    hey mike,

    you can use the yast software installation or, if you have the rpm package on your computer, you can use the right click on the package and choose install.

    Hi
    I use the following command;
    Code:
    sudo rpm -Uhv <name_of_rpm>
    Or if you have some that have dependencies and they are all in the same
    directory, use the wildcard
    Code:
    sudo rpm -Uhv *
    You may also want to have a look here as there may be a repository with
    the applications already;
    Get It
    or from the cli on 11.1 (console/konsole);
    Code:
    /sbin/yast2 webpin_package_search

    Hi,

    instead of rpm or yast2 you can also use zypper for installing rpms:
    Code:
    zypper install (in) [options] <capability|rpm_file_uri>
    (for example: zypper in <path to file.rpm>)

    Also local rpms are allowed and all dependencies will get resolved during installation.

    Hope this helps

    Don't ask "if" something can be done, for it can always be done. Rather instead ask "How" can it be done.

    If you have a good repositories added to yast2 maybe the rpm you want is ready to be installed. If it is not present and you downloaded the rpm you can still install it using
    yast2 -i --install <name of your package> if there are no dependencies it will be installed. As the poster above mine says try reading it. or man yast2

    Normally, you can install an rpm by double-clicking on it (then following the instruction.. "next, next" stuff; you'll also have to provide the root password when asked.)

    Now, popular software can be found in repositories. You can use
    software.opensuse.org/search to search a program and you can click the "1-Click Install" button next to it. This will automatically handle everything (adding the necessary repository, installing the package, dependencies etc.).

    For example, to install hamlog you can click on this link:
    http://software.opensuse.org/ymp/ham...1.1/hamlog.ymp
    This will also add the hamradio repository, so you can further install any hamradio package using yast2.
