    Default YaST and caching

    I'm experiencing some problems with YaST. I live in Ethiopia where the internet connection is very poor. Now i need to download the kernel-source for some project, it's 50 MB large. Now the download timed out 3 times, and everytime it starts from the beginning. Is there any way to let YaST cache the download?

    thanks

    Hi
    Use wget (see man wget to add options) to get the rpm from the
    mirror, then just use rpm -Uhv to install and run SuSEconfig when
    completed.
