Is there a openSUSE equivalent to the auto-apt program on debian.
YaST -> Software -> Software Management for the GUI and zypper for the
command line eg;
sudo zypper ref sudo zypper lu
See the man page for zypper for more…

Yes, this is simmilar to apt-get. However auto-apt is a tool for compiling from source, and will automaticly install dependencies as needed from a debian repository using apt-get.
To my knowledge there is no equivalent, … although from what I have read, auto-apt is not without problems, often installing a lot of useless “false” dependencies.
I have used auto-apt a couple times, and was hoping I could find an equivelent for openSUSE. Despite the ocasional added dependency, it made installing from source a lot easier.
Well I’m not quite sure what you’re after but…
source-install (si) <name> ... Install specified source packages and their build dependencies. This command will try to find the newest available versions of the source packages and use rpm -i to install them and the packages that are required to build the source package. Note that the source packages must be available in repositories you are using. You can check whether a repository contains any source packages using the following command: $ zypper search -t srcpackage -r <alias|#|URI> -d, --build-deps-only Install only build dependencies of specified packages. -D, --no-build-deps Don't install build dependencies. -r, --repo <alias|#|URI> Work only with the repository specified by the alias, number or URI. This option can be used multiple times. Examples: Install build dependencies of dbus-1 source package: $ zypper si -D dbus-1
I am looking for a program that will either:
a). Install all dependencies of a source file
b). Install the source file and dependencies
Without the source package being in a repository.
zypper -d <source> seems like it will work, if this is the correct way to use the command.
