Well, I have been trying to switch to openSUSE from Ubuntu, but I cant get
this to work.
I need to upgrade a package that is installed by the default, orca and
at-spi. I usually check out the latest trunk through svn.
I have been trying to do
zypper si -d orca at-spi but the source packages are not available and so i
am not able to build the dependencies so that i can compile and install the
new versions.

This would work if

1) you enable the source repository, try 'zypper lr' to check
if it's already there. To enable it, use 'zypper mr -e ...'.
If it's not there, use 'zypper ar repo-source'

2) the source repository contained dependencies. Unfortunately this
isn't the case due to a bug in the repository creation script.
