    Default Yet another yast problem

    I am a very NEW user. I used Suse a long time ago when there was no "openSuse". I bought it in a box in Best Buy but have migrated other ways. I gave 11.0 a try and it seems to be very good but I have encountered a problem and I need some help. I am told I have updates but when I try to update I get an error. I hope someone knows how to fix this small problem. The error is as follows:

    Can't provide file './i586/speex-' from repository 'repo-oss'

    I enable a lot of repos upon istallation since I need some other things installed and updated and this may be part of the problem. Any help is appreciated.

    I've experienced some problems with the 'added repos' upon install.

    The main repos are not added properly.
    The added sources are:
    Index of /distribution/11.0/repo/oss
    Index of /distribution/11.0/repo/non-oss

    When you add suse/ at the end it'll all work fine again.

    So it should be:
    Index of /distribution/11.0/repo/oss/suse
    Index of /distribution/11.0/repo/non-oss/suse

    I had the same problems with the predefined repos.

    gavro_gs solution above works fine.

    I made the change but I am still having problems trying to figure out suse. It does work differently than Ubuntu, Mepis, Mint which I have become quite familiar with. I am unable to get my network printer (HP Officjet 7200) properly installed. I cannot get hplip installed which will facilitate installing the printer and I do not know if I correctly fixed the software update problem (although I believe the fix worked I have been unable to prove it at this point). Sorry. I will continue to work for solutions.
