Hello all, first time caller, long time listener
New to Linux as of 2 months ago, minimal programming knowledge, SLED11 SP1 came with my machine so I thought I would give it a shot. I do have an engineering background, so I am loving the challenge!
Anyway, being an engineer, I am obviously looking for a good CAD program for Linux. I found two that are promising, LibreCad and QCad(it actually seems as though they are versions of each other, but that's irrelevant). My problem is that when I go to download the .rpm for LibreCad, which I would prefer, there isn't a build for SLED11.1, which I'm running. There's Fedora, Mandriva, openSUSE 11.3, etc.
I obviously realized I don't have these so tried their option, "source package for all distributions - src.rpm" where I used YaST to run it and got the following error:
[PK_TMP_DIR|dir:///var/tmp/TmpDir.eSDj0q] Repository already exists.
I have received 'repository exists' errors before, so I tried the fix I learned:
sudo zypper rr 2
sudo zypper rr 1
sudo zypper clean -a
sudy zypper ref
after which I tried to install again, and got the following error:
[PK_TMP_DIR|dir:///var/tmp/TmpDir.fTvkCP] Repository already exists.
sooooo ya...haha, a few questions...
1) Am I just trying to install the incorrect file? This was the only option that made sense, unless I went to "older versions .rc3 & .rc4"
2) What am I doing incorrectly to install the file I have?
3) Am I not cleaning the repository properly?
4) Should I find a way to install it without YaST?
I know y'all like detailed questions, hope that's enough! Thanks guys!!
