12.3 no app..yet

If i want to install a program in 12.3 that has no repo…yet, would it be better to use a factory or tumbleweed version?

Right now, tumbleweed and 12.3 are the same, so in theory it should work.

But you might mention which app it is. :slight_smile:

No, it would be better to wait, or go back to whatever you were using
before. :stuck_out_tongue:

Or make yourself that app you need :slight_smile:

O.K. youse guys how about a little consensus here on what’s right. I was afraid someone would tell me to wait. The app is amdovdrvctrl: software.opensuse.org: which allows you to change gpu and memory speeds. I have an Ausus card video card which is slightly overclocked by default and I like to restore it to reference Amd speeds.

No, because tumbleweed is empty at the moment. No packages :slight_smile:

Hi
Just ask the repo owner to add the 12.3 build target, else grab the src
rpm and build locally.

Too late.

I’m sure there will be a 12.3 repo eventually, but I used tumbleweed here already and it followed exactly the same process that it did in 12.2 including what the dependencies were. There were four extra files. I suppose there could be some version conflicts there but for now it’s working and I seem to be fine.

I tried building once a while back before I found it in the repos and failed.

Thanks for the replies.

AHHHHHH WHAT’S THAT SMOKE COMING OUT OF THE BACK OF MY COMPUTER!?!?!??!

Just a little joke.

Very little.

m-/ Of course, that’s what “no packages” means. Silly me. :wink:
