Thread: reopsitory for installing fann libraries

    Default reopsitory for installing fann libraries

    Hello,

    On an older installation of opensuse 12.2 I have a repository,
    home:beyerlelayground
    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_12.2/

    I used this to install the fann libraries. I tried to add this repository to an opensuse 12.3 install and I get a message that the URL cannot be found. I don't know if it doesn't exist anymore or if I am doing something wrong. I copied the repo name and URL by going into the older install, selecting the repo, and selecting edit. I copied the URL and tried to use it with add in the 12.3 install. I need to install the fann runtime and devel libraries, so I need to get this to work.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction with this?

    12.3 is dead most of it's repositories have been removed.
    afaik only http://ftp5.gwdg.de/pub/opensuse/ keeps copies of old files, the repo you are looking for can be found here
    http://ftp5.gwdg.de/pub/opensuse/rep...openSUSE_12.2/
    they have a 12.3 repo too
    http://ftp5.gwdg.de/pub/opensuse/rep...openSUSE_12.3/
    but for how long nobody knows, you're better off updating to 13.2 or evergreen aka 13.1

    Thanks, that worked just fine. I did some searching but I was not able to find a list of repositories that might contain a specific application. Searches mostly returned rpm files. I always find rpm lists confusing and difficult to figue out the exact rpm that is needed from the dozens to hundreds of files returned from the search. Is there a standard way to find the name and url of repositories that contain specific applications. The opensuse downloads page had a list of repositories, but the list seems to be organized by application. Fann wasn't on the list, yet a repository exists. It would be nice to know the best way to find such things.

    I will upgrade to 13 at some point. I tend to not upgrade unless I have to because there always seem to be compatibility issues. As long as it works, I tend to leave it alone. Not sure that's the best approach but I have tended in that direction for a while. I gave up on Ubuntu partly for that reason.

    Have you tried
    https://software.opensuse.org/search
    that search engine returns not only rpm files but a list of extra repositories, it also alows you to add extra repo's to your system for yast/zypper search and install.
    that search returns a fann package on an extra repo those repositories are not unstable
    https://software.opensuse.org/package/fann

    but you should note most 12.x repository might be removed soon
