    Cool, though it would nice if it was a 2-page PDF rather than 2x 1-page
    ones to make it easier for printing duplex.

    Since I'm not familiar much with CLI, I combined the 2 docs using 'pdfsam'; or you can just printout back-to-back.

    This is a neat idea.

    I think the commands need to be checked for accuracy. I use the Smart Package Manager a lot more than I use zypper (hence I am not very familiar with zypper) but within seconds of skimming I noted the example syntax for "zypper ar" was not correct.

    The example given was:
    Code:
    zypper ar http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.1/repos/oss
    without assigning a name. Does not one have to assign a name, and hence that should have read something like:
    Code:
    zypper ar http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.1/repos/oss OSS
    I don't have the zypper knowledge to note problems in other areas by reading, but IMHO where there is smoke there could be fire.

    Hi,

    Looks good, and a nice reference to have when you're new to suse or zypper; however I will be sticking with
    Code:
    man zypper
    when I forget something.

    Regards,
    Barry.

    I just found http://en.opensuse.org/Zypper/Usage#Cheat_sheet which uses
    a different example to the above which is correct.

    HTH.

    Thanks for pointing out that link!

    I also note that http://forums.opensuse.org/new-user-...ease-read.html has a link to Zypper/Usage/11.1 - openSUSE , so we have a link in place for new users.
