yum equivalent in SUSE is zipper. So you would do

zipper search <package name>
zipper install <package name>
zipper remove <package name>

HTH,
Dan

In SUSE, if you are using a GUI, you can also install software directly via the Yast Control Center. This is one of the most important and best utilities available in SUSE, as it centralizes practically everything you need to administer and setup your system. This makes things very easy.

In the "Software" section of Yast you can add repositories, configure and your updates, update the system, search for and install software etc.

Is there a reason you need exactly THAT version of Zip? Won't the standard version available from your repository do? Just install the Standard version of Zip either using Zypper, or use the non GUI version of Yast (sudo /sbin/yast) to install and manage your software.

Normally you dont install src rpms
You must rpmbuild it and install resulting package

You could install exactly same version with zypper but supported build from SUSE...

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
