If upgrades are being put up for zypper to install couldn't someone at
least check to make sure that ALL the necessary files are available for
zypper to install?


Are you using the KDE:Factory repository?

Granted that repositories for stable release are assumed to be stable,
nonetheless it seems like this points out an opportunity for a (small?)
user-friendly enhancement to Yast. Somewhat like the idea of when you
try to run a not-yet-installed program where it makes the suggestion as
to how to do it, it would be neat if Yast could push out a message
suggesting that one add such-n-such a repository.

I second the idea and suggest that you add a request onto the wishlist
that automatically asks the installer if they would like to add the
repository. So many people, myself iat least, are battling to
understand the idea of repositories and finding a reliable secure
OpenSuSE specific one.


Add me to the list!

I've added it here:
