Thread: CANNOT ACCESS INSTALLATION MEDIA

    Default CANNOT ACCESS INSTALLATION MEDIA

    I am trying to add the repository and coming back with 'Cannot access installation media http\.....' & ' Check whether the server is accessible' error. What is wrong??? How to fix it???

    I am running opensuse 11.2, gnome desktop.

    On another note (not sure if it is somehow related )in order for me to open 'Software Manager' I had to uncheck 'Enabled' for all urls in 'Configured Software Repositories'.

    Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

    First thing to check is that you can connect to the server - can you?

    As it happens, I just ran into this updating my 11.1 64-bit system to
    11.2. The problem turned out to be that I had installed a fairly old
    version of aria2c on 11.1 to use as a download manager, and 11.2 includes
    it - AND uses it as an integral part of the package manager.

    My copy was installed to /usr/local/bin, 11.2's was installed to /usr/
    bin. Mine was first in the path and that created a problem.

    So if you upgraded and had installed aria2c, that might be something to
    check.

    But I'd start with the more obvious "can I connect to the server" - try
    using firefox and see if you can even connect to it.

    Well, try http:// instead of \\

    The reason why all the links are disable is to let me get into the 'software management'.

    Hendersi,

    I did not upgrade the opensuse. It is a fresh install. Yes, I can connect to all the links from firefox. Not sure if it has something to do with it. But, my computer is the part of a company network (running .NET) with lot of security and firewall. And if I want to connect to web pages from firefox it asks me for username and password.

    Kevin,

    I am sorry yes the links are with forward slash http://....I have written them wrong in my first post.

    Any other ideas???

    It sounds like you're using a proxy server - you probably need to
    configure your system to use a proxy.

    In YaST, there is a proxy configuration option - maybe set that and give
    it another try (I don't know for certain that those proxy settings will
    be applied to the online updater, but I am pretty sure they are).
