SUSE packaging

This page describes packaging of OpenStack packages for openSUSE and SUSE Linux Enterprise.

openSUSE distribution

OpenStack packages for openSUSE are updated daily from the respective OpenStack git branches, automatically tested and then published in an additional repository for consumption.

For Liberty, the repository is here: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Cloud:/OpenStack:/Liberty/

For Mitaka, the repository is here: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Cloud:/OpenStack:/Mitaka/

For Newton, the repository is here: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Cloud:/OpenStack:/Newton/

The OpenStack client packages are part of the standard openSUSE distribution.

Current OpenStack packages

The openSUSE Build Service is used for packaging and publishing of different OpenStack release for openSUSE and SUSE Linux Enterprise. It thus allows to install newer OpenStack releases.

Packages are created in subprojects of Cloud:OpenStack named after the OpenStack release, e.g. Cloud:OpenStack:Kilo or Cloud:OpenStack:Liberty.

These packages which can be downloaded from download.opensuse.org are currently built for active openSUSE releases and SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 and later

To install these packages, add the repository via zypper and install.

For example for openSUSE Leap 42.2 Newton packages, do:

 zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Cloud:/OpenStack:/Newton/openSUSE_Leap_42.2/Cloud:OpenStack:Newton.repo 

For example for openSUSE Leap 42.1 Mitaka packages, do:

 zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Cloud:/OpenStack:/Mitaka/openSUSE_Leap_42.1/Cloud:OpenStack:Mitaka.repo

And then install the packages, e.g. with:

 zypper in openstack-cinder openstack-nova
