Click Installation

If you search for a package in the Build Service search tool at http://software.opensuse .org/search, you will see a number of entries similar to Figure 12-6. At the top-right of each entry is an icon labeled "1-Click Install". You have a choice whether to download one of the individual packages listed under "Manual Package Download" or to install the correct package and its dependencies simply by clicking the "1-Click Install" icon.

When you click on that icon, an automated process takes place whereby YaST is started, you are prompted for the root password to continue, and then YaST adds the relevant repository and installs the package. Clicking "1-Click install'' downloads a special file (in the case of our example, heartbeat.ymp) from the web site. This file (which is a YaST meta-package file) is an XML fragment that contains instructions for YaST about how to add the repository and install the package. Listing 12-13 shows an example.
