It would help if you gave us a full description of the problem.  To just 
say you're "not having much luck" isn't very illustrative.  I came 
across what I presume is your post on this issue in the openSUSE forums:

I can see from the forum thread that you're having trouble installing 
AtomicParsley with your package manager, but you should provide that 
information here - maybe someone else has seen the problem.  It seems a 
wee bit rash to just assume that the RPM for a stable package like 
AtomicParsley is broken.

FWIW, I couldn't duplicate your issue.  I used the same RPM you 
referenced in your forum post with openSUSE 12.1 and zypper installed it 
with no problem.  You say that zypper is freezing because the package 
requires acceptance of a license. I would be pretty surprised if the 
AtomicParsley package was built to do that.  Development stopped on AP 
0.9.0 years ago and I doubt the RPM package build has changed much 
either.  I suppose it's not impossible, but I don't see it here.   My 
only suggestion is to try adding --auto-agree-with-licenses to your 
zypper command line.

AFAICT, the AtomicParsley package from still seems to be the 
best bet for RPM-based distros.  Some brave soul recently attempted to 
get an AtomicParsley package into, but didn't meet with 
much success:

His 64-bit build is here:

A quick test indicates it works OK on openSUSE 12.1, which is no 
surprise - it's the same underlying code as the RPM.

Somebody has also forked the current AtomicParsley code base at

He is providing static builds for Linux/Windows/OSX.  The Linux build 
seems to work OK on openSUSE 12.1.
