Is there a pattern somewhere? How do YOU install a .so file through the package manager?

That was enlightening, thanks. But the output I received is No providers of '' found. does this mean that Suse's repository has NO support for this .so? – TheIndependentAquarius Aug 10 '11 at 12:09
Yes ... I've trying on my Fedora and i've the same output. Google isn't very "talkative" either about this library – Loïc GRENON Aug 10 '11 at 12:20
:) I realized, libqtnmedia is a part of QtitanMultimedia component and is already present in its zip file. – TheIndependentAquarius Aug 18 '11 at 10:09

I think zypper wp will do the trick.

zypper wp searches in packages by filename and displays where it is contained.
