    hello everyone i am a newb when it comes to linux servers. anyway i am trying to install novells mobility pack and every time i try and install this product through add-on product media in yast it gives me this error:

    "dir:///root/Desktop/data/
    Unknown Error: Ivalid path name
    component '/root/Desktop/data// suse/setup/descr/Novell_Data_Synchronizer_Mobility_Pack-1.31-16.1.x86_64.pat.gz"

    You wouldn't happen to have a space after the "data" would you?

    Also, what happens if you specify the directory as just /root/Desktop/data ?

    No there is no space after data just right before the suse folder. "..data// suse/.."

    if i specify it as that folder it gives the same message.

    Not sure what to do.. i read something in the novell mobility install guide and it was referring to suse 11 so maybe that is the issue?

    Maybe try posting something here:

    DS: Mobility Pack

    That's Novell's forum for the Mobility Pack...

    But I'm guessing that when you try to setup the repository name, either a space is being added accidentally to the end of the specified directory, or you may need to leave out the last "/" after data. Someone in the above forums might know better though..

    Hi
    Your in the wrong forum, suggest you head over to the Novell forums and specifically the mobility sub forum;
    DS: Mobility Pack

    Hi
    If not, then I suggest raising an SR or contacting Novell support direct.
