    Question Which repository for LibreOffice on my 11.2?

    Hello,

    in this days I'm receiving a lot of warnings about connection with software repositories. The last one I've received 20 minutes ago:

    Problem connecting to a software source.
    Details:
    File '/repodata/repomd.xml' not found on medium 'http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/OpenOffice.org:/STABLE/openSUSE_11.2/'


    My OpenOffice suite has changed to LibreOffice 3.3.1, but now I have a problem... which is the repository URL for LibreOffice working on openSUSE 11.2? I cannot find it...

    Thanks for any help

    (please, don't tell me that I should upgrade to 11.3...)

    As support on 11.2 stopped about two weeks ago, the repos are one by one switched off I guess.

    Hello hcvv,

    I think you're right...
    I'm receiving other notifications concerning other repositories... I'm little disappointed 'cause I was spending a lot of time to make 11.2 working... ok... that's life (of software)...

    In future I will try to upgrade, but not now... I prefer not to spend my life in front of PC upgrading software that will never end... I prefer go with bicycle and spend my time with my family.

    Anyway, thank you for your answer!

    11.2 is EOL, so yes, you should upgrade to at least 11.3. That's why
    you're having problems finding the repositories for 11.2 updates -
    they're no longer available on the official sites any more.

    That, unfortunately (for some) is the way the PC world is, regardless of
    the operating system you use. Since new security vulnerabilities are
    always being discovered, there are always updates/upgrades that need to
    be applied.

    You can use http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Evergreen
    and keep your 11.2 alive. You will not have all repositories available for
    newer versions and if you want to use libreoffice you need to install it
    maybe without repository, but libreoffice offers generic rpm's
    http://www.libreoffice.org/download/

    Change your main repositories to
    http://download.opensuse.org/evergreen/11.2/
    ftp://ftp5.gwdg.de/pub/opensuse/disc...11.2/repo/oss/
    ftp://ftp5.gwdg.de/pub/opensuse/disc.../repo/non-oss/
    ftp://ftp5.gwdg.de/pub/opensuse/disc...11.2/repo/oss/
    ftp://ftp5.gwdg.de/pub/opensuse/disc...d/update/11.2/
    ftp://ftp5.gwdg.de/pub/opensuse/disc...n/packman-11.2
    http://packman.mirrors.skynet.be/pub...vergreen_11.2/

    and remove the repositories you have now (they are no longer there).

    I want to add, since yesterday night I tested it in a virtual machine, that
    when you switch your 11.2 to evergreen you will automatically get
    libreoffice if you run "zypper up"!
