YaST Software Repositories
There are many different repositories which can be added and enabled to allow software to be installed from them.
The basic list of repositories that should be enabled are:
- OSS (Open Source Software)
- NON-OSS (Non-free software)
- Update (Security and Bugfix updates)
A list of repositories are available here: Package repositories
This is a list of some of the extra repositories that may also be added, but beware: adding extra repositories for no reason can cause issues and isn't recommended. However, you may wish to add the correct display driver to allow desktop effects, or KDE to get the latest desktop environment.
Audio and video support
- Packman (recommended for mp3 playback)
- VLC (recommended for DVD playback)
Proprietary video card drivers
Latest software versions

Adding and removing repositories
Repositories may be added and removed, enabled or disabled, or their priority may be changed, to ensure software available from more than one repository is downloaded from the desired one.
This may be done from YaST -> Software -> Software Repositories.
Details of adding and removing repositories is available from Add package repositories.
