I started getting Yast repository timeout failures on some 10.3 directories.
Some time ago, when there was an outage (I think it was a hard drive type of outage), I created a script to run before YAST, just to confirm all repositories were available. It was faster than waiting for YAST to timeout. I knew if there were failures, to try later.
But, I noticed that some of the 10.3 repositories from openSuSE and mirrors (TDS), that I have had in YaST and are now failing, don’t seem to be there any more.
I didn’t see anything in the newsletter or on the web here that jumped out at me and indicated these were going away. I could have missed it though How do I know if a repository is gone temporarily, for good, or moved?
It might be helpful if you say which ones. I haven’t had this problem and I subscribe to quite a lot of the repositories.
Started YaST > Software > Software management a minute ago. No problems. Have OSS, NON-OSS, Update repos from openSUSE 10.3.
These are the 3 that started reporting errors. They have been enabled/refreshed in YaST for some time and just recently started getting timeouts. I changed them to only be enabled. I’m just trying to figure out what changed and how I should handle this in the future.
Index of /distribution/10.3/repo/non-oss
I know the mirrors have similar directory structures. There does appear to be a “http://download.opensuse.org/pub/opensuse/distribution/10.3/repo/oss/”,
but not a “http://suse.mirrors.tds.net/pub/opensuse/distribution/10.3/repo/oss”.
