I’m dealling with 2 problems here:
1 - Yast don’t show any packages for the repo Index of /source/distribution/11.3/repo/oss
2 - If I open this link on a browser and manually download and install the packages xtables-addons-1.27-1.3.src.rpm and xtables-geoip-2010.04-1.3.src.rpm it shows a message saying that it could not be installed without details. Trying to manually install it using rpm is the same: it returns 0 with no details.
What can I do to install these packages and what is wrong with this repo?
Thanks in advance
Problem already solved.

well, nothing wrong with the repo that i can see–you just have to
know that it is impossible to directly install from source (must
compile and then install)…
maybe a dumb question on my part, but do you actually want to
configure, compile and install from source? really?
i mean, why not just install the already built and ready to roll (via
a simple YaST install using the oss (standard) repo):
it is a LOT simpler, quicker, etc…
i don’t know, you might benefit from this:
