    Question Clean openSUSE 11.4 install, zypper update and yast update thow permission denied

    Hi everyone,

    I'm mainly a Debian user and wanted to use suse for an installation because of certain packages for web application. Anyway:

    Brand new install, downloaded from openSUSE site yesterday, selected server during install (i.e. cli, no gui), network set appropriately and can ping to the web (including local country repos). It's running virtually on VMWare vSphere (ESXi 4.1.0).

    Tried to run zypper update and go into software manager in yast and all repos, the original and local repos say:

    Code:
    Permission to access 'http:// ....REPO Address...' denied
    Please help... need to be able to install packages, otherwise I'll just have to go back to a Debian flavor... not what I want.

    Thanks

    are you behind a proxy, or on a (say) corporate/school/etc LAN?

    can you ping (say) download.opensuse.org

    or, connect to an anon ftp site?

    please show us the output of entering the following into a terminal

    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    and copy/paste the output back to this thread using the instructions
