    Question Packman repository?

    hi folks, I'm trying to add the packman repo to opensuse 11.3, but I'm confused. I know where to add them, but I'm not sure which one.
    I go to PackMan - Links2Linux but from there I'm stumped. What do I add? Should I go under the repo instructions for Debian/Ubuntu and get the urls from there?

    Here is how
    How to add a repo in Terminal

    You can always use a different URL as the one here is from europe
    a US Eg would be:

    Code:
    zypper ar -f http://packman.unixheads.com/suse/11.3/ packman
    Leap 15.1_KDE

    I thought unixheads was gone?

    Most of us have moved to German packman mirrors.
    I am using packman.jacobs-university.de for instance.

    Community repos are easily added via YAST under Software> Software Repositories. It's all done from a very non confusing menu.

    It does. Several weeks ago it vannished however. Having to have had change my packeman repo away from that mirror at that time along with others I was speaking from experience. The story then was the person who sponsors those mirrors was finished and moving on to other things. They must have had a change of heart. I was quite thankful for the free mirroring and actually graced them with a donation via paypal at one point.
