openSUSE:Standards Rpm Metadata – openSUSE: Repository layout

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/07/09

For my link archive: [WayBack] openSUSE:Standards Rpm Metadata – openSUSE: Repository layout.

It is not fully up to date any more on primary.xml.gz, so here are my notes for the aarch64 version of Tumbleweed:

  1. Inspect [WayBack] for the name of *-primary.xml.gz (in this case [WayBack]
  2. Download that .gz file and uncompress it
  3. Inspect the *-primary.xml from it, look inside the metatadata root element for a package having a name element with value openSUSE-release: that package element now has a version element having a ver attribute containing the version text.
