you could have found out yourself faster, with equal or less effort, via
http://software.opensuse.org/121

Thanks phanisvara. I googled it but did not find it. One learns something

Rosegarden is usually available from one of the standard repos, also in Factory, and has even been available in Tumbleweed [11.4]. I was surprised it’s not in the 12.1 repos. Anyone know why not?

No idea, but I also found out that it is in the BuildService Education
repository.
Funny one is named rosegarden4 and the one in the multimedia repo is just
rosegarden.

i got an idea about these different versions via
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosegarden ; the package description says
exactly the same for both. i could only install the ~4 version, since
lilypond isn’t available for 12.1 yet. according to what i understand from
that wikipedia article, it (~4) got more features than the other one.

Thanks to you and -G- for replies. It would seem then that the absence in 12.1 is down to missing Lilypond as a dependency. I had searched oBS and seen the Education package and noted the one with “4” in the name, but it reminded me of the old Version 4 rosegarden package in openSUSE (10.x series?). The release numbering was confusing then as it didn’t include the “4”. IIRC it was a big step change and at some point demanded a real-time kernel. Later the “4” was dropped from the package name, as the release levels increased. The ~4 version would be older, since it probably didn’t have a working Lilypond interface.

On Tumbleweed [11.4] the last update I applied was “rosegarden-11.06-6.3”, although 11.11 is the latest release on Rosegarden’s website. That openSUSE package still has a rather antiquated description which says “This is a complete rewrite of the old 1.7.x series of rosegarden”, but the Change Log only goes back to 10.02 in 2009 which is much later than the introduction of version 4.

The history has become somewhat vague, so it’s best to refer to the actual release levels.

I should have also said that Education’s ~4 package has probably been compiled without the Lilypond dependency, as it is based on release 11.06 (the latest stable release for openSUSE).
