    Question PackageKit Error repo-not-available...on http://www.opensuse-guide.org/repo/11.2

    Sind a few days I do experience the following PackageKit error:

    Code:
    PackageKit Error repo-not-available: File '/repodata/repomd.xml' not found on medium 'http://www.opensuse-guide.org/repo/11.2'
    I googled a number of similar posts but no solution/answer so far.

    Any idea?

    Cheers,
    Hardy

    11.2 is end of life for a few weeks now, most repositories are already
    deleted.
    Consider to update to 11.3 or 11.4.

    If you do not want to update disable the repos which are no longer there
    and have a look at Evergreen

    Thanks a lot to both of you! Sorry for my ignorance.

    And I definitively will have a look at "evergreen", that sounds very interesting to me. Extra thanks to martin!

    Using evergreen will limit your options a little as far as the Build Service repos are concerned
    But at least you have Packman: Index of /suse/Evergreen_11.2/

    I want to add a little information to avoid misunderstandings. As caf4926
    correctly said you will only have updates for the main oss repository and
    for some parts of packman (this is also what the link says which I posted).
    This does of course not mean that you loose an application you already have,
    but you cannot add new programs which were only available via the community
    repositories if you stick to 11.2 evergreen and you will not get updates for
    such programs.
    The benefit is that evergreen gives you the opportunity not to be under too
    much pressure while you decide when you will update to a newer version.

    Thanks again to caf4926 and martin_helm!

    My openSUSE 11.2 system is mainly used as a file server at home and also for some ffmpeg conversions or CD/DVD ripping jobs. Insofar I believe that upgrading is not that urgent as long as I can get some security- and kernel-updates from the evergreen repo.

    However, I was wondering whether it would make sense to purchase a commercial SUSE server license which would allow for enjoying a much longer support period (but I don't have a clue about the costs involved yet ....).

    Cheers,
    Hardy
