    Default What are these repositories for?

    OpenSUSE 12.2 – KDE 4.8.5

    I was wondering what the following partially disabled repositories are for:

    - libdvdcss repository - http://opensuse-guide.org/repo/12.2/ (enabled + autorefresh)
    - openSUSE-12.2-Debug - Index of /debug/distribution/12.2/repo/oss (autorefresh)
    - openSUSE-12.2- Update-Debug - Index of /debug/update/12.2 (autorefresh)
    - openSUSE-12.2-Update-Debug-Non-Oss - Index of /debug/update/12.2-non-oss (autorefresh)
    - openSUSE-12.2-Source - Index of /source/distribution/12.2/repo/oss (autorefresh)

    Are they essential, can I delete them or is it better to leave them the way they are now?

    this is the repository to retrieve libdvdcss which is required to be able to watch encrypted movie DVDs, usually needed by kaffeine , vlc and many others.

    - openSUSE-12.2-Debug - Index of /debug/distribution/12.2/repo/oss (autorefresh)
    - openSUSE-12.2- Update-Debug - Index of /debug/update/12.2 (autorefresh)
    - openSUSE-12.2-Update-Debug-Non-Oss - Index of /debug/update/12.2-non-oss (autorefresh)
    - openSUSE-12.2-Source - Index of /source/distribution/12.2/repo/oss (autorefresh)

    these are standard repositories and could be essential if you want to debug or look at sources.


    it is up to you to remove them or not but they can also stay there.
