I’ve recently installed OpenSUSE for the first time and trying to get everything working. Right now, I’m trying to install an Nvidia driver with a filename that looks like this:
When I double-click, I get the following:
> There is no specialized application for files of the type shell script (application/x-shellscript).
The file can be opened in a more generic application as file type plain text document (text/plain), or you can try to install a specialized application for file type shell script (application/x-shellscript).
Do you want to try to install a specialized application?
If I click “Yes”, I get this:
> The software to install could not be found in the currently enabled software repositories.It may be located in other repositories.
See http://help.opensuse.org/ksuseinstall for details.
Do you want to configure your repositories?
…and now I’m stymied. Any suggestions? I read a similar post in which the problem was a Java file with a .sh extension (I think), but I’m not sure whether or not this is the same issue.
Some progress: I managed to get started with both the 1-click and via YaST, but both times I’m unable to download the driver. Just now I tried installing via Konsole, and this is what was returned:
Retrieving: nvidia-gfxG03-kmp-desktop-331.79_k3.11.6_4-27.1.x86_64.rpm …[error]
File ‘./x86_64/nvidia-gfxG03-kmp-desktop-331.79_k3.11.6_4-27.1.x86_64.rpm’ not found on medium ‘http://download.nvidia.com/opensuse/13.1/’
Am I understanding this correctly, that the file being sought is not in fact present in the Nvidia repository? Or is something here my fault?
Please, when do not only show the (error) messages you get on the Konsole, but also what you did: the command. How can we check if you made an error when we can not see what you did? And copy/paste that please betwen CODE tags. You get CODE tags by clicking on the # button in the tool bar of the post editor.
Yes, the driver packages in the repo have been updated to 331.89 today, probably just when you tried to install them.
It could be of course that you have auto-refresh disabled for the nvidia repo, so YaST/zypper will not recognize automatically that there are newer packages (and the old ones are not there any more).
