Thread: zypper mirrors?

  1. #1

    Default zypper mirrors?

    Hi,

    Just wondering if anyone knows how to setup mirrors for all repos in zypper?

    I remember doing this with smarrt years ago. But, I cant seem to find any documentation online for zypper.

    Regards
    Aubrey.

    Not possible.

    The download server is in fact an automated system to provide us with
    mirrors; we do not download from opensuse anything but metadata, the
    contents are downloaded from mirrors near us.

    Thus zypper doesn't have a method to configure a list of mirrors. You can
    configure only one server per repo, and if this is not the brain, then you
    get no redundancy mirrors.

    Only one server per repo is possible.

    When
    Code:
    man zypper
    does not produce the online documentation for zypper, there is something broken in your installation of zypper.

    and it's often the best option, because it's the documentation for the
    exact version installed on that system.

    Agree with both your remarks. Why searchiing for documentation somewhere on the Internet when it is simply there on your system?

    And when you want a HTML version, use #zypper in Konqueror's address field.

    There is a page named something like "zypper revealed"... or "zypper
    cheatsheet" at opensuse.
