A Very Basic Reference for Zypper on openSUSE

terminal-iconZypper is a great package manager tool and easy to use. Although I don’t have as much need for my notes as I once did, I like to keep them as a reference for me and a place to point to others. I find as I became more and more used to using it in the terminal it becomes second nature but you have to start somewhere. The manual,

man zypper

is a great, well written and complete reference but can be a bit overwhelming for someone brand new to openSUSE. The openSUSE wiki is also a great reference but it is geared more toward those with more experience, as it should be. This is just a very basic reference written to my inner 8th grader or for those that want to dabble or give package management in the terminal a try. After all, the terminal is not something to be afraid of, it is something to embrace and use as often as possible.
