Thread: Repo Import failed

  1. #1

    Question Repo Import failed

    I am trying to import my repo I am hosting on my server.
    I can add my repository simply with: sudo zypper ar -f URL ALIAS
    or sudo zypper ar -r URL/file.repo
    on openSUSE but I cannot add it in SuseStudio.
    It says: Importing the repository '' () failed:
    Where is the problem?

    Where is your server located? ie, is it behind a firewall? If so, is
    port forwarding enabled to get the connection to your server?

    My Repo is on my public server where I am also hosting my website. I can browse through the repo and add it in opensuse manually. Why should I need portforwarding then? If this would be the problem I should not be able to add it manually too.

    There are a number of ways to set up a repo server, and if you're behind
    a firewall, that would explain why it's not importing properly, so I
    wanted to eliminate that.

    Since that's not the issue, we'll need more information about how the repo
    is set up and its connectivity in order to provide further assistance.

    The Url is repo.lycheelinux.com.
    I created it locally on my computer and uploaded it with rsync to the server.

    In looking at the import, it looks like you need to supply the path to
    the root of the repo rather than the path to the .repo file.

    I tried that and it seems to start, but then it throws an error as well -
    but it looks like something they'll need to look at on the backend. If
    you click the "Forum" link at the bottom of susestudio.com (when logged
    in), that'll get your question to the right people.

    The URL. http://repo.lycheelinux.com is what you should use, leave off
    the /[file].repo part of it, as it's not needed.

    > I already posted it there but I dont get any response.


    Let me see if I can poke someone, as the URL that you should use doesn't
    seem to be working either.

    Hi
    Why host something that can already be added direct from OBS into SUSE
    Studio? For random rpm's, just upload them?

    Owncloud use OBS directly to create all there rpms etc for distribution.

    I already tried it without the .repo file.
    Thanks.

    I just uploaded some test packages. It is much nicer for me to have my own repository.
