    It's an incredible bad idea.

    If you are still running 13.2, you should upgrade your entire system to Tumbleweed _before_ adding any repositories. 13.2 repos have been taken down and randomly installing packages _will_ break your system!

    Was your answer a spam, or your dont know how to update OpenSuse 13.2 ?

    @Miuku:
    It cannot be updated to Tmbleweed for legacy reasons ... which means there is no way to add any repositories ...

    You can still add 13.2 repositories (oss, non-oss, update and update-non-oss) from a mirror and install software that way but unfortunately no new patches, updates or other software are available anymore and many of the build service repositories have been taken down permanently.

    If you add Tumbleweed repositories to your existing 13.2, you will end up with a broken system sooner or later as the software for it requires new libraries, kernel etc.

    Is there is an official tumbleweed i586 package list? How is the policy regarding tumbleweed i586 compatibility, i.e. which gcc versions, etc., etc. ?

    There were times, where tumbleweed didnt support 32bit, for some time it reintroduced it again (appart the question, why would opensuse discontinue 32bt support with so many systems there having only this architecture)...

    Tumbleweed has always had 32-bit (i586) support, they were close to dropping support for it already but managed to scrape it back together.

    Because Tumbleweed is a rolling distribution, it will constantly receive new versions of software - not so long ago they went from GCC6 to GCC7 and had to rebuild everything.

    Simply put; there aren't enough people on 32-bit systems to warrant it, at least not on the development team or people willing to contribute. I personally haven't had a 32-bit system since around 2003-2004 when I got my first AMD64.

    In short; it takes time, effort and people to make the 32-bit version work and there aren't those willing to do it. That's all there is to it.

    I understand about the shortage of people.

    How about a list with supported i586 packages? Is there any official statement about the min. GCC version supported (i.e. what are we support to successfully build) ?

    Tumbleweed offers a 32bit system. You don't have to take bits of it piecemeal. As already mentioned, sooner or later that will break your system.
    If you want 32 bit, upgrade to 32 bit tumbleweed completely.

    Besides 13.2 has been out of support for some time now.
