Thread: Updates for OpenSuse 11.2

    Question Updates for OpenSuse 11.2

    I was trying to install OpenSuse 11.2 in a vm yesterday and the day before.
    The installation procedure was stopped before online updates. Because it claimed that it could not find the file for the update list.

    However, today when I try again, it returns to normal and I can download the updates again.
    I am afraid that I cannot download them again in the future.
    Does anyone know where can I backup those files?

    Thank you!

    But 11.2 is not maintained any more, so there are no updates at all.
    What you find is what some mirrors may store for some time till they
    delete it.

    11.2 stopped updates on May 2011. From then on, there was limited
    support by the Evergreen project, till December 2013. If you /need/ to
    keep 11.2 systems for reasons of your own, you'd better mirror the
    entire oss, non-oss, updates, and evergreen-updates repositories inside
    your local network on a local server, and any extra repo you may ever
    need, and do so before they are deleted from Internet.

    Thank you for your reply.

    Actually that's also what I am searching for.
    I would like to download it to our internal server... And I am looking for such kind of repositories...

    You might want to check here for various repos/updates of old openSUSE versions.
