Hi Helixo; Which version of openSUSE are you using? Also, how did you install it (CD, net)?

When the attempted installations crash, what error messages are displayed?

Would you also please post your repository list (zypper -lr).

Tom

The command 'uname -r' will show which Suse 11.4 you have.
And please answer the question from @tommyttt, post #2 :
Show us the reply from the command 'zypper lr' ( No hyphen ! )

There may be a problem with the opera package from Suse ( 64bits.)
This one works :
wget http://get.opera.com/pub/opera/linux...-1074.i386.rpm
> > opera-11.50-1074.i386.rpm
Then you can do 1) su <enter-password>; 2) zypper in opera-11.50-1074.i386.rpm

About torrent : These packages are availabe with # 'zypper in' (Or Yast.):
Code:
 # zypper se torrent

S | Navn              | Resumé                                  | Type

  | monotorrent       | BitTorrent Client written in C#         | package
As you can see, the search command is # zypper se <name> ( or part of name.)

Well, you already have two terminal windows, where you can type commands :
'gnome-terminal' or 'konsole', and 'xterm' :
Menu > More Applications > System Tools > XTerm

( Or type terminal in the "Search", and select a terminal.)

#10 : The first command is su, and then enter your root password.

The second command is : zypper in opera

And by the way, the Suse opera package works OK,
I just installed it with zypper on my other "Suse 11.4 computer".
And used the launcher in the "KDE Menu" :
Applications > Internet > Web Browser > 'Web Browser Opera'.

# 'zypper in opera-11.50-1074.i386.rpm' is for a downloaded package only.

See post # 5.
