Thread: Question about installing apps

  1. #1

    Default Question about installing apps

    Hello!

    When I download an RPM file, sometimes it has some dependecies not satisfied by my system. I'm using yast. When it happens I have to go to the package search and manually search and install them.

    Are there any ways to do it automatically?

    I know it is a noob's question, but in linux i'm totally new ;x


    I also would like to know if there are any documentation/tutorial on app install on linux...

    Thanks!

    Generally, if you set up repositories and use zypper to install programs, dependencies will be automatically pulled in.

    Unfortunately, if you are getting a RPM file that was not in any of those repositories, you have to resolve the dependencies by separately downloading and installing them.

    the above should answer your "I also would like to know if there are
    any documentation/tutorial on app install on linux..."
