after a fresh install of 11.4 on my 11.2 machine, I wanted to update the repositories via yast or zypper. Both fail after a few MB of download and then stop.
Internet and firefox allow to download the repositories manually, but with 183 software packages - no thanks!
Any help is very much appreciated.
Have you rebooted proper ?
I just realised that sounds odd to non UK persons.
Post install, make sure you reboot again in addition to the systems post install reboot
yes, I rebooted (in fact, the machine was off yesterday).
Any further idea on this? Is this rather a network problem or a problem of my machine? I have never had this with 11.2. Although I every now and then have the problem of not being able to get a reply from a DNS server.
Are you using DHCP
or did you set up DNS manually?
DHCP. My provider only works with this.
This worked out.
Still, the yast graphical version keeps being stuck.
Any idea to get this working? I would like to install skype with the respective dependencies (and I like to see graphics and move the mouse better than typing text like in the early days of computers).
I found a bugzilla thread which seems to cover a similar problem:
So, if I enter
modprobe 3c59x debug=6
then yast will run smoothly.
It seems, there is something going on with the 3Com network cards, as I also have one installed (3C905CX-TX/TX-M).
At least some progress

Please add yourself to the bug report with a “me too” at least, and
hardware details. Do not forget!
