Thread: Package Manager update?

    Default Package Manager update?

    Hi,

    Do I have to update the package manager that comes with OpenSuse before I get all packages?

    For whatever reason using the live cd I can't find any of apps I am looking for but on packman.org I can find all of them.



    Thanks.

    Software found on Packman often won't be found in the official repos due to licensing issues, but with OSS, non-OSS, updates and Packman, you should have nearly everything you need. You won't need the CD to manage software. Anything included on the CD will also be found in the OSS repository.

    You would have to add the packman repository (it'll be in the 'community
    repositories' list in yast's repository management) and then the packages
    will show up.
