Thread: Can't find newly installed package

  1. #1

    Default Can't find newly installed package

    Thanks to the generous help of forum members I've been able to install the dhcp server using zypper.
    Code:
    RoutFire:/usr/share/doc/packages # zypper info dhcp-server
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    
    
    Information for package dhcp-server:
    ------------------------------------
    Repository     : openSUSE-Leap-15.0-Oss  
    Name           : dhcp-server             
    Version        : 4.3.5-lp150.4.1         
    Arch           : x86_64                  
    Vendor         : openSUSE                
    Installed Size : 2.3 MiB                 
    Installed      : Yes                     
    Status         : up-to-date              
    Source package : dhcp-4.3.5-lp150.4.1.src
    Summary        : ISC DHCP Server         
    Description    :                         
        This package contains the ISC DHCP server.
    
        Please read the documentation in /usr/share/doc/packages/dhcp-server
        regarding configuration of the DHCP server.
    However, when I try to configure it:
    Code:
    RoutFire:/usr/share/doc/packages # yast2 dhcp-server
    No such client module dhcp-server
    RoutFire:/usr/share/doc/packages #
    Why can't YaST find it? Additionally, I went to the doc/packages directory and no documentation.
    Thanks for any help sorting this out.

    Hi
    So that's the server, but did you install the supporting YaST package called yast2-dhcp-server?

    From a console or terminal window you can still invoke
    Code:
    su -c yast
    and use the ncurses interface. If you don't see the module, install it, rerun yast and it will show up.

    No, I had not installed it. I was unaware of it. I've just done so and I've just finished setting up the DHCP server. Thank you.
