You may also install GIMP 2.4.0 from the Packman repository. I preferred to name the package
gimp24instead of just
gimpto avoid all the happy "update all" triggers who have the Packman repository in the package manager configuration to suddenly get an unintended upgrade. If you actually want to upgrade, it's
zypper in gimp24or
smart install gimp24That should automatically remove the (much more tested)
gimp2.2.x packages that ship with openSUSE 10.2 or 10.3, or the
gimp-unstable2.4.0rc* snapshots that were already available on Packman.
