    Default New installation repositories

    Dear all,
    I have just finished in one computer a new installation. This is what I see in the repositories after the installation

    Code:
     zypper lr

    I would like to ask you if there are "correct" (in terms that they are not a bad mixture) and what should I have more to have access
    to mp3 codecs,vlc, kile text editor, latex and code editors.

    You won't likely use the debug and source repositories. You will need to add Packman for multimedia support. See

    http://forums.opensuse.org/english/g...ml#post2533652

    Otherwise it depends most on your needs. oss/non-oss/update/packman is usually "good enough."

    Hi,
    can you give me a bit the command lines needed to remove the two repositories
    add the third one

    and more importantly to update the repositories?

    See 'zypper help mr' and 'zypper help rr' for information on modifying or removing repositories. If you follow the instructions in the link provided, the first step is

    Code:
    zypper ar -f http://packman.inode.at/suse/openSUSE_12.3/ packman
    This adds the packman repo.

    It looks okay to me. I can access the directory and file with my web browser. In a recent post, you said you have no Internet connection at home. Is that where you're trying to do this from?

    There is no need to remove them (execept when you are very strict in not wanting to see them). They are disable already and thus will not hamper your system at all. And when there is ever a need to use the, enabling them is much easier then goe and search for the precise wording.
