Classic Library Finder

Hello everyone, i was wondering on how to use the classic “search for packages”.

When i looked for example say “chromium”, a list would show the different versions, users repositories, and the link to those repos.

Can i get the classic one back or is it any way of making the new one better?
Actually the main thing is, getting the repository address so i can add it thought YaST

Thanks

It has seem to have lost some functionality. Not a direct answer but the one-click install will add all of the needed repos to your system by default. Maybe they decided it would be redundant to have that and a link to the repository as well.

They should bring the link to the repository back!!

Now its even worse, you cant even find user-made packages!!!

Any alternatives on finding packages made by users?

Thanks

I still see them. Did you see the “Show other versions” link below the button?

Its strange, for example, try looking for “wine”.
It wont show any “user-made” versions of the package.

Oh, and here is the feature request if anyone wants to sign it !

A link would be useful.

Im sorry hehe

The crazy thing about searching for Wine now is that it appears in the initial list of results not as “Wine” but as “Browse C:\ Drive.” But if you click on that, then click on “Show other versions,” then click on “Show unstable packages,” then click away the warning about the unstable packages, you will eventually get a list that includes user-made versions.

If the goal of the redesign was to make it as difficult as possible to find anything, they’ve done a good job of it.

I found an alternative place to search the OBS: https://build.opensuse.org/project/list_public

It’s a bare-bones interface, but a search for “Wine” turned up a lot more results, and none of them were nonsensical.

Thats is partly useful, as it doesent show the versions of the packages or libraries.

Thanks though!

Up!

As I said, you have to announce it in the announcements forum.
