This is an old problem that has re-emerged. Saving an rpm to disk and
then clicking on it opens up a dialogue for installing via yast.
Clicking on that and entering the password, it does all the repository
checks and all that stuff and then comes back and says:


Following packages haven't been found on the medium:
xxxxxxxx


This is a big problem, which ultimately forced me to go back to 11.0.

I do not want to download from outside repositories, I want to save my
files locally for backup and later installations. Besides, I have many
programs that are not opensuse creations to install via rpm's.

When will it be fixed?

You can use zypper for this (I don't know when it will be fixed).
sudo zypper in path_to_rpm

Or plain old rpm .... It could be annoying that the GUI option doesn't
work, but it's not reason for reinstalling and configuring a desktop
again ¬¬




Do you keep your RPMs in one location? If so just set that as an RPM
repository and then all your RPMs will show up in YAST.
