    Default webpin

    Is webpin working for 11.3?

    If I look for some package in opensuse 11.3 the answer is always "No results found"
    The same searches for 11.2 produce useful results.

    Yes, webpin works. But it is possible that the webpin index hasn't been entirely generated.

    Maybe that is what happens.

    If I search for kdebase4 in opensuse11.2 I get a lot of answers. In 11.3 "No results found"
    If I search for kdenlive in 11.2 I get answers in opensuse repos and in packman. Searching in 11.3 the answer is just in packman repo.

    It seems that it doesn't work for the official opensuse repos. At least in this part of the world.

    It's still the same.

    I can try software.opensuse.org: Search Results but it doesn't search in packman repos, I think.
    Anyway with both search systems I can manage.

    why don't you try using YaST?
    you can, that way, specify exactly which repos you access/search..

    i recommend you enable only oss, non-oss, update and packman..

    OK. I know that. It was just that webpin was useful to find a specific package that is not in the enabled repos. Of course, it's not a big issue: there are many other ways to find things.
    Thanks anyway.

    I've learned this already. I have enabled also kde4.5 and kde-extra, acording to a post by caf4926. The experience confirm that it's a good advice; I think it's worthwhile insisting on that for newbies like me.
    Thanks for this too.

    I never use webpin, I always use SoftwareSearch.
    When you search for kdebase4 for openSUSE 11.3 you find a lot of packages from different repositories.

    Hopes this info is useful.

    Good luck!
    Where did I put my coffee cup?
    dir -R /home/* | grep "coffee cup"

    Thanks, Edward_Iii

    Really, I was not looking for help. That's the reason I posted in this forum (Chit-Chat) and not in Applications or other under the title "Get help here".

    I just wanted to know if other people were experiencing the same as me.

    Anyway, I see that most people use SoftwareSearch and not webpin. This is already interesting to know.

    I do not know if this is related to the original question, but I think I
    read somewhere that in 11.2 webpin searched also the home projects at the
    OBS and due to the problems which can come from that in 11.3 the search in
    the home projects is disabled in webpin, so that 11.3 simply searches less
    repositories by default.
    (I do not use it so I cannot be sure).
