    what u mean by an apt-get repository? SuSE doesn't use apt-get. If u want to, you can give YaST an online source to get files from, a list of mirrors is available here

    ive got suse 9.1 and apt-get install and it works great.

    ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/suse/apt...MS.suser-rbos/

    just change 9.1 to the version that you have and then rpm -Uvh apt-*.rpm

    oh yes, and i ran into some problems during installation.

    if you get some failed dependencies error message, just delete that apt file, and rpm -Uvh the rest of rpms.

    But why do you need to install it for SuSE?? This is what i dont get. SuSE has a decent package manager out there.

    Just setup SuSE to install from an FTP site, and there u have it. SuSE's very own version of apt-get essentially.

    I use it because it's an easy way to get mplayer and all its dependencies installed, among other things. There are some packages available via apt repositories that aren't available through online YaST repositories.
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    what u mean? YaST installs dependencies ok.

    Or is it a bit shady with mplayer? I have never installed mplayer on my suse.

    Though i will be reinstalling suse shortly, i will try mplayer.
