I think having everything within Zen updater is easiest. You
always know when there are newer versions of any software
installed on your system.
OTOH if you add the sources as I do in my instructions there they
also appear as YaST sources. So when you see the globe go orange
you can just as well install them in YaST if you like.
In that case you'd go YaST > Software Management > select Package
Groups > zzzall > all in this list > install if newer version is
available. That's real easy, too. The second easiest method :)
No need to install individual rpms by downloading and installing
source) that either the dependencies aren't there and it quits when you
say ok or update starts and it can't find a file and quits when you say
ok. I am finding that once I have added a new installation source and
updated everything with Yast, the next time there is an update, zen
handles it ok. It turns orange and updates fine. It also turns orange
when you add a new source but that's when it will choke out.
In other words it just don't handle exceptions very well.
I have seen this, especially with Guru and Packman and in cases
of several updates in one go. I have thought it's because those
two are very busy and actively updated.
Most of the times like that I've let Zen alone for a while and it
has worked afterwards. I don't remember when it would not have
got fixed by itself.
It's very true that Zen works unacceptably slow for most. But I'm
running on slow hardware anyway and I'm in no hurry when I see a
new version of a program.
That's the good thing in Zen, it keeps you informed, not only
about security patches but version updates as well.
For example while in 10.0 I went on latest KDE once, I think it
was the 3.5.1 on 10.0 while the official there was 3.4.x (still
is). There were many situations when it got screwed up for days
before a fix appeared on the mirror. Of course I needed to watch
and check that on daily basis and I decided not to go for that again.
I'm on KDE 3.5.1 still in 10.1 and I don't intend to change that.
So I'm not letting Zen know about the installation source of
newer KDE versions :)
Sometimes I reply to top posters. Seldom. And usually just once.
