Thread: what to do when download.opensuse.org unreachable

    Default what to do when download.opensuse.org unreachable

    At the moment download.opensuse.org is unreachable for me (and also for IsUp.Me -> Check if your website is down or up?).

    So what to do if you urgently want to install some software? As described on openSUSE:Mirrors - openSUSE
    download.opensuse.org selects the best mirror for you. Well, if it does not respond we have to do it manually.

    Go to openSUSE Download Mirrors - Overview (luckily that seems to use different infrastructure and it is
    reachable now) and pick a suitable mirror.

    The URL can be changed in yast --> software --> software repositories for the repo you need.
    Note that the URL on the mirrors can be longer than on download.opensuse.org. I used the /distribution/ part
    of the URL to "synchronize"

    And maybe it might be a good idea to revert the change when download.opensuse.org is up again. Mirrors might
    change in the future.

    What to do? Wait. No? Wait more :-)

    And I downloaded something minutes ago, it works.

    I would instead edit /etc/zypp/repos.d/reponame, which doesn't force a full refresh.
