    openSUSE Updater has been running alright upto now but when I allowed it to

    Yes I see something similar. Seems some repo's aren't functioning at this
    moment. Usually when this happens it is quickly repaired though.

    3 or 4 of the many repo's I have on my install list failed..

    Just wait a while..maybe a few hours.

    P.S. Could be any number of things..perhaps they're updating the servers
    right now.

    Yes... there was a change. I just picked a hardcoded update area for now.
    Sigh... we really need to figure this stuff out.

    SUSE 7 slow updates
    SUSE 8 slow updates
    SUSE 8.1 lightning fast updates
    SUSE 10.1 whoops
    SUSE 10.2 whoops part 2
    SUSE 10.3 found something slower than SUSE 7 updates

    Sigh...

    No issues with speed.

    No issues with speed

    No difference noticed with anything before.

    > SUSE 10.1 whoops


    Never had a problem. I just used YaST not the online updater, which was
    solved after an update

    Never had an issue

    Nothing that I notice.

    So obviously YMMV.

    It takes about 1 minute to even list the patches. All the
    "cleaning/updating repository" work needs a full minute. And that's on
    a dual core CPU (Core 2 Duo E6600) with 2GB RAM.

    I agree with Nikos. It seems to me that there is a real problem
    here. As the repositories get larger and larger, it takes longer
    and longer to download the indexes and longer and longer to "clean"
    what is on my machine.

    This is independent of my connection which can range from a direct
    internet connection (i.e. I have a permanent IP number) at work to
    good old wireless "b" mode on my portable. They are all slow.

    The repository system just begs to be compared with the Debian one (used
    in Ubuntu). Listing all available patches needs mere seconds there :P

    And now with the flexibility of multiple repositories, each of which
    forces cache updating and each having a varied response time... well...
    it just makes the problem worse and worse.

    Granted, back in that 8.1 - 10.0 period, we still had pretty much
    the SUSE-only repos (except for guru and packman which made
    YOU compatible repos). Good times and lightning fast updates....

    The new (10.2+, not necessarily counting Zen) thing just reminds of the
    pains of what we had to endure back in the version 7 days. And it
    wasn't fast then no matter what "some" might say. Which is why it
    started to be fixed in 8.0 and ultimately was pretty much fixed in 8.1.

    The Debian derived system that Ubuntu use suffers from other problems
    (problems mainly caused by trying to support all versions of all things
    in all combinations... which is pretty much impossible).

    I know. I've used Ubuntu. I prefer openSuSE in most other things.

    You forgot 10.0. I stayed on it as long as I could because of the
    borked package management in later versions.

    I don't know what houghi thinks is fast, but compared to 10.0 the
    current system is a joke. 10.0 wasn't great - still took more time than
    using apt on my Debian sandbox at work, but it was tolerable. This
    updating this/cleaning that etc. is nuts.

    Not to mention quality control. I installed Timidity and while it
    works, the pull down menus just display square boxes. The rpm was built
    by some fellow in Japan, so I'm guessing the menus are in Japanese but I
    don't have that language set enabled so just see squares.

    I read the other day someone suggesting to use a DNS type system. That
    makes a lot of sense to me. Heck, the RBLs use it to track countless
    thousands of spam messages - surely it could easily handle a couple
    thousand application versions...

    I agree about the package management bugs following 10.0 but cannot say I
    actually tried the fixes--10.0 was where I got off the SuSE bus, in terms
    of actively installing it.

    Also, in my readings, it seems to me some bugs in many package management
    schemes are introduced by the "independent" sites (especially for what is
    possibly illegal in some jurisdictions, like video codecs). Same for what
    turns out to be mysterious tarballs some download and try to install with
    little regard for their package management system requirements.

    JMO; YMMV...

    I did not say it is fast. I say _I_ do not see any problems with the
    speed. You can turn off the updating for each repo if you so desire.

    That is for sure one of the problems.
    Guys often use any kind of software source, and then tarball or rpm with
    borked specs breaks the system.

    Fine thread with a lot of YMMV :-)
    IMHO, any post, with or without JMO; YMMV etc, should be taken as it implies
    them. Than world would be a better place, at least at this corner.

    Indeed and also best to read Usenet with a smile on your face. It will
    make it all much easier.

    Another thing that almost always should be implied is that all things
    are 'in my opinion', but YMMV.

    I think these are two different issues. One issue is the time
    it takes to even see a list of updates presented. The other is
    the quality or nature of the packages to be downloaded.

    There is a limit to how much openSuSE can do about the latter.

    I can agree with above, but not everyone does. YMMV :-D

    Sure, but then how do you get notified of updates. Some repos are
    turned off on my system, such as the Nvidia one. Can't turn them all
    off though and still run a reasonably patched system. Or am I missing
    something?

    I don't know whether it's a problem or not. But it is an annoyance and
    I know it could be better. This 'good enough for the girls we go with'
    attitude puts us not far from the Microsoft camp IMHO. Open source is
    wide open for innovation but too often we settle for much less...

    By email once they are done.

    Perhaps the fact that you do not do the updates automagicaly.

    > I don't know whether it's a problem or not. But it is an annoyance and
    > I know it could be better.


    Then by all means give the solution to the developers and/or give us the
    bugnumber that you opend and where you are working with the developers
    on a solution.

    Whate 'we' settle for is what 'we' want. You say you know it could be
    better. That means you have the solution. Why do you not share that
    solution with the development team.

    Open source is wide open for innovation, but too often we settle to wait
    and let others do it for us. Or people just start asuming things,
    instead of knowing.
