10.2 repository archive

I know 10.2 support ended last Nov, but I have an old machine that I want to update some libs, but don’t really feel like upgrading the whole system. Are the 10.2 repositories archived anywhere? Any help or links would be greatly appreciated.

No, because you cannot do things by halves; you either need to keep the repos up-to-date or not at all. Otherwise you would get inconsistencies which could cause more trouble than they are worth.

I understand, although a Nov09 snapshot of the 10.2 repository would still be nice for tasks such as:

HP Linux Imaging and Printing

Guess I’ll do the one lib at a time method :frowning:

You might find what you want here:
http://ftp5.gwdg.de/pub/linux/suse/opensuse/discontinued/

They have both isos and updates; not sure if it is complete.

but without guarantee :wink:

Hello,

I need to install Google Chrome browser on openSUSE 10.2. Can you tell me how this can be done? Upgrading openSUSE to higher version is not possible.

you can try to go to google and download the chrome for linux package
and follow the instructions…

but, i doubt it will work so easily…i tried to add it to my 10.3 and
wasn’t able to figure out how to get it to work…i keep getting a
broken pipe error…well, i only tried about five minutes…i have
these browsers working: Firefox, Opera, Konqueror, Lynx, Linx and IE…

having decided i could “get by” with only six browsers i didn’t waste
a lot of time on chrome…

what can chrome do for you that what does work in 10.2 can’t?

Be it ever so humble, there is no place like 127.0.0.1.

It’s not a question what other browsers can’t do, it’s a matter of corporate policy to use Chrome or Chromium as an interface for intranet application.

Can you tell me how you installed Firefox 3.6 on openSUSE 10.2?

are you using SUSE Enterprise Linux Desktop version 10 SP2 or are you
using openSUSE 10.2?

i ask because if you are using the SUSE Enterprise version you need to
ask over where that is supported in forums.novell.com (it is
commercial software and support IS available over there…for a price
(i donn’t know the price)…

but, if you are running openSUSE 10.2 then i have no idea how to put
Chrome on it because 10.2 has not been supported for about two years…

i have great doubts that it has all the libraries needed for
Chrome…and, i have no idea if you can get the updated libs from
elsewhere and they will work…

i will say this again: i tried to add Chrome to openSUSE 10.3 a few
months back and was UNABLE…and, my experience level on Linux is
such that i didn’t ask anyone how to install Chrome (or Firefox)…i
just followed the directions given on the google site…

i’d GUESS, if you can’t load a modern supported system on your
corporate policy guided machine you need to find a local geek who
KNOWS how to, and for a fee will help you keep the root kits off the
one which has had no security updates in a couple of years…and,
then worry about how to put a newer browser than the one which came
with 10.2

ymmv
