    Default Yast: Install automatic retry?

    Greetings All,

    For whatever reason, I seem to get a large number of checksum errors when installing applications and fixes from YAST. I'm not sure if this is a feature of my ISP, or problems with the various repositories. I can almost always get by these errors by retrying. Sometimes, two or three retries are required, but eventually the error will clear and the package will install.

    For every checksum that occurs, I get a pop-up indicating "Wrong Digest". I then have to select "NO" to not use it, and answer "retry" to the next panel that appears.
    This makes installation of apps and patches VERY tedious.

    Is there some setting that I can tell YAST to automatically retry when an error occurs, or at least retry "x" number of times before pestering me? It would be nice to be able to install stuff without having to babysit.

    I am running SUSE 11.3.

    Thanx in advance

    Rich

    This can also occur when new packages are being uploaded to a repo. But that should be a very occasional thing.
    Just to be sure, please post the output of command below, to be invoked in a terminal window:
    Code:
    zypper lr -d

    It could be a bad mirror.

    Not that I know.

    You could ask the devs. Test the factory version to see if it has the same
    problem, and report it fast so that the problem can be studied before release.

    Or, if it can be determined there is a bad mirror, find it and remove from
    the chain (reporting to... ? Not sure who).
