    Question Yast cannot connect to host - any host...

    Hi,

    i have a big Problem.
    I (still) use Suse 10.2, mainly because my Yast seems unable to connect to any host.
    If I want to add repositores, or do anything really, by which Yast has to connect to the web, I allways get the same error massage:
    Unable to reach host.

    I do not think it has anything to do with my internet, because Firefox and all the other programs, which need to reach the internet are able to.

    Any Ideas?

    System: SuSe10.2
    Yast Version. 2.14
    Internet connection via DSL6000

    Greets, Rebecca

    Are you able to download a dvd if so you can upgrade using one.
    You will need to do a fresh install only keeping your /home
    The dvd is here
    Core 2 Duo 3.16GHz, 8GB DDR2, 3.5TB, GeForce 9600 GT, Amilo LCD 26", OS 11.1 x86_64, KDE4.2.4 (2)

    These messages would also be displayed when you have the wrong hosts in your repos. Did you check them? You can always use the same URLs in a browser to see if you get something.

    Hi hcw,

    do you mean whether I spelled the URLs correctly?
    Yes, I always checked them on Firefox, and they worked just fine there.


    Hi geffro,

    thats a good idea... hadn't thought of that before...
    well I'll try, and if it wont work I'll come back crying fpr help once again. XD

    Thanks, so far.
    greets Rebecca
