Fucking texlive I tell you. I'm only every third weekend at home and every single time openSUSE Tumbleweed wants to update 4k+ packages where over half of them are texlive.

I've just got my LaTeX stuff flatpaked. (Well most stuff is actually since I switched to Silverblue). Makes the entire mess much neater. Although I believe the Flatpak installs the full Texlive scheme by default. So it may not really be the best option if you just plan on using a few basic packages.


Kostins

Yeah, that shit happens to me every time. So, I think, I'll add a lock to texlive packages.


Kostins

And some weird stuff, I've deleted some packages and they appear in update new packages in update summary


St3rMario

TIL Fedora had a rolling release cycle.


CNR_07

I think it's called Fedora Rawhide.


Kostins

It is OpenSuse with dnf(for parallel package download)


Doom-Slay

Yeah that hits a bit too close to home now that my OpenSuse Tumbleweed Virtual Machine wanted to update over 2200 packages.


CNR_07

They switched to a new version of GCC so all packages had to be recompiled. That's why everything is being updated right now.


Doom-Slay

I should have expected that after seeing GCC in the Updates list from zypper.


Kostins

Actually it's OpenSuse too, but I decided to use dnf for faster downloading.


Doom-Slay

I still have to use DNF once. For daily use i am more of an Pacman+yay(as my AUR Helper) kind of guy.


CNR_07

I feel your pain. SuSE is switching to GCC 12 so all packages on openSUSE Tumbleweed are being updated right now. 3800+ updates yesterday.

Arch users after not updating for 2.47 seconds:


RandomTyp

not me updating 690 packages on manjaro yesterday


ihadashittyday

_packages that were delayed for two weeks_


RandomTyp

as someone who has to use windows at work and regularly does manual windows server updates, i think 2w is really not bad i just updated a thingy from September 2021 the other day so yeah i am cool with 2 weeks


Nihilinux-9000

What is the problem with that? They don't delay all packages as security updates get pushed right through, so at worst you have to wait a few weeks to get some new features (or bugs) in certain software. Who cares?

r/nice


dark_soul_0946

just had to upgrade my arch install with around 5k packages with 3.6gigs after returning from a 2 week holiday


Kostins

I can feel your pain, especially if you have big latency. How long did it take?


dark_soul_0946

about an hour my connection was a bit slow
