Thread: Palemoon

  1. #1

    Default Palemoon

    Hi all.
    I was offered an OpenSuse installation USB key and since I broke my easy2boot multi-installation key when I wanted to install a Linux on a provisory partition (waiting for my main disk) I decided to try OpenSuse.
    So far so good, but I can't find a way to install palemoon on it?
    On debian or ubuntu the external repository was of the form http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/stevenpusser something so I'm a bit surprised to not find anything for OpenSuse...
    Is there a way to install it then?
    I found this page https://linuxg.net/tag/how-to-instal...n-on-opensuse/ but it's four years old.
    I wasn't able to find the website of the kind Steven Pusser either so I can't ask him directly.

    Thanks!

    (oh, and I tagged it Leap 15.1 because I had to choose something and I intend to upgrade to it once I understand how, but I'm on 42.3 right now)

    I finally upgraded to 15.1 but still can't find Newmoon.
    What is this Network Repository?

    Once you've upgraded from 42.3, if you save https://download.opensuse.org/reposi...1/network.repo or https://download.opensuse.org/reposi...USE_Leap_15.0/ (as appropriate to your release) to /etc/zypp/repos.d/ and refresh repos zypper and yast will be able find and install Newmoon. For out-of-support 42.3 the network repo has been removed.

    Thanks.
    But I'm not sure I get these repo things...
    I should just copy the content
    Code:
    [network]
    name=Networking services and related tools (openSUSE_Leap_15.1)
    type=rpm-md
    baseurl=http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/network/openSUSE_Leap_15.1/
    gpgcheck=1
    gpgkey=http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/network/openSUSE_Leap_15.1/repodata/repomd.xml.key
    enabled=1
    in vim, save it (with what name?) in the folder /etc/zypper/repos.d and then zypper update I guess, after what I'll be able to find palemoon with zypper install newmoon ?

    But what is this Network repository?
    There are lots of package I can't find either (freeplane, android-tools,...), are they in similar specific repositories?
    How does that work (and why)?

    Any name you please, as longs as it ends with .repo. I suggest network.repo, the name of the downloaded file, unless you can think of something to better help you recognize why you have it. I use Network.repo.

    Thanks, it worked!
    But I still don't understand what I've done to make it work...

    Is there some documentation about these repos?
    I know what's a repository but don't understand how OpenSuse's are organized (nor why).
    Coming from Debian I'm used to having only main restricted and non-free, and maybe Ubuntu's PPA (using which is strongly advised against in Debian)...
