    you are running 64bit and the unrar you try installing in yast is the 64bit?
    Well I don't really know which version it wants to install...

    I just went to yast, install software and got the two screens mentioned in my message above.


    what is the top of the cmd zypper info --requires unrar ?
    will look like:
    Information for package unrar: zypper clean
    Here's the entire output :

    zypper info --requires unrar
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...


    Information for package unrar:

    I'll try the zypper clean command next.

    @malcolmlewis
    What happens if you just do zypper in unrar from the command line.
    I don't know yet, will that give me the chance to abort before it starts the operation?


    Thanks!

    Is this your first package install since doing a fresh install? iirc last time I did a dvd install after the initial install there were some added things added from the web repos

    the things that are being install are a not related to unrar, probably rpm's openSuse feels are important to be installeed but maybe weren't in the dvd because of size constraints. And the 400mb is probably after compression

    kde3 stuff
    translations
    documentation
    etc...

    yes,this is the first install - but I did an update via the update applet already before that.

    Yast->Online update shows no patches need to be updated.

    Ah, but under the "instakllation summary", I can see the same packages it wants to unstall also when I try to install unrar.

    So, you're right, these are packages that are supposed to be installed anyway, apaprently (why? and why aren't they installed inmmediately?)

    Well anyway, i've installed unrar via the "zypper in unrar" command as mentioned by malcolmlewis

    It works now

    Thanks to both of you for helping me out here!

    Hi
    That's because some aren't installed by default because they are not part of the oss repository but non-oss, so it takes an update to add along with dependencies. It's also the same for users installing from the LiveCD (like me ) as not all packages fit, but it makes for a nice lean install base to work from and add the applications I need and cut down on clutter.
