Thread: Safe to use electronics repo to install KiCad 5?

  1. #1

    Default Safe to use electronics repo to install KiCad 5?

    Hi,

    is it safe, to use https://build.opensuse.org/project/show/electronics to install KiCad 5 in Leap 15?
    Will KiCad 5 make it to the official repo any time soon?

    Thanks.

    yes it is safe that is an official community repository
    the LEAP 15.0 packages are finalized so only KiCad 4 will be shipped in the main repo it has to do with the way LEAP packages are maintained during 15.0's lifetime
    you can get 5 from the electronics repo just do
    Code:
    zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/electronics/openSUSE_Leap_15.0/electronics.repo
    zypper in kicad-5.0.0
    afaik only web browsers get upgraded in the main repo all other packages only get security stability and bug fixes no upgrades

    Don't forget to give the repository a name when you add it

    not needed when you use a repo file not a repo url
    Code:
    zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/electronics/openSUSE_Leap_15.0/electronics.repo
    if you check
    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...ectronics.repo
    you can see it has a repo name already
    [electronics]
    name=Electronics stuff and development (openSUSE_Leap_15.0)
    type=rpm-md
    baseurl=http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/electronics/openSUSE_Leap_15.0/
    gpgcheck=1
    gpgkey=http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/electronics/openSUSE_Leap_15.0/repodata/repomd.xml.key
    enabled=1

    Thanks all.

    I noticed that with the name as well after installing. I changed it to "electronics" because *Electronics stuff and development (openSUSE_Leap_15.0)" seemed a bit too long for me

    That's not the name, it's the alias. Use
    Code:
    zypper ar -f -n NAME REPOURL ALIAS
