first of all I would like to apologise if the problem I am about to post has already been posted by someone else and has been resolved. I have searched the forums and couln’t find any resolution for the problem I am experiencing and hence this post.
I have never used SUSE before and thought I would give it a try. I downloaded openSUSE-11.0-DVD-i386.iso, formatted my hard hardrive and set about doing a fresh install on my laptop (Intel Celeron).
The istallation wizard takes me through the language selection screen and I agree with the ‘term & conditions’ and click next. I am now on the ‘System Probing’ screen. All the components are checked successfully and the wizard comes to ‘initialise package manager’. After about completing 10%, I get a screen which says,
Unable to create repository from URL ‘cd:///?devices=/dev/sr0’
Valid metadata not found at specified URL(s)
- can’t copy /var/adm/mount/AP_0x00000001/suse/setup/descr/EXTRA_PROV to /var/cache/zypp/raw/openSUSE-DVD 11.0vVML4x
- can’t provide /suse/setup/descr/EXTRA_PROV: Can’t copy /var/adm/mount/AP_0x00000001/suse/setup/descr/EXTRA_PROV to /var/cache/zypp/raw/openSUSE-DVD 11.0vVML4x
I have verified the ISO and the checksum compared with the one provided on your website.
Can someone please help.
