    Default If automated online repositories configuration fails

    It happened twice to me, so I guess it can happen to everybody.
    After installing 11.0 from DVD, I wasn't offered a full online repositories configuration. Rather, the system configured itself with the 3 basic repos (OSS, NON-OSS, Updates).
    That means that if you want to add the extra repositories, you have to do it manually. It can be a lot of work, as the list of extra repos is very long:

    Package Repositories - openSUSE

    Additional YaST Package Repositories - openSUSE

    So what to do?
    This is what worked for me:
    I deleted the already configured repos (the 3 basic ones)
    And presto, The Updater applet offered me to configure the repos, and everything (well, almost) was available for me to choose from.

    Edit: I believe you must remove *every* source for this to work, including the DVD. You can easily add it again later.
