Reorganization of the Packman repository structure


There has been a reorganization of the structure of the Packman repository, which is the main repository for the GNU/Linux distribution of Arch Linux, as well as an additional repository for many other GNU/Linux distributions, including openSUSE.

From now on, it is divided into several different ones.

  • Essentials - the main multimedia components (libraries, codecs).
  • Multimedia - various programs and auxiliary components.
  • Games - games.
  • Extra - everything that is not included in the previous categories.

The old links still work. They link to new addresses.

/suse/11.3 ---> /suse/openSUSE_11.3

In openSUSE 11.4, YaST2 will have a selection of separate repositories under "Community Repositories".

For zypper you can use links:
