Hi there,

anyone knowing of a way to use ymp-files on the commandline? Couldn't find
something on the net...

As I have a bunch of clients here, it would be great if I could use
one-click-install via script.

Alternatively just script it using zypper ar/in

I'm coming into this conversation late, so forgive me if I'm going
over old ground. But I thought of two extensions to this OCICLI
functionality which might be really nice.

Firstly, it would be cool to have an extra utility which would
integrate OCICLI with the search step which is the inevitable
precursor to OCICLI invocation. Here's a mockup (although it would
probably make a lot more sense to provide an extra YaST module to
achieve this, allowing both graphical and ncurses UIs):

$ OCIgrab foo
Searching for 'foo' in OpenSUSE 10.3 repos via ...
Found several matches:
1. foo in
2. foomatic-filters in
3. FooBillard in
4. FooBillard in
5. tuxpaint-stamps-food in
Please select one of interest: 2 is already
installed; please try again.

Please select one of interest: 4

Install ymp via OCICLI or return to selection [y/n/r] ?

and another, in which there is a single search result so the selection process:

$ OCIgrab food
Searching for 'food' in OpenSUSE 10.3 repos via ...
Found a unique match!
5. tuxpaint-stamps-food in

Selected repository: Education:desktop

Install ymp via OCICLI [y/n] ?

Secondly, the above OCIgrab could be integrated with the recent
command-not-found hack from HackWeek:


$ giver

Program 'giver' is not installed, but it might be available via the
openSUSE Build Service. Would you like to search for it [y/n] ?
