    Default Repository question, for openSUSE 11


    For openSUSE 11.0, can the openSUSE 11.1 DVD be added as a repo source ?
    (the version DVD , e.g. the oS 11.1 DVD is enabled as a repo in oS 11.1)


    So, that those updates (e.g. for GNOME, KDE 3.5, etc) that are
    available in the openSUSE 11.1 DVD can be applied to openSUSE 11 faster
    & without downloading from online repositories (esp useful for those
    with Internet bandwidth limitations).

    If so, how can this be done ?

    Sorry, but are you tried it?
    Example in YaST > Software > Software Repositories > Add > -*DVD*-?

    Thanks for the suggestion, but it seems that the openSUSE 11.1 DVD will
    not work to upgrade openSUSE 11. Will need to add the repo's manually.
    There are separate packages/repo's for oS 11 & oS 11.1.

    I've tried to add the 11.0 DVD to my Repo manager. It has started to
    read the files from it without any problem - but I'm canceled it - so, I
    don't know that after reading the repo files is it works or not.

    oS 11 DVD will work with oS 11 & oS 11. DVD will work with oS 11.1 (as a
    DVD reposotory). So it is version-specific. Hence, can't use oS 11.1 as
    a DVD repo for oS 11.0 (pkgs are different).
