Thread: Installing Zoom with dependencies

  1. #11

    Question Re: Installing Zoom with dependencies

    Hi everyone,
    I'm new to OpenSUSE and am learning the ways.

    I'm asking people who have installed Zoom using this method and use it frequently, how are we notified when Zoom can be updated, and how do you update ?
    I have looked everywhere, I couldn't find a repository to add so YaST can take care of this.

    Thank you!

    What is "this method", I see no method mentioned.

    Sorry, I meant the method advised on this thread, meaning installing manually the RMP from the official website using:
    Code:
    zypper in https://zoom.us/client/latest/zoom_openSUSE_x86_64.rpm
    I wonder how the application notifies for updates and update, when we install it with this method (if I understand right, YaST won't be able to do it as it has no specific repo to check for updates).

    Sorry, I did not see the earlier posts as yours is at the top of a new page.. Also this thread is already rather old and about Leap 15.2 (when you are really on 15.2, please upgrade to 15.3).

    It would have been better when you had started a new thread. That will show up as new thread and thus draw the attention of people scanning for new threads to help with.

    But you are correct. Installing just an RPM will never inform you about newer versions in the way it is done for repository installed packages.

    I have also Zoom on one of the systems here and I it even survived an upgrade from 15.2 > 15.3 on that system. I do not plan do try and find out if there is a newer version as long as it "works".

    The version I have installed here seems to be 5.8.6.739_openSUSE-1. You can of course from time to time check if there is a newer version. Or simply, after a few months, remove the present package and install fresh (or maybe a forced installation is a faster way to do that).

    OK, thank you very much!
    I might go for the flatpak solution then.

    It's true that I haven't given much details, sorry for that. I'm planning to use OpenSUSE Tumbleweed. Coming from Debian testing, it's the distribution that appealed me the most.
