Thread: Install or remove software packages and manage software...

  1. #1

    Default Install or remove software packages and manage software...

    I'm starting to think that *nothing* on openSUSE that tries to connect to the internet will work. You see, in the midst of trying to get just Adobe Flash Player to install, I opened the package manager but of course got this error:

    Download failed:
    Download (curl) error for 'http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.1/repo/non-oss/content <cuts off here>
    Error code: Connection failed
    Error message: Couldn't resolve host 'download.opensuse.org'
    Great.

    Obviously your browser is working!

    We can work on this but you need to try and understand some basics about repo management. I'm with you in the flash thread and you seem to be struggling a little.

    Where abouts in the world are you? Just general info will do. We can look at using mirrors for the repo's.

    Open software Repositories

    Delete the three enabled repos and we are going to add them back from mirrors url's.

    Here is a link to repo management just in case you get stuck:
    Repository Management - openSUSE Forums

    So now you have deleted the OSS, NON-OSS and UPDATES

    Click ADD.
    Just click NEXT because we are using the URL method which is default.

    Name= UPDATES
    copy and paste this URL in the URL section
    Index of /pub/opensuse/update/11.1

    Now do the same for
    OSS
    Index of /pub/opensuse/distribution/11.1/repo/oss

    NON-OSS
    Index of /pub/opensuse/distribution/11.1/repo/non-oss

    When done OK to finish the changes. Let us know what happens.
