Thread: How do I add this repo (at download.opensuse.org)? YAST tells me it can't open it

  1. #1

    Default How do I add this repo (at download.opensuse.org)? YAST tells me it can't open it

    When I go into software management -> repositories and add the repo as:
    Code:
    http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Java:/Factory/openSUSE_42.1/x86_64/
    It tells me it can't open that repo. I want the software in there, how do I add the proper repo?

    Hi
    Drop the x86_64/ TMI it needs the repodata directory...

    From the command line...
    Code:
    zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Java:/Factory/openSUSE_42.1/ "Java:Factory"
    zypper ref
