    Default yast

    Hi I am running 11.0 and kde4, since yesterday I cannot download anything through yast, Internet access seems fine with firefox but as soon as I try to download through yast it starts and after a while (5 to 10 mins ) it times out.

    Any help would be great.

    Something with "error" or "timeout" maybe? :-)
    Else the last couple of lines. If the file ain't that big, zip it and send it to me via mail (yes, the mail address is valid).

    hi, i'm new to opensuse forums and i was wondering if this is the right place to ask questions about the wine emulator. i was having a hard time installing it to opensuse 10.2 and i would like to know if it came on opensuse 11. i wanted to know before i started downloading it because i'm switching over from a dual booting system (windows-opensuse) to just opensuse. i need my computer to run windows applications as wellll as linux applications. if anyone could help that would be great.

    instead of tagging on to a non-relevant question, start your own topic. It will get a better response & more will see it
