Thread: Repository software

  1. #1

    Default Repository software

    Hello,
    I'm a new user of OpenSUSE.
    I'm coming from an experience with Debian and Kubuntu distro, now i've installed OpenSUSE for trying a RPM based distro.
    I'm wondering about wich repository i should add: on Kubuntu i find all the software i've been searchin for in the repos, but here in opensuse i can't find, for example
    Cryptkeeper,
    QtCreator,
    SuperTuxKart
    SuperTux
    ...
    and many other.

    The repos that I already have are:

    zypper lr

    14 | spideroak-stable | SpiderOak Stable Distribution | Yes | No
    15 | wrapped | Wrapped proprietary applications | Yes | No

    Are many software in the Ubuntu repos not present in Opensuse 12.1 repos?
    If not, which repos should i add to find all the software i was used to find in Ubuntu?

    Thank you very much for your help,
    WK.

    never used Ubuntu, so i wouldn't know what you are missing...but,
    _maybe_ that is covered here http://tinyurl.com/ubuntu-to-openSUSE

    start by reading and following the great advice given in the paragraph
    beginning with "IMPORTANT" in the new-to-openSUSE FAQ forum thread here:
    http://tinyurl.com/33qc9vu, those should cover most of your
    needs--always go there first, using YaST Software Management...other
    needes you can usually find at http://software.opensuse.org/search but
    two cautions: 1) do NOT let repos added there remain enabled and
    refreshing..and 2) to remain stable and fun, do not install for any repo
    with one of these in its name: factory, tumbleweed, playground,
    unstable, evergreen..

    here is what my repos look like today: http://paste.opensuse.org/81397698

    go slowly, there are LOTS of differences between the two distros..

    Welcome here.

    I think you got allreay plenty to read from DenverD. If that is not enough, please come back here.

    In the meantime when you post computer output (like the repo listing above), please do so between CODE tags: http://forums.opensuse.org/english/i...ags-guide.html
    This will conserve the layout the computer generated and thus make everything much more human interpretable.

    Thanks DenverD!
    In fact is quite different from deb repos, because here the software is spread across a big number of repos, but using software.opensuse.org: Search Results as you said it automatically add the repos and download the software... nice!
    I'll follow your advice and the how-to keeping only the 4 principal repos enabled (actually playing with repos gave me some "conflic" :-)

    Thanks hcvv for the wellcome, I promise next time i will post code correctly (i didn't find a way to modify the original post).

    It is a bit of a step to think the openSUSE way. Nice you allready found out how it works.

    And yes, the CODE tags is for an eventual next post. The feature is not too visible, that is why I advertise a lot for it, especialy with new memebers

    And changing old posts is locked indeed (only allowed for about 5 mins to correct a forgotten typo). We do not want the posts changing in a way that the discussion becomes ununderstandable for future readers. When you would have changed your first post here by replacing the repos list with a CODE taged one, nobody will understand my post anymore.
