I am rather new to openSuse, and not sure I am doing right things and using right Linux words.
I freshly installed without any issues 13.2 with Gnome (using GTK3) on my laptop today, very easy… replacing my windows 7 enthusiastically.
Currently I am stuck in trying to install GTK2, as this - I believe - is used by BOINC (manager), which does not install properly by Yast/Add softw.
I was using the homepage opensue.org, stumbled over the packet search and found the hyperlink to ‘direct install’ via YaST 1-Click-Installation
(I am using german system, so not sure if this is correct translation)
Exception message here is - well, how to copy selected text from xterm / view ed file?!?
It has error in retrieving the repository type from http://www.opensuse.org/repositories/openSUSE:/13.2:/Ports/extra (other repos were added successfully)
zypp throws exception in YaST2 log, that it cannot retrieve file repodata/repomd.xml
As far as I figured out: GTK2 and 3 can be installed concurrently without issues; and anyhow, it is in the official openSUSE add. packages?!? Correct?
I believe the original issue with officially BOINC install problems come form the GTK 2/3 mixture, as I am using Gnome. Anybody else having similar (solved) issues?
-> Anybody successfully running BOINC (other GTK2 apps) under Gnome?
Thx and regards
