Thread: Mirrors for 11.3 repositories?

  1. #1

    Question Mirrors for 11.3 repositories?

    Hi there,

    I can see that some of the 11.3 repos are already gone. (E.g., Contrib)

    When I used Ubuntu, there were servers where the repositories for older versions were still available (although seemingly somewhat slower, but who cared).

    Aren't there similar "archive" mirrors for OpenSuSE?

    (Actually at my workplace we still use 11.3, and I wouldn't like to upgrade until they do, so that we can synchronize about problems -- like installing software for remote access, etc.)

    Hi
    Look in the EOL Mirrors;

    ftp://ftp5.gwdg.de/pub/opensuse/discontinued/

    But mind, you will not find all the repos.

    Default AW: Mirrors for 11.3 repositories?

    I am not using those (because I am not able to make security patches on my own) but it think this are (some of the) the images/mirrors of the the (not longer updated) repositories you were looking for:
    openSUSE wiki: Mirrors > EOL mirrors
    ->
    gwdg.de:
    /pub/opensuse/discontinued
    with
    /pub/opensuse/discontinued/distribution/11.3/repo/non-oss
    /pub/opensuse/discontinued/distribution/11.3/repo/oss
    /pub/opensuse/discontinued/update/11.3

    (Maybe someone who is using the end-of-live openSUSE 11.3 still may be able to confirm it.)

    But this will be only the main (oss/non-oss) repositories and the update repository.

    And it seems to me some mirrows have also not deleted the old 11.3 repositories ether:
    example given:
    Index of /pub/opensuse/repositories/Printing/openSUSE_11.3

    See also/compare the discussions on topics alike this:
    [opensuse-buildservice] openSUSE:Tools dropped 11.3 repo already?
    The Evergreen January 2012 Archive by thread

    Maybe the admin on your workplace had done some copying via rsync or so when the old repositories were still "alive"?

    Regards
    Martin

    Well, that's not much help, I'm afraid...

    Index of /pub/opensuse/discontinued has only the oss and non-oss repositories, but it seems to me that they are still available on download.opensuse.org as well. (And there are plenty of other repos I would need.)

    ftp://ftp.hosteurope.de/mirror/ftp.s...ontinued/i386/ is only up to 10.0

    opensuse.jessen.ch - openSUSE torrents doesn't seem to offer any repositories anymore

    So I'm stuck without Contrib, KDE:Extra etc. (More specifically, without Knemo. )

    One point there for Ubuntu. (I.e., if they still do offer legacy repos as they did a few years ago when I was using it.) Maybe I'm just spoiled, but I would have thought that to make the old repos available wouldn't have been such a great cost. Whatever.

    Open Build Service moves on, there was discussion on the mailing lists
    as well....

    It's up to the repository maintainers to add the 'DISCONTINUED' build
    source back in and re create, so suggest you ask them or build yourself
    on OBS?

    you were free to download and store every byte of every 11.3 repo when
    that version was supported and its repos up and running..

    why didn't you? (the end of life date was well known for _years_ in
    advance..

    and, if you had and wanted to, you could have made all of the 11.3 repos
    available to the general public...until _you_ decided to no longer pay
    for the hosting band width..

    and, you can set up a mirror today of 11.4 and 12.1, and when they too
    go non-supported you could continue to make them available to all-comers...

    personally, i think that is a GREAT idea! what will be the address of
    your repos once 11.4 goes non-supported? (i rather like 11.4, see sig)
