6 Configure Online Software Repositories

Now we configure the online software repositories that our OpenSUSE 11.2 system will use to install further software. Go to Computer > YaST:

You will have to type in the root password:

In YaST, select Software Repositories:

The Configured Software Repositories window opens. Click on the Add button:

Select Community Repositories:

You will get a list of predefined online repositories. Select them all to make sure your system can install all available OpenSUSE 11.2 packages if they are needed. Click on OK afterwards:

Now the lists of available packages are being downloaded from the repositories. It's possible that your system doesn't know the public keys of all repositories, so if you see a message like this, you can click on the Import button:

You might as well have to accept a few licenses:

Afterwards, we click on Add to add the Google software repository (it contains Picasa):

Select Specify URL...:

Type in a name for the repository (e.g. Google) and then the URL of the repository ( or if you are on an x86_64 system):

Afterwards you can close YaST.
