I need to increase the timeout for a package transfer when performing a dist-upgrade using zypper. I’ve tried changing the download.transfer_timeout field in the /etc/zypp/zypp.conf config file but setting it to 1 minute or 2 hours doesn’t seem to have any effect, the transfer will always timeout after an hour.
In the zypper.log I see the following:
2017-11-29 03:00:36 <3> VideoEdge(3318) [zypp] MediaCurl.cc(doGetFileCopyFile):1563 curl error: 28: Operation timed out after 3599809 milliseconds with 183398400 out of 365071743 bytes received, temp file size 183398400 bytes.
Is there a different config file I need to change or something I need to do for the changes I’ve made to take effect?
The reason for the transfer failure is a low bandwidth network, which we’ve deliberately set up to test our product. We know why the transfer fails, we just want to increase the timeout for robustness. Thanks.
