    Question Update the Repositories?

    Hi folks, I just installed OpenSuse 11.3 and I'm running Gnome. I used to use Ubuntu but the 64 bit version seems buggy.
    So here I am running OpenSuse 64 bit on a Dell D620.

    I am trying to install software like audacity and handbrake. Where do I add the repository information?

    Add the Packman repository.

    Additional package repositories - openSUSE

    Repositories can be managed in Yast, or through the terminal with zypper. For information, see

    Smile Re: Update the Repositories?

    You add Software Repositories then search for Software in Software Management, all done from YaST.

    Code:
    http://en.opensuse.org/Package_repositories
    http://en.opensuse.org/Additional_package_repositories
    http://en.opensuse.org/KDE_repositories
    http://en.opensuse.org/GNOME_repositories
    The above listing are the four main pages that list repositories. You select a server location for the version of openSUSE that you are using, for the software type you want, copy the URL and go into YaST / Software Repositories and then add it and give it a name.

    We suggest that once you get the software you want, disable any added repositories over the standard ones added for you.

    Thank You,
