Thread: zypper can't install kdepim3 sources

  1. #1

    Default zypper can't install kdepim3 sources

    Any idea what to do here?

    zypper si kdepim3
    Reading installed packages...

    The following source package is going to be installed:
    kdepim3


    Overall download size: 13.9 M. After the operation, additional 14.2 M will be used.
    Continue? [YES/no]:
    Installing source package kdepim3-3.5.9-53.1
    Media source 'http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.0/repo/oss' does not contain the desired medium

    I want to hack kmail to get rid of the "doesn't respect umask and makes attachments and opened files RO" problem.

    Cheers,

    TT

    You are doing a source pkg install so you most likely will need to add the applicable repo:

    http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.0/repo/src-oss/

    Ok, I see but I am not sure I understand how add this repo properly.

    trying this:

    zypper ar Index of /distribution/11.0/repo/src-oss source_oss

    gets me this:

    zypper si kdepim3
    Error building the cache database:
    Cannot determine type for repository source_oss2.
    Warning: Disabling repository 'source_oss' because of the above error.

    Trying this:

    zypper ar Index of /distribution/11.0/repo/src-oss/suse source_oss

    gets me this (again):

    zypper si kdepim3
    Reading installed packages...

    The following source package is going to be installed:
    kdepim3


    Overall download size: 13.9 M. After the operation, additional 14.2 M will be used.

    Tried adding the repos follwing the instructions here:

    Add Package Repositories to YaST - openSUSE
    Package Repositories - openSUSE

    but I still get this error:

    zypper si kdepim3
    Reading installed packages...

    The following source package is going to be installed:
    kdepim3


    Overall download size: 13.9 M. After the operation, additional 14.2 M will be used.

    Is this a problem with at my end or is the repo broken?
