Example : # zypper in ktorrent


Yast can be used too, takes longer time, and uses much more resources
from CPU and memory.

No. # zypper in <package-name> will do.

Use # zypper se ... : To find the right package name.

Or use Yast for search and install.

Doesn't matter. Yast or zypper will download the package
from a "Suse server", and install the software automatically.

Quote:

Suse packages are .rpm packages.
No extension is used when you search (zypper se) or install (zypper in).

Just try with some small basic packages. Example :
# zypper se Terminal
# zypper in Terminal

The most common 14,000 applications / libraries are available from Suse.
Additional software http://en.opensuse.org/Additional_package_repositories

There will almost never be any need to download a package manually.
So you don't have to care about package extensions.
