Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

i have problem with installing every software,ex i wanted to install flash player,i downloaded the rpm and try to install.when it wants to strat this problem occure and nothing happend. even when i want to open intall software it happens.
i have nothing to do with it,it drives me crazy!!
In your first post you mention that you already downloaded the rpm and are trying to install it, so it is on your machine already. What does this have to do with proxy settings (which are for outside communication)?
Could you rephrase the question and try to be more clear about what you cannot do?
these are the output of the ping command:

for accessing the internet we have to set proxy on browser and it works properly.
i click also the details i attach pic.
The Opensuse servers were down for a while recently. First open Yast and open the Software Repositories. Select (highlight) one of the enabled repositories. Then click to Refresh Selected. This will let you know if you can connect to the servers.
Also, the repositories listed to Autorefresh, will attempt to connect to each of the servers whenever you open the install software application. As long as you have refreshed them recently, you might want to disable Autorefresh.
When you download an RPM, there will usually be dependencies not included with the RPM. Yast will attempt to find those dependencies whenever you launch the Install Software application, and if the repository server for that dependency is down, you will get an error as described in your post.

@Wifi-Fanatux: The servers were reachable (see post #6 and #7). Post #10 shows this to be a bug in one of the default packages that came with 11.2 (I did not check if this is true for other versions as well). A bugfree version is available.
