There are a number of linux distributions.

In general they have primary repositories which are setup for every installation of the operating system and they have special purpose repositories which require specific setup.

Repository Setup


For current openSUSE 11.4 and 12.1 users it is necessary to have the following repositories configured:

  • security
  • devel:languages:perl
  • devel:languages:python

This is most easily done from the command line via (assumes openSUSE 12.1):

sudo zypper ar -f security
sudo zypper ar -f perl
sudo zypper ar -f python

zypper lr               # used to verify you have the repos installed
