Hi Michael,

Where is 'alien-8.78-1.2.noarch' from? openSUSE:Factory:Contrib has
alien-8.78-1.18.noarch and requires perl = 5.10.1.

It seems that I solved my problem.
First I ignored the error and forced installation of alien.

After that I realized that I had a mix of factory and 11.2 packages and
corrected this and did a zypper dup. alien now works

But to answer your question:

This information I got from yast:

│Name │ │Version │Repository │Size │Architecture
i│alien │ x │8.78-1.2│os 11.2 contrib│ 238.0 KiB│noarch

and this is what zypper shows:

cassiopeia:~ # zypper if alien
Loading repository data...
Reading installed packages...

Information for package alien:

Repository: @System
