OpenSUSE: Webpin - Finding And Installing Applications Easily

Filed under
Software

One of the problems many SUSE/openSUSE users have is locating software. Package management eases installation of software, but locating packages which are not in the official repositories may be problematic. openSUSE’s main repository is fairly large with approximately 22,000 officially supported packages. However there are still many packages that openSUSE cannot package for logistical or legal reasons. Most software can be found in one of many package repositories, but finding the repository containing the package containing what you are after may be a pain when you don’t know where to look.

If you’re looking for a search engine for finding openSUSE RPMs, you can use Webpin. Webpin will automatically register new repositories and use libzypp for dependency resolution, leaving you with very little to do, while the packages are downloaded and installed quickly and transparently.

Linux 4.2 is out

So judging by how little happened this week, it wouldn't have been a mistake to release 4.2 last week after all, but hey, there's certainly a few fixes here, and it's not like delaying 4.2 for a week should have caused any problems either. So here it is, and the merge window for 4.3 is now open. I already have a few pending early pull requests, but as usual I'll start processing them tomorrow and give the release some time to actually sit. The shortlog from rc8 is tiny, and appended. The patch is pretty tiny too. Go get it, Linus Read more
