    Thumbs down YaST dependency problem - openSUSE 11.4

    Hello everyone.

    My very first time using openSUSE 11.4.

    Every time I try to install a package, say for example "Geany" which is a c++ IDE from the community repositories, I always get an error like this: "some dependency problem". I have attached the log file you guys can have a look at it and tell me what is wrong.

    note read to end before following any steps..

    those are some REALLY strange dependency problems...it seems like it
    wants to UNinstall openSUSE 11.4

    what package are you trying to install, and from where???

    i don't know how you are trying to install, but try this (it is a very
    *normal* way to install stuff onto openSUSE):

    -click on YaST
    -give root password when asked
    -go "Software Repositories" and disable all repos except those for
    11.4 oss, non-oss, update and packman
    -click ok
    -go "Software Management"
    -in the search block type geany
    -click search
    -in right pane see "geany" (and, some others probably)
    -single left click the box to the left of "geany"
    -a check mark will appear in that box and every other box that YaST
    'knows' you *will* need (unless you want to help develop geany itself,
    you will not need "geany-devel")
    -click "Accept"
    -YaST may or may not show you a list (long or short) of items it wants
    to install along with geany--say OK/Yes/Please!! because those are the
    'dependencies' which MUST be present on the system for geany to
    operate as expected..
    -after some whirring and clicking geany will have been installed and
    you can then find it in the menu system..

    ps:

    1. we also have a pastbin at http://paste.opensuse.org/
    2. coming from Ubuntu (i guess) you might also like zypper, which is
    (i understand) kinda apt-like
    3. if by following the above step-by-step you get a similar long list
    to UNinstall, do NOT accept it
    4. do NOT assume anything you learned in Ubuntu is any more correct
    here as anything you may have learned on a Mac or Win machine...yes
    Linux is Linux, but "Linux" is a *kernel* everything else is a
    distribution, and SUSE existed before even Debian...so . . .
    5. other differences are covered in one or more of these links:

    6. read my caveat prior to making any changes to your system.
