Repositories are collections of Linux software. They can be used to
extend your openSUSE installation with software that is not included in an
openSUSE release for size or policy reasons, or to update it with newer
software versions that were not available at the time of release.
[Note: there are offline repositories as well (ie: DVD). ]

Repositories may contain software of any trust level and may replace
important system packages as well as adding new software. In addition, by
combining many different repositories and installing their software, conflicts
between software versions may arise which cause some packages to be

Before registering arbitrary repositories to your openSUSE installation,
you should consider these risks. The repositories suggested by the Community
Repositories list in YaST's Installation Sources module are intended to be
safe and free of conflicts. However, when installing or updating software you
should always look at the proposed changes to make sure nothing is being added
or removed that could compromise the integrity of your installation. If in
doubt, do not continue.

==Debug packages==
To help improve openSUSE, you can report bugs when a program crashes. The Dr
Konqi application can install additional debug packages to improve the quality
of this crash information. For openSUSE releases, these packages are
contained in a separate repository due to their size. This repository is safe
to add.
[Note: this is not clear since you don't mention that safe repositiory]

==Multimedia Software==
Support for proprietary formats and codecs is not shipped out-of-the box in
openSUSE. Please see the [] for
more information on enabling proprietary formats.
