    Default suse 11.0 - howto make yast forget install-CD

    Installed RC1 (11.0). [Install is nice...much
    smoother/nicer than in 10.3]

    But, Yast constantly tells me to insert the original
    install/Live CD, when adding software. Is there
    some way to tell it to bypass looking on the CD
    and just go straight to web-repos?

    TIA...

    Dave

    Start the "Software Repositories" module within YaST and disable the CD repository.

    There isn't one...they all are 'http:...' URLs.

    Please copy + paste the results of zypper sl so we can see what repositories you have enabled.

    Have you tried mounting the CD/DVD-rom in VB before booting?

    Found the problem...something in the caches.

    Did a
    zypper clean -m
    zypper clean -M
    ypper clean -a
    followed by
    zypper refresh

    and now it doesn't ask for the LiveCD when installing from
    factory-OSS
