    What happened to Packman Repo? I haven't been able to access it in a couple days.

    losingle & sambooka, you must specify your openSUSE version. For openSUSE 11.3, use the following link:

    "http://packman.unixheads.com/suse/11.3/"

    Thank You,

    I just did an update from the packman.unixheads.com repo. No problem with reaching it.

    The unixheads-mirror will be taken down soon, though.

    However, there are still enough mirrors left. Packman is far from being "dead".

    Simple situation.
    All OpenSuSE 11.3 machines in the world (or at least a very large part) are all configured to point to one Packman Repo mirror in Belgium and that mirror has been taken down.

    To fix your problem:
    1. Add the OpenSuSE Community Repo link to Packman as usual to at least obtain the correct repo mirror path.
    2. Look up an alternative Packman repo mirror elsewhere in the world, preferably geographically close to where you are.
    3. Edit the Packman Repository Source entry with your new server, remember it should not include the prefix (eg http://)
    4. Save.

    Happy hunting.
