Thread: How many Repositories do I need?

  1. #1

    Default How many Repositories do I need?

    I want to know if there repos can interfere with each other?
    A complete list of repos in my system:

    openSUSE 11.2 (debug, non oss, source, base, updates)
    home:doiggl
    games
    packman.iu-breman.de
    GNOME:Backports:2:30
    GNOME:Factory
    NVIDIA Repo
    Packman Repo
    X11:RemoteDesktop
    VLC Repositories
    PK_TMP_DIR

    Long Story: I did a fresh install 11.2 over this weekend and found some
    of my favorite programs/apps missing (e.g., vlc, mpg123, twolame, vncserver). I found some documentation here on how to install
    VLC etc., which required adding a new repo to the list. Now I have
    about half a dozen repos in addition to the original.


    Thanks.

    Comment on the list:
    openSUSE 11.2 (debug, non oss, source, base, updates +oss)
    home:doiggl your choice
    games your choice, I have it too
    packman.iu-breman.de double see *
    GNOME:Backports:2:30 don't
    GNOME:Factory don't
    NVIDIA Repo if you have the hardware
    Packman Repo double see *
    X11:RemoteDesktop don't
    VLC Repositories only install libdvdcss, disable afterwards
    PK_TMP_DIR your choice

    After disabling the VLC repo, select the Packman repo in the software installer's repo view, and hit "Switch system packages..." to avoid/solve conflicts with VLCrepo packages. The packages mentioned are all being served by Packman.

    This is how one thinks one can report out of ones head with a lot of typos what one thinks that may be on the system.

    A simple copy/paste of the output of zypper lr -d between CODE tags is to easy.
