    careful Carl, (check the full thread) he wants to set up a local repo
    server to feed 10,000 users...well, not even that...he actually wants
    no user involvement in keeping all those 10,000 updated...he wants to
    PUSH updates (and i guess upgrades) from his server to the masses (i
    envision the OP as an administrator of a network of net-cafes with
    locked-down machines he is calling "terminals")

    i had thought he could get YOU to do the work at the 'terminals', but
    i guess not--there MUST be a way to push, but i have no idea how..

    do you?

    nntp or bad about KDE4! :-)

    Wow, thanks for the answers {:

    So, let me report my advance... or better, my actual status, 'cuz I think it's getting very confusing reading all the topic. And sorry for the 'terminal' thing, it's kinda a language slang, I think. I'll use 'clients' for those pcs now.

    Btw, I had it working way easier than before thought ._.


    I have 3 pcs: 1 server, 2 clients. [I had a second client working just to be sure]

    Server is running nfs server, clients are running nfs client.

    nfs is working fine. All the files in the 'shared' folder at server are showing up on the 2 clients.
    This was the only way I could make zypper to add the local repository, with a

    Code:
    zypper ar /folder/ local
    command.

    Therefore, the other repositories were deleted on clients, so they can only connect to my local server.


    So, I succeeded? Almost!

    I added 3 rpms to my folder, to feed zypper. Those are: openOffice, Adobe Reader and nfs-kernel-server. [For test purposes].

    Result: Clients can only 'see' nfs-kernel-server, even after cache clean and refresh.

    Why?

    I read some articles about zypper and thought that he could install those 'non-official' packages for SuSE, so why can't it install/see the other packages [openOffice and Adobe Reader]?



    Even if this need to use command lines for zypper, that is nothing that a cron can manage, right?

    ...right?


    And a curiosity: why this only works after a firewall stop on both server and client?
    Even after opening 2049 ports, it dont let nfs work without the stop.


    I am really thankful for the attention you people are giving to me.

    Wait, do you want to make a local repository?

    One which can make available non-official packages.

    Let me try to explain how this will work:

    There is the main server, with the official repositories [for install purposes] and non-official [like pdf reader, third parties softwares and our 'company' own software].

    About other 30 'second-level' servers scattered around the country will connect to this main server, copying it's packages.

    Another quantity of 'third-level' servers will connect to them [depends on the region, we can count max 400 for each, I think]. Packages are again copied.

    Then, finally, the clients will connect to the 'third-level' servers, which really varies in quantity. [The one which I work have about 200 clients, but there is those with less and with more].

    The 'third-level' servers will be the local ones, which I am testing now with the local repository thing.

    For the others [Main Server to SecondLevel Server, and SecondLevel server to ThirdLevel server], I am studying rsync for the purpose. Any better idea?

    But oh well, I am kinda more focused on making this local-repository-with-non-official-and-third-parties-packages to work.

    Hi
    When the repository 'local' was added, did you specify as a 'plain rpm'
    one? I have quite a few non-oss and oss ones in a local repository
    without issues.

    I would use rsync too

    first make the directory public to the clients, copy all rpm files to it
    (you can use subdirectories too) and then use createrepo (for example:
    createrepo -v /localrepo)
    Supose you make it available at ftp://myserver.com/localrepo, so you
    have to add it to each client (zypper ar ftp://myserver.com/localrepo alias)

    Hi
    Shouldn't have to worry about that these days, works fine with a plain
    rpm directory.
