I recently wanted to install the latest version of monodevelop. I did the following:
  1. Visited
    software.opensuse.org: Search
  2. Typed monodevelop as the search term
  3. I clicked "Show other versions"
  4. I clicked the "openSUSE Factory" group
  5. I clicked the "1 click install" link for v2.8.5
  6. The yast install process got underway, but complained with the following popup:

    An error occurred while initializing the software repository.
    openSUSE:Factory: [|] Valid metadata not found at specified URL(s)
    - [|] Repository type can't be determined.

    Try again?
  7. When I click "Yes", it allows me to edit the url, which is currently:Index of /factory/repo/oss/suse

Anyone know why this problem is occuring? I am using OpenSuse 11.4.
