    Default Where are the apps!?

    Hi,
    I installed openSUSE 11.4_amd64 on my system. All works fine but a lot of popular apps are missing from the repos. OpenSuse11.3 had them but 11.4 doesn't!

    I searched for apps like skype,isomaster,acetoneiso,openbravo erp,gsmartmon,smooth-task etc but didn't get any result.

    I have contrib and pacman repos enabled, still no luck...all the above mentioned apps were available in 11.3 then why not in 11.4..is it 'coz it released recently?

    Thanks

    It can take several weeks or more for the full array of applications to get put up

    Keep checking at: software.opensuse.org: Search Results

    I rely on openbravo for my business...this is unfair IMO, upgrade should be a completely viable option..

    Sadly, this delay in applications (especially unusual ones) is a well known and equally well commented on fact.

    Skype was never available from Packman repos. Download it directly from Skype.com. The version is for early openSuse but it works with 11.4.
    If your openSuse installation is 64 bit, you will need a few more 32bit packages installed (all available from YAST) for skype to work.

    If you relied on an app for your business, you should have checked before
    upgrading. It is very well known that many apps can take a long time to
    appear, even months. Certainly not in the first week!

    Apparently I didn't. Besides I thought that it would be like mint, to provide all apps after the release.

    Thanks for the info guys, I'll wait for the apps to be released.

    No, I don't know what I am doing (you learn by breaking).
    What other 32bit, if you don't mind ?

    Didn't you find the answers in the thread you called a "pissing contest" ... or didn't you read it from the beginning ... instead of complaining about how it ended?
