Thread: Help - Cannot find opensuse repository

  1. #1

    Default Help - Cannot find opensuse repository

    I have two net install CDs that I burned. I have used them several times, on a couple of computers, to do net installs of 13.1 with no trouble. These are 32 bit install cd's.

    Last week, I attempted to install on my son's computer. The install was going okay until the screen started to flash and all went into the dumper. I tried to logon to the opensuse site, but it was down for maintenance.

    Today, i tried to install again and got message "cannot find opensuse repository." This happens on two other computers.

    Google shows several similar complaints, but with older versions. What is going on?

    Start by removing the existing repos:

    Code:
    mkdir /etc/zypp/repos.d/old
    Code:
    mv /etc/zypp/repos.d/*.repo /etc/zypp/repos.d/old
    Then add the new repos

    Code:
    zypper ar -f -c http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/13.1/repo/oss repo-oss
    Code:
    zypper ar -f -c http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/13.1/repo/non-oss repo-non-oss
    Code:
    zypper ar -f -c http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/13.1/repo/debug repo-debug

    Maybe I wasn't clear about the problem.

    I'm attempting to do a net install from CD's that I have previously burned. They have worked fine for several installs in the recent past.

    Now, i'm attempting an install on another computer, and the opensuse repository cannot be found. I assume this is because the installer is not setting up an internet connection with dhcp as was the case previously. Something has changed.

    Obviously, I have not enabled any repositories, nor can I enter any commands - this is an install problem.

    Oh ok it's not installed yet ok.

    I believe there is a choice to do a network install from the CD
    it will then ask you for the http address and the place were the files
    are to download these are the things that worked for me.

    the address that has worked for me before is

    Code:
     download.opensuse.org
    then
    Code:
     /distribution/13.1/repo/oss/
    then it loads the Files and starts the install of 13.1
    with the graphical user interface installer.

    KEA0463:

    After selecting Installation, there appears a box where a boot option can be inserted. I have seen this expressed on Google and the writers made suggestions as to what to enter. tried three and they didn't work. I have never inserted anything in the past. Tried your suggestion and no work either.

    I thought perhaps the installer isn't setting up an internet connection, but that can't be the case since the problem didn't exist when i last used the cd's.
    Could it be that the installer is looking for a repository that has changed??
    Or, is there some magic phrase that must be entered into the boot option?
    Or, should I just download and burn new cds?

    Does anyone know?

    I would try to burn some different cd's from the opensuse download website
    just to see if that works

    Is you connection Wireless? If so what chip set you may need some driver or better yet hard wire it that almost always works

    I'm not very familiar with the net cd install, but I suppose you can get
    on a terminal, on the install system, and try commands such as
    "ifconfig", "route", or "ping router address", and if it works, then
    "ping google.com".

    The usual for diagnosing network problems :-)

    I have finished net installation right now. Without any problem.
    And I have not had any problems with net installations (20 - 30 times) so far.
    It seems that you have problem with internet connection or your cd is corrupted. Maybe you should try to compare cd checksum.
