[opensuse] which repository is safe ?

I'd like to install the R GUI for Linux (JGR)
Instructions can be found on
The installation on SuSE is not so straightforward.
The provided guidelines are to me confusing as some of
the listed commands do not belong to the bash commands
I know JGR installation needs which is not
in the standard SuSE10.3 distribution.
I know I can download it from some repository.
For instance I found
libg2c33-32bit-3.3.3-41.13.x86_64.rpm on:

If that is the right library then the installation
command (with root privilege) is:
# rpm -Uvh <lib_name> ?????

There may be a more direct way to get and install it
if I open the door to automatic update from where ???
Having lost control of my computer twice already,
because of wild on-line updates, I would greatly
appreciate your advice about which repositories are
I have received some advice but they refer presumably
to another SuSE version as I cannot retrieve the same
Yast entries. To avoid further confusion I'm attaching
some screenshots about mt Yast configuration (default)
so that I can go from there.

Thank you so much for your help.
