Summary0000552: opensuse Tumbleweed install repositories bad
DescriptionI went to the website and selected openSUSE. I followed the instructions for the Tumbleweed version and got this:

INSTALL Repository:

[email protected]:~> sudo zypper ar -f cingg
[sudo] password for root:
Adding repository 'cingg' .......................................................................[done]
Repository 'cingg' successfully added

Enabled : Yes
GPG Check : Yes
Autorefresh : Yes
Priority : 99 (default priority)

Repository priorities in effect: (See 'zypper lr -P' for details)
      90 (raised priority) : 1 repository
      99 (default priority) : 13 repositories

I then disabled the GPG check which went OK.

I then did the next step:

INSTALL program:

[email protected]:~> sudo zypper install -r cingg cinelerra
Retrieving repository 'cingg' metadata .........................................................[error]
Repository 'cingg' is invalid.
[cingg|] Valid metadata not found at specified URL
 - [cingg|] Repository type can't be determined.

Please check if the URIs defined for this repository are pointing to a valid repository.

Nothing to do.

Checking further I found that there is no directory for tweed in However, I found a package in download/old_pkgs/tweed/cinelerra-5.1-tweed-20200930.x86_64.rpm which I installed.

It appears to be working OK for now.

Perhaps your web site needs to be updated... Tom.

The last tar/package for tweed is in old_pkgs and old_tars. Website has been updated to inform users to use AppImage.

The AppImages will be named differently from now on to include the date. For example:

Your wish is my command.

I downloaded the AppImage and ran a simple edit with no problems. Everything seemed to work properly.

Thanks... Tom.

You are right -- I need to update ALL of the directions on the website. We had to drop Tumbleweed from the monthly builds because every time when we updated Tumbleweed distro, it took hours and instead of doing an update, it was literally reinstalling the entire O/S -- remember, we did a lot of different distros and did not boot each of them on a daily basis for them to be continuously updated. Which meant that there were gigantic updates to be done all at once. Because Tumbleweed became such a big issue and there was little usage, we eliminated from the builds upon agreement in the Mailing List where some really sophisticated users gave up on it as being too messy.

But that's not important right now. We have been working on creating an AppImage for the Linux distros now due to unforeseen circumstances and this is the way new builds will be disbursed probably from now on. Of course, it is always possible to do a build manually if you prefer as outlined in the manual.

If you have the opportunity to test this on Tumbleweed and report back, that would be much appreciated as it is new and usage has not been that high yet.
