How to install package in terminal ?

what command involve install package?

ex. I want install packages.DU.gz , flashplayer10.tar.gz

Thank you very much.

Tell us why you want to install this way.
What version of SUSE are you using?

DU? do you mean as in du (disk use)?

You can use this command “zypper in package name” to install packages that way will help you to search any packages from your repositories and then install it in terminal, if you still attempt to install tar.gz file, you can also use the following command to complete installation…

**# tar -zxvf xxx.tar.gz and then


make install**

I use suse 11.1 .

Download failed:
Download (curl) error for ‘’:
Error code: Connection failed
Error message: Couldn’t resolve host ‘’

and I try add in repositories and it can’t add repositories.

I want to try install packages.DU.gz in terminal

Post the terminal output of

zypper lr -d

zypper install xxx.tar.gz → it correct?


Tell us what you want to install and post result of

zypper lr -d

If you are going to install a package from one of repos:

  1. First of all make sure your repos are auto-refreshed
    zypper mr -r -a (this enables auto-refresh for all repos)
  2. Search for your package
    zypper se <package_name>
  3. If zypper found the package try:
    zypper in <actual_package_name>

Download failed:
Download (curl) error for ‘’:
Error code: Connection failed
Error message: Couldn’t resolve host ‘’

What packages.DU.gz ???

if I open software management it show download failed away.

I try add repositories

Protocol - http (or ftp)
Server name -
Directories - distribution/11.1/repo/non-oss/suse/setup /descr/

Looks like the machine is not connected to the internet. I already checked a couple of things on another post about this. I get these errors if I unplug my networkcable and try to add a repo.
To get any further we need the output asked for by Caf.

This is already the third post on this matter. Please take the answers for serious, let us help you through this. We cannot if you wreck your system before. From what it looks like you’re network is not working. Fastest now would be to plug in a networkcable, then try to add a repo and see if errors persist.
