Somehow I have a computer using OpenSUSE without internet connection. I want to download some packages and their dependencies on windows and install them in OpenSUSE. Is it possible to do so?
You can do this from a DVD or ISO image.
For the DVD usually there is a repository for the DVD. Check this by either YAST or Zypper looking at your Repos.
To make a ISO file to use as a Repo saving time and having to have the DVD handy.
- mkdir ~/sources
use dd for making a iso image you can mount Tutorial on making a iso
dd if=/dev/sdx1 of=~/sources/OpenSUSE_DVD_13_X.iso
Now add the ISO as a software repository
zypper ar -c -t yast2 “iso:/?iso=/home/USERNAME/sources/OpenSUSE_DVD_13_X.iso” “openSuSE 13.X″
Verify the repo with
- List the repos and delete the DVD repo by using the number seen in
Remove the repo for the DVD that is listed in the repo suing its number
sudo zypper rr X
- You can now use
sudo zypper refand than
zypper search X
