The easiest way to find packages you need is to use the search function in YaST That worked once. I found and installed KFind. Tried to "find" another app, and was stymied by
a program called ruby.ruby. Was told I need to close it. I didn't open it, and I don't know what it does. Yeah, that's a pretty cryptic message that it displays. Anytime the YaST2 Software Management Module complains that it being "blocked by ruby.ruby2.X" when it is launched, what it means is that there is already another instance of YaST2 software management window open. Perhaps you didn't already close the previous YaST2 window you launched ? I opened a bug here: https://github.com/yast/yast-yast2/issues/1102, to improve that message. In most cases you don't need to "kill" anything, just close that other YaST2 window that is open and hit "Retry" on this one.
Finally a letter that didn't tell me I'm too old/stupid/etc. to use Linux. Thank you!
Please read all the posts, because there are several posts with advice and instructions, and not calling you old or stupid. -- Cheers / Saludos, Carlos E. R. (from 15.1 x86_64 at Telcontar)
