Hello all, first of all, I’m not a complete noob when it comes to Linux and have been experienced for years. However, when I decided to perform a new installation on a laptop I have sitting here, running through the installation and the auto configuration portion, it kept prompting me for a username and password to the http://downloads.opensuse.org/11.2 (something similiar). After cancelling and choosing to bypass something, I honestly don’t recall, I was finally taken to my KDE desktop. Which is fine, but now when launching YAST to perform an online update I’m getting the same prompt “User Authentication” to /repo/no-oss.
Now I’m not sure exactly what’s going on here but all I’ve pulled up online are posts referencing proxy servers, authentication servers, NTLM , Raduis etc… all of which are not running on my network… this is a simply laptop on my home network with no proxy servers running and no requirements to login prior to getting outside the perimeter. Did something I install as I blanketly applied various software packages, cause this? As stated I’ve got plenty of experience with Linux, of other varieties and have never been prompted like this on a newly installed machine using any other distro.
Being new to Open Suse this is a complexity that I would rather not face right now as all I want to do is run the OS and check it out.
If this question has been answered elsewhere or if someone could point me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate it.
