    A checksum error means you have a corrupted download of the file. Try
    downloading the package again and see if you get a clean download.

    You should start a separate thread for each problem. When you post your
    new thread, keep in mind "not working" doesn't tell us anything - we need
    specific information about what you are doing and what happens. You may
    try launching it from a terminal window to see if there's any error
    output.

    Probably bad copies of those two packages are stored locally in the system,
    these have to be erased before a redownload will succeed. But I'm unsure of
    where exactly the copies will be. Perhaps under /var/cache/zypp/packages.

    Unless it is related to the two packages that did not install. :-?

    zypper clean

    That will take care of the cached packages directory. Good point, though.

    I'm unfamiliar with nepomuk, certainly if it has a dependency on one of
    these packages, that might be true.

    But I don't see nepomuk in any of my 12.1 repos here, so it seems that
    it's an additional installation that's been done, which may have its own
    separate issues.

    Right now I'm unsure if zypper clean clears metadata, data, or both. In
    this case we need clear data.

    From the man page for zypper:

    clean (cc) [options] [alias|name|#|URI] ...
    Clean the local caches for all known or specified
    repositories. By default,
    only caches of downloaded packages are cleaned.

    -m, --metadata
    Clean repository metadata cache instead of package cache.

    -M, --raw-metadata
    Clean repository raw metadata cache instead of package
    cache.

    -a, --all
    Clean both repository metadata and package caches.


    So clean will clean the downloaded package cache. That /should/ be
    sufficient, but if it isn't, zypper clean -a would be.

    Ah, ok, I see.

    Then I have to be very careful not to ever use that command, because I have
    gigabytes of downloaded packages in the cache. I would have to manually
    delete only whatever package were bad.

    That command should ask for confirmation...

    Second option would be to set up a local repo. Since I have 6 openSUSE
    systems here, I built a local repo so the cache doesn't matter.

    > That command should ask for confirmation...


    Seems like a good candidate for a FATE or bugzilla report.
