Thread: Issues with package managment

    Default Issues with package managment

    I am having nothing but issues with opensuse. I am running v11. I am trying to install XMMS (MP3 player) and I get dependency errors. Tells me GTK+ is not installed but when I do yum install GTK it tells me its already installed. I went to gtk.org and just d/l'd the newest version and did ./configure and get a libtiff error and when I run yum install libtiff it tells me its already installed. This is not going well for me so any help is appreciated.
    I am coming from debian where I can just run apt-get and it resolves the dependencies. Isnt there something like that in opensuse? zypper doesnt work.

    If I do zypper install libtiff it tells me its already installed Nothing to do.
    But when I try to do ./configure for gtk+ I get an error saying libtiff not installed. TIFF loader failed.
    Is there a different syntax for zypper?

    Lets check what repos you have set up first, paste the output to the
    command zypper lr. That should list all the repos you have.

    You can also check http://en.opensuse.org/Zypper/Usage for all the
    different zypper commands that can be used.

    Ah ha....the xmms package is in the packman repo which you don't have set. If you add that repo you should be able to install xmms with no issues. I fyou would like to add the repo at the command line you can run: zypper ar Index of /suse/11.0 packman

    Please read our 'applications' subforum area stickie:
    Welcome to applications - openSUSE Forums

    My view is adding a bunch of different repositories on a permanent basis is BAD. Instead I will add them only long enough to install an application, and then remove them.

    This is easy to do with webpin being available: Webpin
    So in my case I search for an app on webpin. When I find it I do NOT use the "one-click-install" but instead, I add the repos, ... install my application, and then remove the repos.

    The packman repository you added is one of the most important on openSUSE for multimedia. Packman is one of the few repos I leave permanently installed. To get a better flavour as to what is available (including links to developers page) take a good look at this URL:
    PackMan :: Startseite
    The search function in the upper left of the Packman site works great!
