Hi:

I have to install list of SuSE Linux files automatically and I am getting missing dependencies error.
I have the following meta data files from SuSE repository:

deltainfo.xml.gz
filelists.xml.gz
other.xml.gz
primary.xml.gz
products.xml
repomd.xml
repomd.xml.asc
repomd.xml.key
susedata.xml.gz
updateinfo.xml.gz.


I am extracting list of file to download from updateinfo.xml.gz . Then I have the dependencies from primary.xml.gz. I don't have the URL/location of the dependencies.

Can you please help me obtain location of these dependencies and general locations.

Best Regards,

Sunnybrad

You can finding out what dependencies an rpm file has (i.e. it will tell you what packages you need to install) with following commands:
rpm -qpR {.rpm-file}
rpm -qR {package-name}

Open in new window


rpm --whatprovides library_name tells you which package provides a specific library
