    Question Missing Software 11.4: Factory or 11.3 Repos better suited?

    I am missing quite some software in 11.4. Is it generally better to install such software from 11.3 repositories or from Factory?

    I easily find that software with the package search offered on software.opensuse.org: Download openSUSE 11.4, but not if I select "openSUSE 11.4". So should I rather choose "openSUSE 11.3" or "openSUSE Factory" by default, or is it more complicated?

    For example, I was missing "eclipse" (an IDE for Java), "ghc" (a popular Haskell compiler), etc. I did enable several community repositories.

    It's best to post the results of

    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    before analyzing your problem. You generally don't want to use 11.3 repos for 11.4. Eclipse isn't available on my system either so it must reside in a specialty repo.

    I have a question about how the 11.4 repositories are organised, but I don't have an actual problem, since installing the applications missing in 11.4 from the Factory repositories apparently worked just fine (although I did not keep the subscription to those repositories). I was just wondering what I should do in the future, or whether presumably popular applications like Eclipse is missing by accident from the 11.4 repositories.

    Anyway, here's what I get:
    Code:

    Similar question here... I wanted to install TOra on 11.4. Their website advise to use Packman or their repo, however Packman does not have the package and their repo up to 11.3 only. Am I safe to add their repo?

    Code:
    victor@linux-x5ee:~/downloads> zypper lr
