Well without packman, Suse becomes dysfuntional. Has anyone come up with a url for Packman that is accepting ???
What happened to Packman Repo? I haven’t been able to access it in a couple days.
losingle & sambooka, you must specify your openSUSE version. For openSUSE 11.3, use the following link:
I just did an update from the packman.unixheads.com repo. No problem with reaching it.
This link is still working for me…

openSUSE 11.3 (x86_64) Kernel 18.104.22.168-0.3-default
up 19:54, 2 users, load average: 0.20, 0.12, 0.05

The unixheads-mirror will be taken down soon, though.
However, there are still enough mirrors left. Packman is far from being “dead”.
All OpenSuSE 11.3 machines in the world (or at least a very large part) are all configured to point to one Packman Repo mirror in Belgium and that mirror has been taken down.
To fix your problem:
- Add the OpenSuSE Community Repo link to Packman as usual to at least obtain the correct repo mirror path.
- Look up an alternative Packman repo mirror elsewhere in the world, preferably geographically close to where you are.
- Edit the Packman Repository Source entry with your new server, remember it should not include the prefix (eg http://)
This is working for 11.2

It will still keep going, have a look at this blog;
Good to know
Is there a known replacement for Packman? It is going to be sorely missed.
Packman is still there:question:

As root, at the CLI do:
zypper lr -d
Locate the line that refers to packman, then do:
zypper rr N
(where N is the line number of the packman repo in the list just printed.
zypper ar -n packman http://packman.inode.at/suse/openSUSE_11.3 packman
(that’s all one line - watch the line wrap).
