Exclamation Opensuse 11.2 No repositories connect


Firstly thanks for any help. Just looking for stable linux distro at the mo.
Currently using opensuse which has perfect hardware support except for it does not connect to repositories.

eg. I open 'Install software' and it says ina n error window

Cannot access installation media
http://download.opensuse.org/distrib.../repo/non-oss/
(Medium 1).
Check whether the server is accessible
[/I]
This happens if i refresh or anything.
This happens if i try to update in terminal.
This seems to be a commmon problem with opensuse and I tried the stated solution. Turning off IPV6 and that solved nothing.

1)Any commands to get you the correct info so you can help and to make sure IPV6 is off.

2)Any suggestions of a fix?

Thanks a lot for any help whatsoever.
(By the way I've full Wifi internet connection going)

Check if you have access to the network. It could be a networking problem. I use openSUSE 12.2 and don't have your problem.

Run "Yast2 -> Software -> Software Repositories"

Make sure these two are selected:
http://download.opensuse.org/distrib...11.2/repo/oss/
http://download.opensuse.org/source/...11.2/repo/oss/

Try "getent hosts download.opensuse.org" or "ping -c2 download.opensuse.org" to test name resolution and network connectivity.

Try "sudo /usr/sbin/traceroute download.opensuse.org". Does the traffic get all the way there. At work, sometimes I am unable to reach an ftp server because of a router in Chicago.

Do you live somewhere where opensuse.org might be blocked. China or Australia perhaps. (Australia was a joke, but not by much)

That last one might be a hint. But when I tried to add the repositories you listed they were already added.

alsoI live in Ireland so no...)

Thanks for any help
