To prevent the action prompt from being displayed in the future during updating, you can specify an additional repository as follows:

Linux:

#echo "[foreign]
enabled=1
autorefresh=1
baseurl=https://repo.drweb.com/drweb/foreign/linux/11.1/<arch>
type=rpm-md" > /etc/opt/drweb.com/zypp/repos.d/drweb-foreign.repo

FreeBSD:

#echo "[foreign]
enabled=1
autorefresh=1
baseurl=https://repo.drweb.com/drweb/foreign/freebsd/11.1/<arch>
type=rpm-md" > /usr/local/etc/drweb.com/zypp/repos.d/drweb-foreign.repo

here <arch> specifies the platform for which the packages are intended:

  • Version for 32-bit systems: i386
  • Version for 64-bit systems: x86_64

After that you need to download and install the updated Dr.Web packages. To accomplish this, navigate to /bin (GNU/Linux – /opt/drweb.com/bin) and run the following commands:

# ./zypper refresh
# ./zypper update
