I recently downloaded the 11.2 live kde cd from the open SuSE site and have installed from it.
I then try to, via yast, to update what was given on the cd and also to install other software. However, the repositories listed all fail as being non-accessible.
I’ve heard that they were moved but their addresses were not changed for inclusion on the cd.
The repos I’m seeing are all of the form “http://download/opensuse.org/distribution/11.2/repo…”
So… anybody know where are they now?
Index of /repositories
A number of them can be added through:
Repository manager -> Add -> Repo’s by the Community. It will show a list.
Since you just start, I’d stick to just 4 repos. The 2 distribution ones (remove the CD/DVD entry), the update repo, and the Packman repo. Get to know the system first before you start upgrading (with non-stable packages).
I don’t know if it’s a typo, but the repos are here:
Index of /distribution/11.2/repo
you wrote a slash behind download!
If this wasn’t the problem, remove the old repos, then add them again from Community-Repos.
Hi Knurpht and Zwenny.
Zwenny. Yeps, the “/” was a typo.
Knurpht, I did as you suggested but never saw a “Community” option…
More digging on my part revealed that some F**kwit had disconnected me from the hub in a vain attempt to fix a problem of their own.
My apologies. Once reconnected and back on the web, I saw the “Community” tab and away we go again.
Many thanks for the prompt reply, I will get back to the installation once I’ve finished burying the body and sanitising the crime scene.
Cheers and thanks again.
