http://serverfault.com – I'm new to openSUSE and do not understand how to install packages with zypper. Or, rather, I understand you use the "install" subcommand, but it frequently can't find what Im' looking for. For example, I need libpcap-devel to get the pcap.h headers and the linkable library. The openSUSE website says that the package is available, but it doesn't show ups hen I try to install. Meanwhile zypper says it is installed, but the .h file isn't there: $ sudo zypper install libpcap-dev Refreshing service 'nu_novell_com'. Loading repository data... Reading installed packages... 'libpcap-dev' not found. (HowTos)
