I've read the zypper man page, but it doesn't explain the output. Therefore, I am asking you to explain me what "S" column stands for.

For example. Type:

zypper se -s post 

Some of the output looks like this:

S | Name                                | Type       | Version               | Arch   | Repository            
--+-------------------------------------+------------+-----------------------+--------+-----------------------   
  | libgda-4_0-postgres                 | package    | 4.1.2-1.3.48          | x86_64 | SLE11SP3-SERVER       
i | libqt4-sql-postgresql               | package    | 4.6.3-5.32.1          | x86_64 | SLE11SP3-SDK-UPDATE   
v | libqt4-sql-postgresql               | package    | 4.6.3-5.29.2          | x86_64 | SLE11SP3-SDK-UPDATE   
v | libqt4-sql-postgresql               | package    | 4.6.3-5.25.4          | x86_64 | SLE11SP3-SDK  

The questions are:

  1. What "i" means? (I think it means installed)
  2. What "v" means?
  3. What whitespace means (I think it means not installed)

    i+ means package installation initiated by user – MarcoZen Aug 24 '17 at 14:26

Found here: Zypper manual

The status column can contain the following values: i - installed, v - another version installed, or an empty space for neither of the former cases

  • What does "another version installed" refer to? Does that mean that there is a different version installed other than the version available from the repository? – Motivated Nov 18 '18 at 6:37
