How to install tuxpaint to SUSE linux enterprise 10.0???


Hi,

My son just loves this, but we had to get a new computer. I don't know much about linux so I can't figure out how to get this to work. I installed the file and whenever I click "Install" from Software Installer it says, "Dependency Resolution Failed Unresolved dependencies:
There are no installable providers of tuxpaint
Marking this resolution attempt as invalid."

How do I get it to work, and could you explain it in a way i would understand?

Hi and welcome to LQ.

You can download the tuxpaint rpm from here and install it manually using rpm e.g.
Code:
#rpm -Uvh tuxpaint-0.9.15b-14.i586.rpm
If rpm complains of any missing dependencies download them from the same site. Post back if you need more help.

The example I posted above shows how to install tuxpaint manually using the rpm command. A more elegant way, which will resolve all dependencies automatically is to add an openSUSE 10.1 mirror to your YAST software sources and then use YAST to install tuxpaint.
  1. Run YAST -> Software -> Software Repositories
  2. The protocol for the new source should be http. The server name is download.opensuse.org and the direcory is distribution/SL-10.1/inst-source/
When the mirror has been setup, you can then install tuxpaint by going to YAST -> Software -> Software Management. Run a search for Tuxpaint and then install it.

When I click next after typing in the server name and directory it says this:
Curl error for 'http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/SL-10.1/inst-source/suse/setup/descr/DVD-Asia-10.1-67.noarch.sel':
Error code: HTTP response: 403
Error message: The requested URL returned error: 403

What do I do?
