    Default lyx 1.6 support


    hey

    im really thinking about going over to opensuse 11 64 bit (i have a
    machine with 4 gb ram) but one thing is holding me back. Yes i am new to
    linux, now that is settled. The Word Processor Lyx latest version 1.6 is
    not in the package yast2, only 1.5.6 (something) and i have a large
    report already partly written in the latest lyx version. Tried
    downloading the RPM package from lyx website but get a lot of
    "dependencies required" which yast2 cant find and neither can i in the
    search function in package manager.
    Any ideas on what to do or how long i have to wait for it to be tested
    and supported via yast?

    It will be never available for 11.0 like a official update. But it is
    available in KDE:Backports OBS repo.

    I could install
    ftp://ftp.lyx.org/pub/lyx/bin/1.6.0/...v2009.i586.rpm without
    problems on my 11.0, so I guess that your dependency problems come from
    the mismatched architecture (x86_64 vs i586).
    But anyway, 1.6.0 is even packaged in the build service: 'Webpin'
    (http://tinyurl.com/5ntkzs)
    For your bookmarks: 'Webpin' (http://packages.opensuse-community.org/)

    In LyX 1.5.4 under the "preferences" menu item (I have the Italian one
    so I don't know exactly the main menu item, it should be "Tools") you
    can define the pdf converter you like to use

    You will already have everything you need to run LyX, whatever version.
    Just download it and go. (You can forget all your Windows problems).
