the page is broken down into multiple problem areas.

My name is Joe 'Zonker' Brockmeier, and if you're wondering, I prefer Zonker. No exciting story behind the nick, I'm afraid -- it goes back to an "underground" newspaper I worked on in college.
I'm a Linux advocate and enthusiast, and have been using Linux since 1996 when I discovered Slackware Linux, and have been working with Linux and writing about it since about 1999.
I've written for Linux Magazine, Sys Admin, IBM developerWorks, Linux Weekly News, Enterprise Linux Magazine, NewsFactor, ComputorEdge, Corante, ZDNet, Unix Review,,,, and a few other publications that slip my mind at the moment. I've also written and contributed to books about Slackware Linux, DocBook, Linux Networking, and other open source topics.
As of February 1st 2008, I joined Novell as the openSUSE Community Manager. You can find my blog for all things openSUSE at

All distro releases have bugs – including openSUSE, many of which will of course be fixed via online updates in the coming weeks and months. However so far I’m not aware of any major bugs that will cause a lot of grief to legions of people.

I predict that the thing that will cause the most people to say “wtf!?!” in 11.2 is actually intended behaviour. YaST/zypper will not show nor perform updates that involve “vendor changes” (i.e. updating an official package to a newer version of the same software from packman) unless the user explicitly does some extra work.

You roughly have these coping strategies:

  • Don’t worry about it and stick with the old versions included in the distro no matter how many 3rd party repositories you add.
  • Manually go to the Repositories tab or the Versions tab in YaST Software Management, and manually select the updates you want – or manually specify the versions you want on the command line with zypper (note, you only have to do the extra work to change vendor once per package).
  • Set AllowVendorChange = true in /etc/zypp/zypp.conf – this way YaST/zypper will update everything to whatever has the highest version number – and let you ping-pong back and forth between package vendors, if that’s what you want.

In the future the tools are expected to be improved, so that the vendor stickyness becomes less annoying and obtrusive.
