The preferred method to install ESS on OpenSUSE Linux is using the 1-click install facility the OpenSUSE Build Service (OBS) provides in their search interface. Nevertheless some seemed to have trouble using that interface, what inspired creating a page collecting direct links to the packages installation sources.
The links in the table below invoke yast2 directly to provide access to OpenSUSE's 1-click-install. Architecture and dependencies are handled automatically. You must be root to do this.
|SLE 11 SP2||Install|
|SLE 11 SP3||Install|
The version provided here at the moment is ESS-16.10 .
As superuser do
VERSION=$(grep VERSION /etc/SuSE-release | sed -e 's/VERSION = //') zypper addrepo -f \ http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/devel\:languages\:R\:supplement/openSUSE_$VERSION/ \ R-supplement
which automatically determines your installed version of openSUSE. After that
zypper install emacs-ess
will install ESS and all dependencies.
If for whatever reason you prefer downloading and manual installation of emacs-ess, use the search interface for your openSUSE version.
