Dear Thomas, hello list,
I think the revamping is a great idea and I appreciate your work and effort but I think
this new search still has it difficulties and problems.

Tks, I looked and like the presentation.
I wonder that I do not see "Tumbleweed" ??
I think it is still mixed up with openSUSE 12.1.
And now you could not even guess/see that the packages are really build for Tumbleweed
and not for 12.1.
In addition to that you do not see the file names.
So it will be easier for the packages that are already easy to search with the YaST
But for the cases software search would be a help now - an other solution would be
Example (maybe I am wrong?):
Kernel module r8168
(I think it has to be for the right kernel version number, kernel flavor and openSUSE
Please make a try to find a fitting one (and especially if there is one) with
for the case on
Linux linux-x9yw 3.1.9-1.4-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT Fri Jan 27 08:55:10
UTC 2012 (efb5ff4) x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
The new search may seem easier for me at the beginning as I could better choose the
modules fitting to a kernel flavor. But if you do not
look at the linked URL I will not be able to see that the
kernel version number does not fit.
And before this change it was only puzzling/difficult that the Tumbleweed packages are
filed under "openSUSE 12.1" - with the new design it
is almost impossible to notice.
I guess this would lead to many systems messed up in a wild Tumbleweed/12.1 mixture...
Hi Martin, please check again. I updated the software search page with the latest
version, and it shows Tumbleweed as a seperate distro now.
The search for openSUSE 12.1 packages with the new front-end/layout seems now really to
lead to openSUSE 12.1 and not also to Tumbleweed packages.
I think that is really a big improvement!
But as I am not able to see the name of the packages in the search results (unless I use
the trick with the URL of the Link) it is still pretty
difficult to find a package for the fitting kernel version number like 3.1.9-1.4
I would like to see the information like the name of the file
without going the way:
(klick, klick, klick, klick, ...)
Maybe I am not learned enough to understand that kernel module things and I could use
kernel modules build for a 3.1.0_1.2-7.1 openSUSE kernel
version also for a kernel with a 3.1.9-1.4 version number but I thought things like that
would be important.
I can't follow you. You should not need to check any version numbering, just click on
link for your distribution and the package management will resolve the dependencies and
install your package.
For your case Tumbleweed, you probably have installed kernel 3.2.10 from the Tumbleweed
Searching for r8168-kmp-desktop will give you the package
from the drivers:nic repository. Which is obviously build for an older Kernel version,
because it fails
to build in the drivers:nic obs project since some time. So I think it won't be
installable for you and the
package management will detect this. Or am I wrong here?
We are in the area of unsupported packages here where the page shows a clear warning that
there are risks.
In my view it would make sense to switch back to the old/current layout when the results
from the sub-project repositories are shown (or at
least for the really private home repositories).
In addition to more information about the packages and the package builders this would be
a fitting 'warning' - more than (only) that pop-up
How should that work to include the old layout search results in the new application
Could you create graphic that shows what you mean?
