    Well how about installing the nodejs package?

    vega:~ # zypper info nodejs
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    Information for package nodejs:
    Repository: update
    Name: nodejs
    Version: 0.10.5-3.4.1
    Arch: x86_64
    Vendor: openSUSE
    Installed: Yes
    Status: up-to-date
    Installed Size: 10.5 MiB
    Summary: Evented I/O for V8 JavaScript
    Provides an easy way to build scalable network programs
    vega:~ # rpm -qf /usr/bin/npm
    Ships with 13.2.

    The minimal package that needed to be removed in your stackoverflow post is just to prevent certain files from being installed in a "minimal just enough" system, you can safely uninstall / remove it.

    Default is old. I installed nodejs the other day from

    so should be the same. "npm" is in there.

    "nodejs-devel-0.12.0-65.1.x86_64 requires python" so I had python installed and did not get errors.

    "Development/Languages/Python" in Yasts RPM Groups should let you tick/install "python" and "python3" (now you are there)?

    It is nodejs-devel which require python, version 2.6 or 2.7, but you even need that one? Might not.

    When lack of python is fixed you can skip openSUSE repos and install very latest version from - I did but then found the almost as new from devel repo. Easier and I only need it for few small things, not development or anything.
