In rpm speak, when you see a requirement for a dev file, it’s called

A lot of the devel(opment) rpms are on the SLE SDK, which you can
either download or add the mirror via your mirror credentials via
the NCC page.

Information for package libusb-devel:

Repository: SLE11-SDK-SP1-Pool
Name: libusb-devel
Version: 0.1.12-139.1.1
Arch: x86_64
Vendor: SUSE LINUX Products GmbH, Nuernberg, Germany
Support Level: unknown
Installed: No
Status: not installed
Installed Size: 575.0 KiB
Summary: USB Libraries
Libusb is a library that allows userspace access to USB devices.

If you download the SDK, you just need the iso image on the system,
then use YaST → Add on products and point to the iso image, it will
then add the online and update repositories to your system.

You only need DVD1 for your system arch (DVD2 is the src rpms)

What are you trying to add to your system, there are many applications
on the Open Build Service?

I will now see what you suggested. (btw i have no dvd, i got suse SLED preinstalled on my laptop as i bought it.)

Which one should i download?
the i586 or x86_64 or any other?

then i guess its the x86 64 one. ( i am downloadin it)

i tried 1.2.3.
Should i check the repositorz for openSUSe 12? I did it an it started downlading something. It said : could harm my system integrity or something like that.

First i unchecked it but i got this >

The following software could not be installed:

it installed 1.2.3.
I downlaoded the ISO and burned it onto DVD. From it i installed libusb-devel and so on.

After that i executed “make install” on the lates usb_modeswitch 1.2.5. and the latest modeswitch Data. And it works, it detects my Huawei e1750.

Thank you
