Thread: Problem: nothing provides

    Question Problem: nothing provides

    I did search for '' and '' and found no helpful threads. Unless I botched the search process.

    Here's is my problem:

    Problem: nothing provides needed by kernel-default-devel-4.16.2-2.1.ge881e16.x86_64
    I've been getting this error for a while, since kernel 4.15.X.

    Not sure what to do to resolve. For one am I searching correctly:

    # zypper -v wp
    Verbosity: 1
    Non-option program arguments: '' 
    Command 'what-provides' is replaced by 'search --provides --match-exact'.
    See 'help search' for all available options.

    # rpm -q --whatprovides
    no package provides
    l# rpm -q --whatprovides
    no package provides
    I would like to know if there is a better way to search this type of thing with zypper? Or rpm? (Or dnf for that matter.)

    So how to resolve this? Do I need another repository? Need to manually download a package and install? Am I using the wrong kernel repo to have most recent stable kernel version for Leap 42.3? Or do I just install the kernel-default-devel and not worry about it? Do developers need to correct this dependency to one that actually exists in repos? Or otherwise make some provision to provide this dependency? (Do I need to file a, gasp, bug report?)

    Default Re: Problem: nothing provides

    # zypper -v wp libcrypto
    also returns no matching items found. That can't be right...

    Hi and welcome to the Forum
    Correct, openSUSE 42.3 only has libopenssl1_0_0 (zypper se --file-list openSUSE Leap 15 has libopenssl1_1.

    You need to add the Kernel:tools repository as well if wanting to run the later kernels.

    zypper ar -f -g -n "repo-Kernel:Tools" openSUSE-Leap-42.3-Kernel:Tools

    Thumbs up Re: Problem: nothing provides

    Thanks for the reply Malcolm. I added the Kernel Tools repo and libopenssl1_1 is installing along with other updates.

    Just noticed I got a reply so need to check my notifications!
