I want to get a list of all available versions of a package, the same list that you can see in Yast, but using zypper.

OpenSuse 13.1, zypper 1.9.16

20

Use search -s. For example, sudo zypper search -s fortune might give this output:

i | fortune | package    | 1.99.1-6.1.4 | x86_64 | 13.1-OpenSUSE-InstallOss

  | fortune | srcpackage | 1.99.1-6.1.4 | noarch | 13.1-OpenSUSE-SourceOss       
  | fortune | srcpackage | 1.99.1-6.1.4 | noarch | Tumbleweed-OpenSUSE-SourceOss

    Since I just had to look it up: The S in the header of the first column stands for "Status". The values are: i -> Installed. v -> Another version installed. Blank space -> Neither – twobeers May 13 '16 at 11:40
