Zonker, you rock, brother. Joe ‘Zonker’ Brockmeier has provided us with a nice explanation of enhancing openSUSE 11.2. He talks about adding repositories and packages. It’s a little more user-friendly to new users than my quick summary: OpenSUSE Linux: Quick Zypper Tutorial.

Aimed at new users, he provides a nice detailed article on repositories, packages, and how to use zypper to manage them from the command-line.

Excerpt:

“So you’ve got that shiny new openSUSE 11.2 system up and running. Now what? The default repositories have plenty of software, but there’s much more for openSUSE in community and semi-official repositories that you might find useful.

“openSUSE comes with an enormous amount of software in the official repositories. But, sometimes you just need something that isn’t in the default release. Either because the package isn’t offered through the official repos, or because you want to track software that’s ahead of the current release.”
