    Default New user needs help

    Okay I finally decided to install openSUSE and I have a few questions. First and biggest, how do I add the packman repository as one repo? and will doing so add tumbleweed?

    Hi,

    First thing : do you have some experience with linux distros ? Because I don't think it is wise to install the Tumbleweed repo.

    To add the packman repo :

    Code:
    zypper ar -n packman-essentials http://packman.inode.at/suse/openSUSE_11.4/Essentials packman-essentials
    zypper ar -n packman-multimedia http://packman.inode.at/suse/openSUSE_11.4/Multimedia packman-multimedia

    there is some good info on opensuse.org that you might wish to peruse
    openSUSE Leap 42.1 x64, Plasma 5 & KDE 4.14.x, pretty current proprietary Nvidia drivers (self-compiled)

    To add the Packman repository in one fell swoop do the following:

    YaST / Software / Software Repositories / Add Button (Bottom Left) / Specify URL (The Default) / Next Button (Bottom Right) and enter:

    Code:
    http://packman.inode.at/suse/openSUSE_11.4/
    I can't recommend using Tumbleweed until you got your original system working and perhaps not even then unless you really understand what this will be doing.

    First thing, as said by jdmcdaniels, make sure your system is setup correctly before going in Tumbleweed.

    For the Tumbleweed :

    Code:
    zypper ar -n packman http://packman.inode.at/suse/openSUSE_Tumbleweed packman
    And you need :

    Code:
    zypper ar --refresh http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/openSUSE:/Tumbleweed/standard/ Tumbleweed
    and you have to do a distro update from Tumbleweed as needed. The first time you will need to accept the GPG key:
    Code:
    zypper dup --from Tumbleweed

    I think I will avoid tumbleweed for now. but adding all the packman repos as one will not include tumbleweed right?

    Like jdmcdaniels pointed it, that is right.

    That is correct. Tumbleweed is not Packman, nor is Packman Tumbleweed.
    They are separate repositories.
