    i _think_ he is using a machine translator which is mistranslating
    'directory' with 'repository'..

    of course, i have been wrong.. once!

    (i thought i had made a mistake, but i had not..so! ;-)

    Sorry for my bad English.

    I just want to know why the virtualbox has created this entry and if I keep it.

    Is it possible one of those 1-click install thingers added it? They all add repositories with packages they require, perhaps vbox temporarily adds one that it's meant to delete on completion but didn't?

    I think I'm correct in what I'm about to say, I'm just using what I hope is common sense, but someone more knowledgeable may correct me

    How it got there, who knows, but your question is what you should do about it

    As it's created in a tmp folder jony127 logically it should be safe to remove, but it would be more sensible to disable it and see if you get any issues, but I can't see how you would as once virtualbox is installed and running there is no need for it's repository to be there other than for updates

    If you don't experience any problems after disabling it, to my way of thinking you have pretty much proved it would be safe to delete

    you are talking about openSUSE repositories, the poster is talking about
    a /var/tmp directory (which is incorrectly being termed a "repository")

    he is talking about a directory /var/tmp/TmpDir.NLNiRT, put there by an
    application and not by a one-click..

    while your logic may be correct, it will lead to a not good practice--in
    Linux you should remove /tmp directory contents while the system is
    _not_ running *only*! like during boot, this way: http://tinyurl.com/dz446e

    /var/tmp has a different problem as it is possible the application which
    put files there may expect them to be there after a boot..

    virtualbox created the directory/files because it needed a place to
    temporarily store files it *is* using..

    do *not* delete them while the system is running.

    In the end we do have some real information. As you saw in the mean time DenverD, it is realy about a repository, but it took some time to let the OP list his repositories.

    @jony127
    At last in post#12 !! of this thread you posted your repositories. Please next time you post a problem, do add relevant information from the beginning. Not stories, but computer output!
    It is also only at post #12 that you tell you are using Virual Box. As long as you keep secret to us what you are using/doing/wanting, you can not expect any usefull reply from others.
    Sory, I am a bit naughty to you, but we are all spending our spare time to understand you while you are telling almost nothing.

    And please, next time put computer output between CODE tags: Posting in Code Tags - A Guide.

    And, as you have seen, now we undestand what you mean, several answers are coming forward.

    in list of repos!)

    WOW--WHACKS forehead! duh!!

    i'm off to see the eye doctor...i looked at that list twice, saw a lot
    of little 'problems' (which i didn't comment on since other had) but
    overlooked #2 because i had gotten in the habit of looking at the blue
    URLs (in nntp)...and, since #2 was a local file, it was not in blue

    @jony127: delete repository #2 from the list using YaST or zypper

    sorry it took so long to get you the correct answer!

    by the way, YaST/zypper are usually good at cleaning up their temporary
    files/directories....and, usually only leave one orphaned if the session
    crashed or is killed by the user...

    Well ... The OP had posted his repository list showing the PK_TMP_DIR entry, the dir being the repository source, where we're used to seeing a url not a directory

    In fairness to him he had actually said early on that it was in his yast repository list, I think it was the fact it pointed to a /var/tmp folder confused the issue
