    Default program similar to auto-apt

    Is there a openSUSE equivalent to the auto-apt program on debian.

    Yes, this is simmilar to apt-get. However auto-apt is a tool for compiling from source, and will automaticly install dependencies as needed from a debian repository using apt-get.

    To my knowledge there is no equivalent, ... although from what I have read, auto-apt is not without problems, often installing a lot of useless "false" dependencies.

    Thanks,

    I have used auto-apt a couple times, and was hoping I could find an equivelent for openSUSE. Despite the ocasional added dependency, it made installing from source a lot easier.

    Well I'm not quite sure what you're after but..

    source-install (si) <name> ...
    Install specified source packages and their build dependencies.

    This command will try to find the newest available versions of the source packages and use
    rpm -i to install them and the packages that are required to build the source package.

    Note that the source packages must be available in repositories you are using. You can check
    whether a repository contains any source packages using the following command:

    $ zypper search -t srcpackage -r <alias|#|URI>


    -d, --build-deps-only
    Install only build dependencies of specified packages.

    -D, --no-build-deps
    Don't install build dependencies.

    -r, --repo <alias|#|URI>
    Work only with the repository specified by the alias, number or URI. This option can be used
    multiple times.

    Examples:

    Install build dependencies of dbus-1 source package:
    $ zypper si -D dbus-1

    I am looking for a program that will either:
    a). Install all dependencies of a source file
    or
    b). Install the source file and dependencies
    Without the source package being in a repository.
    zypper -d <source> seems like it will work, if this is the correct way to use the command.
