    Default Suse 10.1 Online-/Software-Update broken!?

    Hello,

    I have Opensuse 10.1 on a laptop, as far as I can tell with all updates up to about four weeks ago. Originally, the system came from a DVD, but meanwhile I have entered several update servers respectively repos in "Yast - Installation Source", e.g., http://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/suse/update/10.1 ,
    http://download.suse.com/update/10.1 ,
    http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/mozilla/SuSE_Linux_10.1.

    For some time now both "Yast - Online Update" and "Yast - Software Management" behave strangely. Neither do updates seem to be installed, nor are new packages installed that I select. In both cases something seems to be downloaded, yet at the end all that is shown is "Setting up linker cache - Finishing SuSEconfig - Done." There used to be more lines such as "running xyz.config".

    What is wrong here? How can it be fixed?

    In your reply please be explicit since I do not have deep knowledge of Linux.

    Thank you for your help.

    I expect there will be more useful replies that mine -- just passing -- but perhaps the support for 10.1 has finished. The Suse 10.1 support cycle ran for 2 years. I can't accurately remember but it was released circa mid 2005. So the support should cease in mid 07?

    Have you considered installing openSUSE 10.3 0r 11.0?

    I had originally written:

    "I see you are up early swerdna! Been downloading 11 have we?"

    But then thought it best not to be cheeky at this hour.

    I will wait a while, buy a disk then run an 11 sandbox for a while. Upgrades are a tough gig for me as I'm heavily customised.

    Sweet dreams for you tonight (maybe)!

    As Swerdna and Watagan stated.
