Thread: Package search on SLES

  1. #1

    Question Package search on SLES

    Hi,

    How do I perform an exhaustive search when using SMT/RMT?
    SMT/RMT do not allow querying non-enabled repos on the client.
    Anyway, SMT/RMT would need those packages synced in the first place.

    https://software.opensuse.org/find seems to provide a search for SLE-*** but never returns any results (works well when selecting OpenSuse).

    Anyone have an idea?

    Thanks,
    Marki

    Hi
    The other place is SUSE Package Hub? https://packagehub.suse.com/

    Do you have an OBS account? If not, suggest you create one and then use osc from the command line to find possible packages...

    One can always create a link to the package and build (unsupported of course). The other place on OBS is the backports projects for SLE.

    Even better, if the package your after is in Tumbleweed, then ask the maintainer if they are willing to maintain in backports and it builds of course, then get them to submit and it will appear on SUSE PAckage Hub, a win for all

    Re: Package search on SLES

    AFACIS Package Hub doesn't provide a list of _all_ SLES packages. It only contains those from Package Hub, not for example Web and Scripting Module, Server Applications, etc.pp.

    As far as OBS is concerned, I don't see either where it would provide that very information.

    I need to know if a certain package exists in SLES and also what module I have to activate (and before that maybe sync to SMT) to get it.

    Can someone maybe ping the people in charge of the opensuse search why their search isn't working?

    Hi
    It's always been like that, the database out of sync, you can send an email to admin {at} opensuse (dot) org and get a ticket created.
    You can then follow it here: https://progress.opensuse.org/
