    Default Weird problem trying to install packages from an OBS repo - Ideas?

    Situation:
    Alreadey have the regular 13.1 Virtualization repo installed and configured
    Code:
     4 | Virtualization                     | Virtualization                     | Yes     | Yes     |   99     | rpm-md | http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Virtualization/openSUSE_13.1/
    Added an OBS repo with the following location
    Code:
     3 | OBS_Virtualization_13.1            | OBS_Virtualization_13.1            | Yes     | No      |   99     | NONE   | http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Virtualization/Appliances/openSUSE_13.1
    After I posted the above, I noticed that the repository listed type=NONE. I re-added the repo, the type is now rpm-md but does not fix zypper's problems, it still doesn't read what's in the repo

    Objective

    The OBS repo contains a special Kiwi build system (5.6) compared to the Kiwi in the regular virtualization repo

    Result:
    When I search for, and install Kiwi, it still returns only the version that's in the main virtualization repo. Nothing I can think of returns the kiwi in the OBS repo, even though the OBS repo was added successfully and "zypper ref" does not return an error suggesting a repo problem.
    Code:
    zypper in kiwi
    Would like to figure out how to search and download packages from the OBS repo, the alternative is to download and install all the packages in that repo one by one. Additionally, unless zypper can pull down packages from this OBS repo, each package install cannot automatically download dependencies.

    TIA,
    TSU

    Hi
    Did you try the from option?
    Code:
    zypper in --from OBS_Virtualization_13.1 kiwi

    I did, but tried again just now anyway.
    Code:
    # zypper in --from OBS_Virtualization_13.1 kiwi
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    'kiwi' not found in package names. Trying capabilities.
    'kiwi' is already installed.
    Resolving package dependencies...
    Nothing to do.

    Hi
    Strange indeed, it is there....
    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...rpm.mirrorlist

    Code:
    osc se kiwi|grep Virt
    Virtualization:Appliances                         kiwi
    home:sbahling:branches:Virtualization:Appliances  kiwi
    
    osc getbinaries kiwi Virtualization:Appliances openSUSE_13.1 x86_64
    Server returned an error: HTTP Error 404: Not Found
    kiwi
    I would guess there is something up with mirrorbrain....

    Although I didn't notice the desired version is available in Factory, it installed as the default in openSUSE Factory (13.2).
    (The package list at software.opensuse.org don't mention any Factory packages).

    So, am speculating that maybe the obs repo was disabled intentionally although the way it was done allows repo add and refresh as I've described which leads to mis-understanding and non-functionality.
