vendor repositories

When i updated my system to openSUSE 11.4 i added the KR46 repositorie in order to update KDE 4.6.0 to 4.6.1.But when i was trying to update my KDE packages via “yast->software managment->package->all packages->update if newer version available” yast wasn’t recognizing the packages from the KR46 repositorie.
The issue that i was coming again was the vendor repositories.Some repositories are marked as “vendor” from their developers in order to be sure that the users will choose to update them manually.This is done because the developers of these repositories want to minimaze the chances of screwing up the system.

The solution to this issue is to update the system via “yast->software managment->view->repositories->(choose the repositorie)->switch system packages”

I hope that you will find this useful.:)
