    Default How To install Smart on openSUSE-11.0 (Again)

    I found this thread in the How-to FAQ; I don't think I can reply to it there.

    I have been following the instruction in a posting by oldcpu, dated 30 June 2008. Unfortunately my ISP had an equipment failure part way through the process. I have repeated the instructions this morning, with this result:

    Dimension:/home/asquared # zypper ar -r http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...1.0/smart.repo
    Adding repository 'The Smart Package Manager project (openSUSE_11.0)' [done]
    Repository named 'smart' already exists. Please use another alias.
    Dimension:/home/asquared # zypper ref smart
    Repository 'The Smart Package Manager project (openSUSE_11.0)' is up to date.
    Specified repositories have been refreshed.
    Dimension:/home/asquared # zypper ref smart
    Repository 'The Smart Package Manager project (openSUSE_11.0)' is up to date.
    Specified repositories have been refreshed.
    Dimension:/home/asquared # smart channel --add http://linux01.gwdg.de/~pbleser/file...nsuse-11.0.txt
    bash: smart: command not found



    How do I recover from this?
    They said I wasn't fit to live with a pig; my brother stood up for me and said I was.

    How do I recover from this?
    Try to remove the repository. ... ie
    zypper rr smart
    and then start all over again from the start

    ... and don't forget the line:
    zypper install smart (I don't see it above).

    Also, further to the above, try to apply some common sense to this, ... ie check if smart is installed already? (Also note you must run smart with root permissions). To check if smart is installed, simply type:
    rpm -q smart
