Thread: How to enable yum

    Question How to enable yum

    Hi everyone ,
    anyone can fix this :

    There are no enabled repos.
    Run "yum repolist all" to see the repos you have.
    You can enable repos with yum-config-manager --enable <repo>

    On openSUSE you should use YaST and zypper, not yum.
    There you should have the main repos preconfigured already.
    For how to use zypper, see here f.e.: http://en.opensuse.org/SDBypper_usage

    If you do insist on using yum, I suppose you have to add those repos there first, as the message indicates, apparently with "yum-config-manager --enable <repo>".
    But I cannot help you there, as I never have used yum.

    I got the felling (and I could be wrong) that the OP was not asking for help, but instead trying to provide a tip about yum.... in which case they posted in the wrong forum anyway.

    After reading it again, I think you are right.

    Well, when I first read it, I understood the OP is getting that message when trying to run yum, and is asking for how to fix that...

    Edit: OTOH, I now think this was really a question actually.
    Look at the thread icon next to the subject.

    The OP also has another thread talking about using yum and seems impervious to the suggestions that yum is not really used in openSUSE and that we use zypper or Yast instead..

    It would appear that on Jul 24, gogalthorp did say:

    Ah, is that how it is? As multi-booter who much prefers command based {text
    interface} package management programs over the GUI versions, I can say that
    the difference in syntax between them can be daunting. For example: a Debian
    refugee used to refreshing his repos with "apt-get update" might find the
    results of typing "zypper update" somewhat disturbing...

    It's been a long time since I used yum, but as I recall I used to like it.

    Perhaps it would help the OP to adjust if he could easily compare the
    differences (and similarities) in the syntax of yum vs zypper commands.

    To the OP: I hope you find the above comparison tool useful. But if your going
    to run Opensuse, your going to need to use the supported tools. Try zypper, it
    really does do a good job...

    Now if only I could get zypper working on my Debian based "anitX" installation,
    I'd be a happy man... {:wry grin:}

    There is nothing wrong with yum and you can install it for openSUSE. It does not come as default.. But openSUSE is based on zypper and Yast so it is not directly supported and may or may not work as expected in the openSUSE environment. Also there are far fewer people here that know the tool at all.
