    Default "Good" vs "Bad" Repositories

    I recently saw an article on an app called Eagle Mode (
    HTML Code:
    http://eaglemode.sourceforge.net
    ).
    So I thought I'd give it a go, however, after running the .RPM I get the following error:
    PHP Code:
    nothing provides libpoppler-glib.so.4 needed by eaglemode-0.83.0-1.i586 
    Now if I search the almighty internet I do get locations where I can download an .RPM for this file.
    My question(s): What are considered "good" repositories? And if I do get this repository will it automatically handle the dependencies?

    Much appreciated.

    Sorry for the PHP and HTML code mix-up - I thought it was to highlight the different text.
    Will eventually get the hang of this editor.

    depends....have you tried searching for, and installing it from here:

    http://software.opensuse.org/search

    if you do, and you are BRAVE, and VERY careful, you might get a working
    example of Eagle Mode...

    but, since you didn't say what version of openSUSE you are using, then i
    can't be sure if you will install from Factory (i suggest you do NOT,
    but others might have a different opinion)..

    i see it is in a contrib repo for 11.4: but you never really know the
    expertise of those..

    on the other hand, if installed as a 1-Click it should settle all
    dependencies, in theory....tell us about what happen in practice..

    and, always when you 1-Click install either elect to NOT keep the repo
    enabled, or afterwards go to YaST > Software Repositories disable and
    stop the refreshing of all other than oss, non-oss, packman and update
    (therefore following the GREAT advice found in the paragraph beginning
    with "IMPORTANT" in this post: http://tinyurl.com/33qc9vu so that your
    repo list looks kinda like mine: http://paste.opensuse.org/81397698

    Because we have libpoppler-glib.so.5, which is newer. Your rpm is old, or
    not designed for openSUSE.

    Thank you very much for the replies from all (DenverD - I like the disclaimer),

    I guess at this stage since I only just started playing with openSuse (12.1 - I must remember to add these details!) so there is still a balance between RTFM and playing with a trial installation.
    I like what I see so far and must say that this is a very helpful community.

    Thanks again for all the pointers.
