just installed tumbleweed about a week ago, and it was missing coreutils-doc, so I had no man pages for some pretty basic stuff…ls, ln, rm, dircolors, etc. I found the solution here on the forums, but now I’m wondering what else is missing from TW (which I otherwise am really enjoying.)
I have never run into that problem.
Check the recommended packages. You can do that with
Yast → Software Management → View → Package Classification
Anything important that does not fit on the installer DVD will probably show up as a recommended packages.
Or you can try:
to install all of them in one shot.
bor@tw:~> zypper se -t pattern -x documentation
the pattern Documentation was not installed, though Help and Support Documentation was.
The package patterns-base-documentation was not installed. Six packages listed under recommended were missing, altogether.
Breeze 5 wallpapers
h264 codec for Mozilla
I’ve installed them now via zypper inr–which brought not the six that “recommended packages” listed but 55 in total! Lots unnecessary, to be sure, but I should be good now.
