then you have a bad install…no doubt about it…11.4 (and as far back
as 10.3, at least) is born with: right click on RPM. select something
(it used to be “Action” > “Install with YaST”; now it is different
wording, but same action)
did you do this http://tinyurl.com/2ebcf27 before install attempt?
if not, do it now…if you didn’t have a perfect install disk, you know
what they say: Garbage in, garbage out.

well, maybe ‘they’ changed it all away from YaST, but i kinda doubt it…

now you are talking a foreign language…i guess next you will tell me
you think the best way to install software is to download a file and
double left click on it…
to make progress you will need to move on…

why do you persist in trying doing it the way one might if running a
completely different operating system?
want to install a nvidia driver? look here:
there is zero need to get fancy, make faulty assumptions and murder your
system, and then have to backup and start over–if that is what you
wanna do, say so and will stop—and, i will ask you to also stop
posting questions that don’t make sense because you have done
something, or tried to do something that just won’t work.

you don’t wanna use BASH, i don’t care…but imho, this is not the best
distro, for folks with that requirement–i hear Ubuntu is an African
word meaning “I can neither set up Debian or spell terminel/shall.”
or, try Apple and you will get the benefit of a modern, secure, virus
free, dependable *nix-like but shell/terminal free interface…
the down side is: in either of those cases you will still need to learn
how to effectively administer the system…
