    Default Cautiously moving forward -very slowly.

    I have a functioning system. And, despite the frustration of not knowing HOW to do what I NEED to do - I'm moving forward.
    Current issue:
    Repositorries/11.1
    Has instructions to "Just head over to YaST->Software->Software Repositories. Then in the menu: ... hit the Add->Community Repositories and select...
    Main (OSS)
    Main (Non-OSS)
    Packman
    Main Update Repository

    ..from there. Easy :-)"

    EXCEPT when I do that I get an error message
    "Unable to download list of repositories or no repositories defined."

    Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks for your time.

    If you are in the system now, open a terminal and do this

    Code:
    zypper lr -d

    Now please open a terminal and become su and do

    Code:
    zypper mr -d 1
    this will disable the dvd, which you don't need if you have high speed internet

    Now do this:
    Code:
    zypper ref
    then
    Code:
    zypper up
    This will run updates

    I really appreciate the real time assistance!
    I have followed those instructions.
    I'm assuming that I can not proceed to the add repository packman?

    To add packman you need to be su

    Code:
    zypper ar http://mirror.geht-schon.de/packman.links2linux.de/suse/11.1/ packman
    Then post your result of this again

    Code:
    zypper lr -d
