    Default OpenSuSE - Selected Packages and Dependencies (i586 & i686)

    OpenSuSE 11.0 Packages+Dependencies June 2008

    Hi everyone
    A few days back, Novell released the latest version of OpenSuSE, version 11.0. I started downloading the distro as soon as it was officially released, and completed the download the day before yesterday. I first installed it with KDE 4, and like before, it sucks big time. I guess itś a matter of choice, but I still prefer KDE 3.5.x. Gnome is pretty well done this time and is very slick and fast.
    Anyway, as I did with OpenSuSE 10.3, I have made an archive of some multimedia applications with their dependencies whcih can be used on PCs not connected to the internet or for mass installation. This has been tested on KDE4, KDE 3.5 and GNOME.

    Download the archive June2008 from here
    Mirror 1: Mediafire
    Mirror 2: FTP Download

    An optional archive is this i686.zip that contains extra packages for i686 architecture. If you are not sure whether you need it or not, better download it too.
    Mirror 1: Mediafire
    Mirror 2: FTP Download

    Extract the archive(s) to a folder called June2008 in your home folder.

    Note: KDE4 ark seems to have some issues??? The Extract function of the gui in Ark does not seem to work, at least for me. You can work around this by clicking on the archive to open it in a window, press Ctrl and A on your keyboard to select all the rpms, minimise this window, open your home folder, create the June2008 folder, and paste the contents into it; then it works fine.

    Steps:
    1. Press Alt and F2 and type the following
    if you are a KDE user
    yast

    if you are a GNOME user
    yast2

    and press ENTER

    2. Key in your root password and press ENTER

    7. Now click on Software Management


    8. In GNOME type the package name in the filters box and see the package automatically come up as you type.

    Select the package and click install. Repeat this step with all the packages listed above till you have finished all, then click Apply in that window.

    KDE users - type the name of package you are looking for in the search box and click search

    When you find the package you want check it. The dependencies will automatically get selected.
    Do this till you cover all the above packages. Click Apply

    Enjoy your OpenSuSE 11.0 !!!
    Next update will be on August 1st 2008.

    An even easer way is to just add the packman repository.

    Up near the top is a radio button for community repositories. Click that, and add packman, and whatever other repositories you want.
