specific patch versions


The appliance’s repo has these patches:

# zypper lp -a

Repository                  | Name   | Version | Category    | Status
Sentinel-Server-7.0-Updates | update | 1       | Recommended | needed
Sentinel-Server-7.0-Updates | update | 251     | Security    | not needed
Sentinel-Server-7.0-Updates | update | 252     | Security    | not needed
Sentinel-Server-7.0-Updates | update | 253     | Security    | not needed

I can get the info on the latest version like this:

# zypper info -t patch update
Refreshing service 'nu_novell_com'.

Is it possible to get information on a specific patch version? I’ve
tried “zypper info -t patch update-123” but that just errors out: patch
‘update-123’ not found.

BTW: Is there a way to upgrade/downgrade to a specific patch version?


I think you need to get the information for the package and specify the full package version for zypper. If that doesn’t work, I’m out of ideas.
