Please add Psensor to official openSUSE packages

Please add Psensor to official openSUSE packages. There’s already a number of people who have created unofficial ones at the below URL, but that’s risky.
https://software.opensuse.org/package/psensor

Then please contact the packager(s) to have it added. You will not see it in 42.3 anymore though.

Hi
Risky? I’ve updated my build to pull the latest git version direct (no
user interaction with source…) as well as the latest release build
targets.

I have zero interest in pushing any further (mainly because of the
headaches likely to go through for libXNVCtrl into the distribution),
suggest you ask some of the other builders on OBS if they are
interested…

Sorry if I offended you. I have read in Manjaro’s wiki that installing AUR from Arch is risky because then Manjaro might add that same package, leading to reference problems (Manjaro even goes so far as to say that no support will be forthcoming for those that do). And Debian warns against installing packages via .deb files for the same reason, even though many people do exactly that in Debian, Devuan, Ubuntu, and spins thereof. I assumed that things were the same here. If I knew the developers, I would know if I could trust them, but then again, the fact that there are multiple versions makes me wonder why.

Hi
No offense taken :wink: AFAIK, all the other psensors packages are links or copies of my original spec file etc… one thing about OBS you can copy (or link) from any project to your home project…

You also have the ability to examine the complete sources of the package on OBS, download, check etc, verify the source if your not sure, so it’s all open to you scrutiny and if find something that makes you go hmmm, say something :slight_smile:
