I was doing an install of openSUSE-DVD-build0233-i586.iso.
Nearly at the end, after downloading the release note and after detecting/configuring my printer, soundcard and TVcard the system tried to do an online update and generated the following message:
Failed to download /media.1/media from:
-[AbstractCommand cc196} URL=http://widehat.opensuse.org/factory-snapshot/repo/oss/media.1/media
If I click the OKE button the system presents 3 options retry, skip autorefresh and skip but whatever I tried the same error continues to pop up, so I am stuck.
What can I do to correct this situation or should I press the power button to interrupt/stop the install
Thanks for the help

Is it a SUSE, KDE or disk hardware (INTEL X25M SSD in my case) problem?
Another interesting addition would be a guideline (with lots of lovely EXAMPLES) of what to type into a file like /boot/grub/menu.lst to set up any initial selection of operating systems. There are not too many commands and it is not that difficult to explain the relationship of each to disk/partition locations.
I say this as most people have to surf around forums to find out just what will work – and it is useful for those who might want to choose between SUSE 11.2 or earlier distros that worked for them in some way – or who need Windows because of the documents they have to write.]]>
Can SUSE also publish a guideline to creating partitions for a SUSE-11.2 installation using EXT4 but EXT3 for a boot partition.
Mostly we just install and let the installer decide or suggest some optimal partitioning. Can you change 11.2 to suggest a root partition, boot partition and home partition, or a menu of “most probable” partitioning – depending on the user expected.
That would be a big help.
What would be good is a graphical interface with a suggestion for partitions – say root, boot and home – and then the user can shift a boundary between each to change the size of each partition. You can type in partition sizes but a graphical layout with shifting boundaries is more intuitive to some and simple to those who don’t want to spend time getting lost in what is a simple task for most SUSE users.
Instead of a suggested partitioning you could ask the user to type in the partitions they want – let the installer make an initial partition size suggestion – then allow the user to change the size of each either directly (by typing in a size) or by shifting boundaries – SuperSuse 11.2.]]>
I had exact the same problem.]]>
Did you find a solution?
It has hard disks for software development and data processing. It can also do quad boots to Vista and Kununtu.
Another advantage of Suse 11.2 M6 is that is seems to find or recognize my r8169 (for RT811B/8168B NIC) drivers and is stable.
Before this the UD% was famous for losing the network on reboot.
You had to switch off and reboot – that doesn’t happen now – so I don’t have to try splurging 250 Euros to see if ASUS PT6 V2 can do it better – I was surfing the computer shops until I took a gamble on M6 – thanks for that.]]>
(1) Cannot find keyboard admin in YAST – I had to “repair installation” to get my spanish keyboard recognized.
(2) Why did “installation repair” find some packages not loaded – but then load them OK – why not get it right first time?
(3) Does a “fast boot” both in EXT3 (and EXT4) – cant find “ext3″ ???? – why.
(4) SSD is fast but boot up is slow because bootup is looking around “fd0″ (with EXT3 and EXT4) and finding about five “errors” – why.
(5) Where is the power info in the “system tray” – that is how I can check my CPU frequencies.
(6) Got my time zone wrong – I had to go into “date and time” in YAST to fix it – why?
Otherwise it seems OK.
It also grubs up with a possible boot to Windows 7 – fantastic.
But the keyboard thing really pisses me off.31 ]]>
