Installing R, OPENCPN (and QGIS) on SLED-12 SP2

Hello, I am trying to install on SLED-12 SP2 three key programs which I cannot find in the SUSE package searches. Its been years since I’ve been on linux so working to get the key programs I need installed on SLED 12. I had problems installing with Tumbleweed so I have upgraded to SLED-12.

The programs applications are R/Rstudio and OpenCPN. Both could not install on opensuse Tubleweed so I am trying to see if SLED will work. The YAST tool for SLED seems to be far more limited in the applications packages than that for opensuse.

using a ‘sudo zypper install qgis’ command returns an invalid repository on SLED but did work on Tumbleweed. P


This is the Tumbleweed error. I have now installed/upgraded to SLED12 hoping to resolve this issue with OPENCPN
@Beta:~> opencpn
Mismatch between program and library build version detected.
The library used 2.8 (no debug,Unicode,compiler with C++ ABI 1010, wx containers, compatible with 2.6),
and your program used 2.8 (no debug, Unicode,compiler with C++ ABI 1002,wx containers, compatible with 2.6).
Aborted (core dumped)

2. R/Rstudio -
This was the error from Tumbleweed that I am hoping the enterprise version (SLED-12) will resolve
Beta:~ # rstudi
rstudio: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such
file or directory

nothing provides needed by

[ ] do not install rstudio-0.98.501-1.62.x86_64

[ ] break rstudio-0.98.501-1.62.x86_64 by ignoring some of its dependencies

YaST2 conflicts list END

3. QGIS - I do not see where it has a version for SLED12?

Any advice on how to install on SLED-12 even for packages that are not pre-listed on SLED library like R/R-studio and OPENCPN.

Thank you for your assistance.


Since those packages are on OBS, you can ask the package maintainers to enable for SLE 12 SP2, the may already be enabled but failing eg qgis;

You can then ask if the could (if the package is in tumbleweed) push to SUSE Package Hub and also maintain there;

Else you would need to grab from the relevant OBS repository, all unsupported of course.
