As far as I know, php-tidy has been integrated in SuSE Linux first in  
SUSE Linux 10.1, but not in SUSE Linux 10.0/SLE10. php-tidy depends  
on libtidy (the TidyLib), which hasn't been part of the distribtion  
before (only the commandline program tidy has been part of before).
Since SUSE Linux 10.0, I am the maintainer of Tidy/libtidy packages  
for SUSE Linux, so libtidy packages have been part of the  
distribution since SUSE Linux 10.0.
I cannot give an answer to the question, why the tidy-php package has  
been part of the SUSE Linux distribution so late (it's part of SUSE  
Linux 10.1 and _not_ 10.0 first, although my provided libtidy  
packages have been available). I remember, that when I began  
providing libtidy packages to SUSE, I have pointed the php package  
maintainer several times to fix this php issue, so ask SUSE's PHP  
package maintainer for the delay.

You can get the latest php packages and appropriate libtidy packages  
for several SUSE Linux/openSUSE distributions from the openSUSE Build  
Service (trunk and newest factory builds) from


or its its associated software repository (the only FTP mirror for  
daily builds as of today)

To be a little bit more stable, you can also get these packages from

http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/ and its several mirrors  
(here you can find the SUSE/openSUSE distributions as they are stable  
published on CD/DVD).

On http://en.opensuse.org/Mirrors_Released_Version and
http://de.susewiki.org/index.php?title=Smart-mirror-liste, you can  
find a mirror list of more FTP Mirror Servers, which mirror http:// 

So, finally said, maybe you have to install the php packages for SUSE  
Linux 10.1, because only since then php-tidy is part of the  
distribution. Or you have to install a recent SRPM package of php and  
build php-tidy for SUSE Linux 10.0 manually. Maybe the dependencies  
of the PHP packages do allow, that you can install php-tidy of SL  
10.1 only and stick with your SL 10.0 PHP. Give it a try.

Hope this helps,
