    Unhappy newbie problem with installing torrent clients *sorry*

    Hey guys!

    I just switched to Linux and I'm still not so familiar with the console commands, so I use mainly YaST to install new software, which worked fine until I tried to download a new torrent-client (ktorrent kind of sux) and I always get this error message during installation/ downloading:
    Code:
    Subprocess failed. Error: RPM failed: error: open of /var/cache/zypp/packages/openSUSE failed: No such file or directory
    error: open of 11.1-0/suse/i586/ktorrent-lang-3.1.5-1.19.i586.rpm failed: No such file or directory
    So I know this might be ridiculously easy to solve, but I still have no clue

    Thank's in advance!

    If i'm not wrong that's because you have DVD setup as a repository and You haven't got the DVD in the drive? It's best to leave the iso image somewhere on the disk and set it as a repo (only DVD image of course).

    Check if you have the DVD set as repo (should say something like /dev/sr0 ) in software repositories in YaST.

    Ah! if I check software repositories --> repositories there is no local path like /dev/.. only ftp and http sources... I also used the Online-Installation method were it downloaded all the data during installation (took like 5 hours ).
    So what do do now? should I download the full iso file?? Is there any other way to get those missing files?

    Thanks!

    Maybe go to software repositories and refresh them all?

    I did...still no sign of it and installation isn't working either (same error occurs)...
    ****! I had to reinstalled the system yesterday again, because I couldn't get this graphic card problem fixed,don't wanna do it again... Isn't there any chance of getting those missing files?

    Thanks again!

    You can always download it with a web browser from the repo?

    Ktorrent is actually one of the best if not the best, doesn't take much memory, has support for ip blocking and encrypting packet headers, has a scheduler, doesn't take much memory.
    For gnome transmission is good but i have bad experience with it (lost about 8GB of data)

    Mhhh...okay...But the thing with ktorrent is, that it won't start downloading!Whenever I import a torrent, it always stays on "Stopped" even if I click on "resume"... tried messing around with the configuration...didn't help

    Hmmm, i never had problems like this. Could you tell me what desktop environment You got (KDE, GNOME), what version, what repos You use (zypper lr as sudo).

    Ok, disable repo number 4 and 6. From repo #4 you only need libdvdcss for playing DVD's. Repo #6 looks to me like a DVD drive repo so disable it. After that go to Software Management, change to repositories look, go to packman and update unconditionally. That should do it.
