openSUSE 11 repository updates

openSUSE 11 repository updates

Finally openSUSE 11 has been released and I decided to upgrade my 10.3 system to it.

Some minor annoyances and broken installation later, my system was upgraded. Way less problematic upgrade than in earlier versions…

In order to enjoy my software repository goodness I had to update a couple of packages to compile for 11.0.

Add it with zypper like this:

# zypper ar

Some gems are now available for 11.0:

evolution-statusicon (A small notification icon to show/hide evolution)

evolution-tnef-attachments (Interpret those winmail.dat attachements Outlook is sending)

gstreamer010-pitfdll (Play your WMV goodness in gstreamer using win32 .dll codecs)

sphinx (An extremely powerful search engine nicely integrated with MySQL)

Still some other packages don’t compile and I’ll look into fixing it one by one.

    you can install any of the above without internet, they include all the dependencies, just unzip the both files into a folder named MMP2008 and create a repository from that folder as a simple rpm folder in yast, then make a search in the yast installer with the name of the program and check it to install it, this is very important if you don`t have internet at home, and besides, by default Open Suse doesn`t include several codecs due to license matters.

    I created a blog about the MMP 2008 where you can download the pack:
