    Default Open SuSe 11.1 Software Repositories

    Hallo,
    Fast jedes mal wenn man über Yast nachträglich Software installiert benötigt man die SuSe Installations DVD im Laufwerk.
    Gibt es denn eine möglichkeit den Inhalt dieser DVD auf die Festplatte zu Kopieren sodass bei einer Programminstallation
    die Daten von der Festplatte geladen werden können?
    Oder gibt es im Internet Quellen?
    Bitte um eure Hilfe
    Vielen Dank

    Hello,
    Almost every time when you post on Yast software installed you need the SuSe installation DVD in the drive.
    Is there a possibility the contents of this DVD to the hard copy so that when a program installation
    the data from the disk can be loaded?
    Or there are sources on the Internet?
    Asking for your help
    Thank you very much

    I am not sure, I never tried this, but what if you go to the YAST control center and the software repositories and remove the DvD entry from that list. Then copy the contents of the DvD to a folder and add that folder to the software repositories.
    Once you install a modem, the government can look into your computer and watch everything you do! That's why every night before I go to bed, I turn the monitor to the wall.

    Spot on with that also if you want you can use k3b or other burning software
    to just copy it as an iso, this can be used also from yast as a repo and
    will be mounted automagically for you.

    This is handy if you start with say the CD version ( if you have no DVD
    drive ) and d/load the dvd iso, you can just use that without unpacking it.
