Synaptec on SuSE 9.2Posted: 25/05/2005
I was searching for an easy way to duplicate a SuSE 9.2 server… so I went google-ling and found this solution: install synaptec, save the packagelist and install that list. I previously used yast2 but that piece of crap went wrong on updated packages. It didn’t found the package on the CD/DVD/ftp-server and skipped it. So I used synaptec…
I downloaded folowing packages from the suse server into my own apt-directory:
I didn’t save the link where I found those files, sorry. I tried “rpm -i *.rpm” and solved the dependencies using “yast2 sw_single”
This is the source.list I used and found a link on the apt4rpm homepage. I only had a problem in doing the update using synaptec. I got key problems and via google I found a suse link which told me I had to change RPM::GPG-Check in the /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/gpg-checker.conf file. When I changed it to no it worked fine.
saving package list
It seemed to work pretty easy: I used the “Save Markings as” in the File menu-option and flagged the save full state-option.
