I am trying to install R for SLE 11 SP3. On R's readme pages it suggests adding a repo located at http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/devel:/languages:/R:/patched/ but there is no directory there for SLE 11.

I am on an AWS EC2 instance.

Will greatly appreciate help.


That is old: OpenSUSE 13 is current; 12 has had no updates for a year or so, and as far as I know the release versions correspond to SLE. According to the description, SLE 11 would have updates if you have a support contract.

Considering the dates in the download area, it seems that 13 came out late 2013, and 12 came out late 2011 (while 11 came out in 2009), and each release gets a few updates past the time when the next release comes out.

Further reading:

  • Thanks... Luckily I found an old rpm and an old repository. But I am stuck with SLE 11 SP3 until my vendor certifies an upgrade :-( – Dinesh Apr 6 '16 at 1:37
