Regarding the above mentioned listing of repos - can we say that I have osmosis installed yet?

How can i test if osmosis is installed?

Can this be tested on commandline - in terminal? How?

to do so you just have to type in console "cnf osmosis":

:~> cnf osmosis

Then you will receive the message whether it is installed and the path to the programme (if installed) or the repo with it (if you have repo with this software). Here is my output for example:

The program 'osmosis' can be found in the following package:
  * osmosis [ path: /usr/bin/osmosis, repository: zypp (Application:Geo) ]

Try installing with:
    sudo zypper install osmosis

You can find osmosis in "Application:Geo" repository for openSUSE:

http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Application:/Geo/openSUSE_12.1/

UPD: you've installed this repo already and called it gis_osmisis. so you will need to install osmosis itself. Note that there is a GUI for package management: go to computer->install/remove software in application luncher, or Software Manager in Yast. Note that in openSUSE you don't need to use console for the most of administration tasks - there is a very user-friendly Yast.

@zero, yes, it seems that you have to install it, the command is already given: "sodo zypper install osmosis". If you are planing to use POstGIS, then you need to install it too. Hope this helps, I won't be available for several days. –  SS_Rebelious Apr 28 '12 at 14:27
