    Default Yast problems with openSUSE 11.0 (X86-64)

    Hi!

    I apologize if I chose the wrong forum for my question (I am a newbie here).

    I relocated to a different university, and the OS they put on my computer is openSUSE 11.0. It is Intel Core Duo, if that matters.

    Currently I have two problems with yast:
    1. When trying to install the latest version of the Evolution e-mail client plus the Evolution-Exchange plugin, yast complained that it could not access several repositories, such as:
    "
    Download failed:
    Download (curl) error for 'http://www2.ati.com/suse/11.0/repodata/repomd.xml'
    Error code: Connection failed
    Error message: couldn't connect to host
    "

    I tried to skip, but similar errors came up with other repositories.

    Eventually yast seemed to find a repository that works.
    After searching for "evolution", I found that evolution is in fact installed, and I found a not-yet-installed evolution-exchange plugin, which I then tried to install.

    Again some errors, again some repository eventually worked.

    However, when trying to set up Evolution, it seemed not to now "Exchange".

    2. This is the current output of top:
    PID USER PR NI VIRT RES SHR S %CPU %MEM TIME+ COMMAND
    20068 root 35 15 221m 60m 14m D 16 3.0 474:21.67 y2base

    20067 root 35 15 221m 60m 14m R 11 3.0 483:56.88 y2base
    ...

    In other words, there are many instances of y2base, I don't know what they are doing, but it makes my machine useless for work.

    How can I stop y2base?

    Best regards,
    Simon

    Quit the updater applet in the systray.
    Don't let it start at boot.
    Disable the ati repo for now - In Yast Software Repositories

    re-boot and open yast software Management
    search for the packages you want to install and check the box by the package name you want.
    accept

    Thank you for your quick answer!

    I don't know if I understand correctly. What I tried was:
    * Go to Applications -> System -> Configuration -> Install Software
    * open Yast
    * Disallow automatic update
    * Disable ati repo

    Then I re-booted.
    Afterwards I tried to open Yast again - but there was a message
    "
    Error
    Download failed:
    Download (curl) error for 'http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.0/repo/non-oss/suse/repodata/repomd.xml':
    Error code: Connection failed
    Error message: couldn't connect to host
    "

    Now I clicked OK

    Next message:
    "
    Cannot access installation media
    (Medium 1).
    Check whether the server is accessible.
    "

    I chose "Skip".

    Next, an error message "Download failed", but this time for 'http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.0/repo/oss/content'

    => OK and skip

    Next download error for 'http://ftp.skynet.be/pub/packman/suse/11.0/repodata/repomd.xml'

    And so on. After further download errors I got
    "
    Warning
    There was an error in the repository initialization.
    Valid metadata not found at specified URL(s)
    History:
    - SKIP request: User-requested skipping of a file
    - Download (curl) error for 'http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/makoenig:/science/openSUSE_11.0/repodata/repomd.xml':
    Error code: Connection failed
    Error message: couldn't connect to host
    "

    Again, I did "OK", and Yast opens.

    Trying to install evolution-exchange, I again got various download errors. After accepting the errors and skipping, it seemed to install.

    But, alas, after starting Evolution, it still seemed to be impossible to connect with the Microsoft Exchange things that my university unfortunately chose to use.

    I hope that the above description was detailed enough. What did I do wrong?

    Best regards,
    Simon

    I said quit the updater applet in the systray in the panel.

    Please can you post the result of this from a terminal:

    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    This may also help

    I guess (being a non-native speaker) I did not understand the word "systray" (which in fact is in my dictionaries). But after a google search, I guess you refer to the green icon just beside the clock. I closed it now.

    But then, I don't understand how to not let it start at reboot (this is why I disabled automatic updates).

    Result of zypper lr -d is:

    At first sight: disable debug repo, enable repo-oss.

    When you click the updater and quit I thought it asked if you want it to start at boot, if not right click and configure it that way. It's a PITA.

    Make the changes I have shown in red.

    It did not ask me, but right click and configure worked, thanks!

    I then made the changes shown by you in red, and rebooted.

    Surpizing (at least for me) that there are two new lines "Main Repository (NON-OSS)" and "Main Repository (OSS)".

    But I am afraid it still does not work. If I start YaST2 (clicking on "Install Software" and providing the root password), I get "Download failed" for 'http://download.epensuse.org/distribution/11.0/repo/non-oss/suse/repodata/repomd.xml', and about 7 similar download errors.

    A non-educated guess: Can it be that the computer services here at the university in Galway/Ireland block the connection to the repositories (perhaps by some firewall settings)?

    Best regards,
    Simon

    You did not notice I had removed repo 4 and 5. Check again:
    And you missed the Updates repo priority to 20

    @S_King

    It seems to me that you are behind a http proxy. If so, you have to configure it. Using YAST, for instance. Also, I think you will have to logoff and logon for changes to take effect.

    Check with your local network person(s) at university for proxy settings.
