Thread: Repositiory directory problem.

  1. #1

    Default Repositiory directory problem.

    Okay. So here is the issue.

    I installed 11.4 from dvd located on a usb. When I open yast and it attempts to update my repos it states the following:

    Cannot access installation media
    hd:///?device=/dev/sdb1
    (Medium 1).
    Check whether the server is accessible.
    In the details:
    Empty destination in URI: hd:///?device=/dev/sdb

    SDB1 is my USB - which is no longer plugged in. I know this can be fixed by $ edit /boot/grub/device.map

    I am rather fearful of poking around in there because after trying once before I caused a catastrophic system's failure which required a total reinstall. =/

    I clearly want my repos on SDA6, I just have no clue how to fix this. I checked google and a number of other places before I came here.

    Disregard. I fixed it.

    I went into the yast repos and found the SDB1 and disabled it. Then it defaulted to sda6.

    After installation, the install media is usualy disabled by the install process because, with a running system, you only need the network repos (OSS, non-OSS and Update). When the install didn't do it, disable them yourself (YaST > Software > Software repositories). You do not need the media anymore because everything is now on-line in it's most up-to-date status (important for security).
