This is my firts english post.
Das ist mein erster englisher Post.
In this little post i’ll describe in a few words how to install Synaptic on SuSE 10.1 without to compie or use RPMs.
At First you have to install a other package manager witch is called SMART PACKAGE MANAGER. This is the newes Packagemanager of the apt-get developer, somebody thinks thats an improvement but in my opinion its still bugy especialy under SuSE 10.1 (in my case it crashed very offen). But i used it as my first choice PM despite the crashes its realy fullfeatured and have more Packages for SuSE 10.1 because it uses more ways to get packages.
You can get Smart from your SuSE DVD. Install with yast the main package (smart) the gui(smart-gui) an at last the addons(smart-adon). Before you can realy use your Smart you must add a new list of repositories with the following command:
smart channel –add http://divine160281.di.funpic.de/channel/suse101x86.txt
After that start Smart and search at first for apt-get with all the dependencies because synaptic is olny the frontend for this. And at last search for synaptic and/or Ksynaptic.
Now Your Synaptic shout run.
i HIGHLY recommend NOT to add Online-repositories is YAST it will cause an ERROR in your Yast Keys
