    Use YaST > Software > Software Repositories. Then select the entry that has hd:///?device=/dev/disk/.... in it. Uncheck the box Enables (below) and click OK.

    It is your installation DVD that is still in the list, but not in your system.

    When you did nothing speacial after the install, the advice above is the only thing to do

    When you are in doubt, post what you have
    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    Post the output here between CODE tags (the # buton in the tool bar of the post editor.).

    Hi,


    Like what Henk already told you. Disable the repos from yast (required to be root).

    Code:
    yast2 sw_single
    That being said you can do it using zypper too. (but please consider using yast first)

    If you want to check which url your repos it points to.

    Code:
    zypper lr -u | awk '$1 ~/^[0-9].*/{print $NF}'
    Now if you want to filter out repos that is not http or ftp

    Code:
    zypper lr -u | awk '$1 ~ /[0-9].*/ && $NF !~ /http:|ftp:/{print $NF}'
    That prints the repos that is most likely giving zypper an error.

    If you want to disable it (as root) run

    Code:
    mapfile -t repos < <(zypper lr -u | awk '$1 ~ /[0-9].*/ && $NF !~ /http:|ftp:/{print $1}')
    Code:
    zypper mr -d "${repos[@]}"

    Hi,

    sorry it should be

    Code:
    yast2 repositories
    not sw_single, my bad.

    If I say anything here that you already know, do not be offended. The information is also meant for any completely fresh newcomers who may know less than you.

    From your menu, launch Yast (it will ask for your root password).

    In there, select this (the green highlighted module in this graphic):




    When you have done that, it will take a few moments to refresh and load the repositories. You will then see this screen. In here, select the check marks as follows, make certain all other repositories do not have check marks, at least for now:



    Any other questions, come back and ask.
