    Question repositories, updating alias column

    hello,

    the result of :

    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    gives an alias column for repositories , which alias i'd like to update easily.

    Is there a way that i can access the alias from yast ?

    How can change it easily from console ?

    Thanks

    sure, just open YaST > Software Repositories, and a new window named
    "Configured Software Repositories" will open

    then highlight each repo one by one, click on the "Edit" button, and in
    the new pop-up (named "Server & Directory") just change the "Repository
    Name" block to what you want the alias to be...then click "Ok" on the
    "Server & Directory" pop-up, and move to the next repo..

    when all repos have the name/alias you want, press the "Ok" on the YaST
    "Configured Software Repositories" pane

    check man zypper....look for the info on renamerepo or modifyrepo where
    you will find a few commands and examples like:
    Code:
    renamerepo (nr) <alias|name|#|URI> <new-alias>
    $ zypper nr 8 myrepo
    modifyrepo (mr) <options> <alias|name|#|URI> ...
    modifyrepo (mr) <options> <--all|--remote|--local|--medium-type>
    but the YaST way seems easier, to me.

    Default Re: repositories, updating alias column

    in my repos aliases were completely different than the names i gave in yast, the way you described above, in fact sometimes they fit, sometimes they don't.
    i just renamed all the aliases from console

    eg :

    Code:
     
    > zypper lr -d
        #  | Alias                              |     Nom                                              | Activé |     Rafraîchir | Priorité | Type   |     URI                                                                                    | Service

    welllllll.....hmmmmmmm, i just looked at mine and can't figure out
    exactly what is actually going on.....but, i can see that the
    instructions i gave (for yast) don't yield the results i *expected*

    i can't look at that jumbled up mess...just use "zypper lr" it gives
    non-folding lines..

    in my opinion there should be an alias field in yast so that repo's name management is made easier

    No. With yast you only have access to the name, the alias is adjusted
    automatically following some unknown rules. To change the alias you have
    to use zypper.

    Or you can easily edit the files in /etc/zypp/repos.d/ using vi or your
    favorite editor. The one in square brackets is the alias.
