    as far as i can see neither YaST nor http://software.opensuse.org/ knows
    of a package named novell-client-2.0 or novell-client

    so, i wonder where you got the application and what is the name of the rpm.

    oh, and wherever you got it from (novell??), do they provide
    documentation on how to install it??

    while waiting for a better answer here, you might try asking over in

    I have zero experience with it, but looking into that small iso file you
    can download there are several rpm's in it. I wonder if you simply tried
    to install them and what happens (I have not much hope that it works
    since SLES is not openSUSE but maybe worth a try).
    I doubt that anyone can package this software for openSUSE, it seems not
    to be free open source software but proprietary.

    As I recall, you need to install a different version of one core library
    (you can install a second version manually), but then it should work. I
    had it running on 11.4 and while it did take a little extra work to get
    it working, it did generally work OK.

    then you should install it on SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop (SLED) 11..

    or if you want one for openSUSE 12.1 you probably need to request that
    from Novell..

    you do realize, don't you, that SLED 11 and openSUSE 12.1 not only have
    different names and numbers but also they _are_ different?

    SLED 11 and (i guess) support for Novell Client is available at suse.com

    It can be made to work on openSUSE 12.1 (and other releases) and is
    perfectly fine for someone to ask here how to get it to work.

    well of course it is perfectly fine o ask here also about any other
    novell or suse.com product....i didn't did not say otherwise...i simply
    tried to point the OP to where i _think_ his best potential support
    awaits his question..

    but, if you can tell him how to make it work, or a better place to seek
    assistance then please do..

    unlike you i've never seen a novell-client and actually have no idea
    what it does, so i can _only_ contribute my best guess on where help
    resides, and this:
    http://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Aopensuse.org+"novell+client"

    Have you tried the procedure used for an earlier version
    such as:

    http://www.novell.com/communities/no...novell-client-
    opensuse-112

    It seems like whenever a new version of OpenSuSE comes out there are
    problems with libbfd which goes back I think to the LTS requirements
    of SLES/SLED. OpenSuSE is a bit more of a moving target for the Novell
    Client so you have to basically manually add in some backwards
    compatibility.

    Indeed, that's why I replied in this thread - I'm familiar with the
    client in question and how to get it working on openSUSE.
