I have a virtual machine I just set up. I'm running a completely fresh install of OpenSUSE (with online updates from
yast). At the terminal I tried to run
$ python bash: python: command not found
$ python --version bash: python: command not found
So then I tried:
$ zypper install python Loading repository data... Reading installed packages... Resolving package dependencies... Problem: patterns-openSUSE-minimal_base-conflicts-12.3-7.10.1.x86_64 conflicts with python provided by python-2.7.3-10.1.1x86_64
The terminal then offers two solutions, to either uninstall the minimal base conflicts business or to not install python. I don't want to uninstall anything because I don't know what it will. I suppose I could if I had a better understanding of it, but perhaps there is a problem someone else can see here?
Edit: Don't know if this will help, but I did not install any GUI on my virtual machine.
