    Default How to install a source package

    Hi,

    This must be a silly question.

    Where do I click in the yast package manager to install the source package
    of a package?

    One package. I have seen how to install ALL sources packages, that's not it.

    Yes, the source repo is active.


    I have tried viewing by repo, repo source, then search - finds nothing.
    All: nothing.

    This is done with "zypper si <pkgname>", but sometimes the src package
    name can differ from the binary package name (some src packages create
    more than one binary).

    Which do you want to install?

    I just checked now in yast if I can find out. I thought to remember from
    years ago that there was a checkbox for the packages to install the
    corresponding source when you looked at the listed packages, that seems
    to be gone.

    suspend.

    I want to look at the source of s2disk to see if it can be made to print
    debugging messages, because it crashes randomly on my system.

    Why did it install all that extra packages, I wonder?

    Now the problem is how to edit the sources. It has installed
    "/usr/src/packages/SOURCES/suspend-0.8.20100129.tar.bz2" and a lot of
    diffs. I would need to expand and apply those :-?

    Code:
    Software Management:
    install, in             Install packages.
    remove, rm              Remove packages.
    verify, ve              Verify integrity of package dependencies.
    source-install, si      Install source packages and their build
    dependencies.
    install-new-recommends, inr
    Install newly added packages recommended
    by installed packages.
    As you can see when you install a source package it will also installs
    the other packages needed to build the source.

    Code:
    tar xjvf [name of tar file]
    will extract the contents of the tar file so you can look at the files.

    You can avoid to install the build dependencies by adding option -D to
    the si.
    I just never do that myself since if I need the source I also need to be
    able to build/debug, so I need all dependencies anyway and did not take
    that option into account.

    Ok.

    I'll ask about how to apply the patches, edit those sources and compile the
    edited sources correctly in another thread. Should be via rpmbuild, I guess.

    Mind you i am not sure, but: when the patches are installed they are
    incorporated into the source files at that time.

    You can lookup where the sources are installed with yast by going to the
    package and looking at the (bottom) files tab.

    Personally, i like making a link from my directory tree to the source
    branch i want to work on before getting busy with it.
