    Default Help please with Perl Module not in openSUSE repo site

    I want to install a Perl module
    Code:
    Compress::Zlib
    but cannot find it in openSUSE repo site.
    It is on CPAN but I am reluctant to download and install from there in case it is incompatible with my Perl library all of which has come from repo.
    Please could somebody advise.

    Hi
    I would guess it's been disabled as no one is maintaining by the looks...
    https://build.opensuse.org/package/s...-Compress-Zlib

    Else ping the last user in the changes and ask if can update and re-enable;
    https://build.opensuse.org/package/v...anges?expand=1

    A package which was created Dec 26 2014 exists in the Perl repo.

    Add the Perl repo with the following command which also does a refresh. You should then be able to search and install your compress-zlib

    Add the Perl repo and system refresh for 13.2
    Code:
    zypper ar http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/devel:/languages:/perl/openSUSE_13.2/ Perl:_extensions && zypper ref

    Hi
    There is only perl-Compress-Raw-Zlib, not the plain Compress-Zlib....

    I guess it should be installed and tested to see if it works.

    I don't know if the file is actively maintained anyway... If version numbers are identical to CentOS 6, it looks like their distributed version is nearly identical to the OBS Kulow build you referenced, suggesting no significant changes since approx 4 yrs ago.

    If no openSUSE RPM exists, the CentOS RPM can be tried.

    Hi Tsu and Malcolm and many thanks. Tried to install and found my existing installation "obsoletes" this module. Not sure why this might be. Will experiment a bit and call for help if I get stuck.
