It look like a packaging difference between OpenSuse and Fedora.

Using I find the required library is provided by the package libchealpix0:

Can you try to install libchealpix0, then force install of skychart without dependency check (I don't know how to do that on Opensuse but there is probably a zypper option for that).
If this work I can look how to update the rpm to accept the two variant.

I apologize for not getting back to you sooner. For some reason, I didn't get notice of your interaction. I resolved the issue by doing what you here suggested.

Thank you to confirm that.

I try to make a change to the rpm that must allow to install on both system, not easy because documentation is sparse.

Can you try with today beta rpm available from
A good test is to uninstall skychart and libchealpix0, then reinstall to see how it work.

After uninstall of skychart and libchealpix0 and libchealpix-devel (it did that automatically)

sudo rpm -i ./skychart-4.3-4755.x86_64.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
    (chealpix or libchealpix0) is needed by skychart-4.3-4755.x86_64
    libjpeg is needed by skychart-4.3-4755.x86_64
    qt5pas is needed by skychart-4.3-4755.x86_64

Thank you for the test, this not work and I will revert this change.
You can install by ignoring the dependencies, as you with the other version.

I not find more information how to do that. I know how to do with debian packages, but it look like this is not possible with rpm.

This is fixed in today version 4.3-4757 :
I have tested in OpenSuse and Fedora virtual machine so I am confident to close the issue.
Now it work correctly when using:
sudo zypper install skychart-4.3-4757.x86_64.rpm

As conditional do not work, the solution is to use a generic common name recognized by both distribution.
The difficulty for me was to understand that for rpm "" is more generic than "chealpix" :)

I have also added a signature to the package but you still have to ignore the zypper warning.
I not think it is good to add the public key to fix this warning, but if you want to try it is available here:

Finally I added a buildid to the binary so it no more complain when building the rpm. I not need it, but this is for the case it start to complain at install time in the future.
