Own mirror doesn't contain install repo

Hi - I’m not sure if I’ve posted this in the right section or not, so I’ll apologise in advance if I got it wrong…

A few weeks ago I decided to setup my own OpenSuSe mirror, using the opensuse-hotstuff-160gb rsync module as the website says here that it contains the install repo… however if I boot from a 12.3 network install CD, and point it to my local repo (mirror.carsons.net.au/distribution/12.3/repo/oss) it fails (however the update repo works for existing machines)… I’d rather not have to jump up to the next module if i don’t have to, but does anyone have any ideas?

my mirror is here (not listed publicly as its more just for personal use)

Why don’t you compare the directory and files structure of your mirror
against the opensuse one?

Compare against:


http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/12.3/repo/

For example, if you compare the file listing of


http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/12.3/repo/oss/
http://mirror.carsons.net.au/distribution/12.3/repo/oss/

you can see instantly that the files are missing in yours, so it can not
be recognized.

Then if you compare the update repo, at:


http://download.opensuse.org/update/12.3/
http://mirror.carsons.net.au/update/12.3/

There is only one file missing, “openSUSE:12.3:Update.repo”. Maybe that
one is not necessary.

I notice that you do not have the 64 bit update arch :-?
But it is present on the installation repo.

Well, you are listing it now, and it appears in internet - you’d better
have the bandwidth, or remove it from internet.
