Thread: dissapointment after overwhelming exitement with YAST

    Exclamation dissapointment after overwhelming exitement with YAST

    I couldn't wait at first to install and get my hands on opensuse 11.0 and after the install every looked great and my first step was to check out the supposingly improved package manager... So there I go click on computer and click on install software... As this was the fist time it was updating the repository and took 2h30min just to do that... After than tried installing gimp and the speed was really bad... it was only giving me 2% of average download speed... I don't know if this is known issue but earlier today when I was hanging out in the suse irc a whole bunch of people complained about it too...

    Is there a fix or a solution to this?

    Sometimes, just waiting for a while before trying to update again helps. You can also configure yast to use mirrors:

    Repositories - openSUSE-Community

    Mirrors Released Version - openSUSE

    i tried a couple times... between couple tries spent over 15 min but that didn't seem to help...

    but i'll try the mirrors see if that changes anything

    Blaming Yast for slow morrors is unfair IMHO.
    Sometimes they are oveloaded sometimes not.

    Apart form the very first days that opensuse came out,when i had very big issues with slo download,never had an problem again!!!

    i thought the new yast mirrored to the best location itself for some reason... and I have never experienced a decent speed in yast... i think smart package manager gave me a better speed in 10.0... but for now i can't the mirrors to load... i think i am using the wrong addresses... i'd appreciate a link i can just copy paste

    Go to Yast - Repositories
    You should have at least oss, non-oss, updates
    add url's in there from the mirrors list

    i have about 15 different repos on mine, and i usually get around 500+ kb/s on average. I have no complaints, Opensuse made me completely switch over to linux. i still have windows for my zune but i never boot it unless i have to.

    OpenSuse 9/10.

    My only issues are probably still noobie issues such as libs missing and not being able to make files etc because of the above.

    I tried adding mirrors but it keeps giving me this error
    "Download (curl) error for 'http://ftp.free.fr/mirrors/ftp.opensuse.org/opensuse/distribution/11.0/repo/oss/license.tar.gz':
    Error code: User abort
    Error message: Callback aborted"

    Aslo I was wondering if I add the mirrors does it matter if the original repos are still in there or is recommended to turn them off?
