    Default ZMD: No software updates available / Why?


    Since 2 weeks, my Novell Software Updater does NOT indicate any
    available update? I think the message/info is wrong as I receive a few
    notifications from Novell about new patches available.

    Unfortunately nothing occured on my system. My account is active at
    Novell, so I should be able to download/install patches with no
    problem.

    But on my Suse console, the icon in the task bar is still on "No
    software updates available" (see
    http://spip.vector.ch/novell-update.gif)

    What should I do in order to get the software updater working again?

    Thank you in advance for your help.
    Joel

    Recommend

    - Inspect YAST Online Update configuration
    - Verify Online Repositories updated
    - Verify a good network connection, eg ping your online repositories.
    - Are you behind a firewall, particularly a Proxy firewall? A Proxy
    firewall is more problematic than other firewalls, I've had problems
    passing proper credentials to the Proxy despite SuSE improvements (you
    can search the Forum for Proxy HTTP connectivity)

    similar problems....


    Also several times have restarted and ended up with a blank screen or
    something else not working right.


    Now suspect given several issues reappearing after thought resolved may
    be a good time to just reformat and rerun the entire installation...


    Bugs followed after during my installation yesterday thought one power
    off was a restart, now suspect may have been a quickie power
    interruption...

    Hi,

    maybe you should contact novell or use the SLED forum because here
    mainly opensuse is discussed.

    Hope this helps
