Opensuse 12.1 Repository for /devel:languages:perl

Hello;

It seems there the following repository has been changed because it is no more reachable:

(devel:languages:perl_12.1) http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/devel:languages:perl/openSUSE_12.1
so what is the alternative for it? The opensuse version is 12.1

From the other side, when the repositories are changed, how (from where) I can know the updated path?

Regards
Bilal

12.1 has reached EOL.Hence you can get official repos only. Other repos
wouldnot be available. It is advisable to install latest version of
openSUSE which is 12.3

old repos :- http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Mirrors#EOL_mirrors
Lifetime:- https://en.opensuse.org/Lifetime


GNOME 3.6.2
openSUSE Release 12.3 (Dartmouth) 64-bit
Kernel Linux 3.7.10-1.16-desktop

But those mirrors only contain the end-of-life distributions.
They don’t contain any OBS repos (like [noparse]devel:languages:perl[/noparse]) for those unsupported distribution versions.

So your only choices are to upgrade to a newer version as vazhavandan advised, or create an account on OBS, branch those packages you need, and let them build for 12.1. :wink:
Or maybe even somebody else still builds those packages you need for 12.1, have a look at http://software.opensuse.org/

I doubt OBS will offer 12.1 as a “target” :frowning:


GNOME 3.6.2
openSUSE Release 12.3 (Dartmouth) 64-bit
Kernel Linux 3.7.10-1.16-desktop

It still does:

Hi
They exist, but you can’t add them…

Yes, you’re right.
I should have tried before posting, but I didn’t want to add it, so…

But there still are some 12.1 repos left (from people who declined the delete request :wink: )
One of them might contain the wanted package(s).

Although I do think that an upgrade would be the better choice anyway.

All we need to is read the documentation here:-

Since eventually package repositories for discontinued releases are be
removed from download servers as well as the build target list of the
Build Service it will be increasingly difficult to install new software
on such distributions.

Well, the only choices except the one that will keep working! Download
the modules from CPAN instead of the distro repositories. :slight_smile:
