I installed SLES 15 with minimum installation and tried to install the cloud-init package.
Using the following command : zypper addrepo https://download.opensuse.org/reposi...oud:Tools.repo zypper refresh zypper install cloud-init zypper install cloud-init fails with : Loading repository data... Reading installed packages... 'cloud-init' not found in package names. Trying capabilities. No provider of 'cloud-init' found. Resolving package dependencies... Nothing to do. I search for cloud-init package running zypper search cloud-init S | Name | Summary | Type --+-----------------------------+----------------------------------------------------+----------- | cloud-init | Cloud node initialization tool | srcpackage | cloud-init-vmware-guestinfo | A cloud-init datasource that uses VMware GuestInfo | package | cloud-init-vmware-guestinfo | A cloud-init datasource that uses VMware GuestInfo | srcpackage So the type here is srcpackage that's why zypper install cloud-init failed. Then I tried zypper si cloud-init, This asks to install all the required packages separately. Is this a normal behavior? If so then where can I get the repos to be added in order to install the dependencies separately.
