Hi and welcome to the Forum
It a lot of cases, just changing dev to devel will work, but better to use zypper se to see the full development package name, or maybe a portion, eg zypper se ncurses. Some development packages don’t have the lib portion in the name either.
What is the package name, maybe what your after is already built as an rpm on the openSUSE Build Service, perhaps in a development repository?
Hi, thank you for your greetings and for your suggestion!
I’m still struggling to find the packages using zypper se, because while I found packages with similar names, I’m not sure if I have they’re equivalent to what I need.
My real problem is an error while trying to install pycurl for a work project. After some googling, I found out that I am missing some packages and in the project install instructions, they told me to install the packages that are listed below:
Thank you all for the continued support! I’m learning a lot and growing to love this Distro. I was able to make some progress and while I still haven’t gotten where I wanted, at least I’m getting a different error
Should I make a new post with my new-found errors, or is this a good place to continue?
The S column means “status”. You can check it in the zypper’s man page:
**search **(**se**) [options] [querystring|capability]...
Search for packages matching any of the given search strings. *** **and **? **wildcard characters can be used within search strings. If the search string is enclosed in **/ **(e.g. **/^k.*e$/**) it’s interpreted as a regularexpression. See the **install **command
for details about how to specify a capability.
Results of the search are printed in a table with columns **S**tatus, **Name**, **Summary **and **Type **of package.
In the detailed view (**se -s**) all available instances of matching packages are shown; each version in each repository on a separate line, with columns **S**tatus, **Name**, **Type**, **Version**, **Arch**itecture and **Repository**. For installed packages **Repository**
shows either a repository that provides exactly the installed version of the package, or, if the exact version is not provided by any known repo, **(System Packages) **(or **@System**). Those installed packages not provided by any repo are often denoted
as being unwanted, orphaned or dropped.
The **S**tatus column can contain the following values:
installed by user request
installed automatically (by the resolver, see section **Automatically installed packages**)
a different version is installed
neither of the above cases
a patch in **needed **state
is shown in the 2nd column if the item is locked (see section **Package Locks Management**)
is shown in the 2nd column if the item is part of a PTF (A program temporary fix which must be explicitly selected and will otherwise not be considered in dependency resolution).
is shown in the 2nd column if the item has been retracted (see **patch **in section **Package Types**)
The **v **status is only shown if the version or the repository matters (see **--details **or **--repo**), and the installed instance differs from the one listed in version or repository.
