SUSE 10 SP3 trying to add a new HTTP installation source


Hi all

I want add an HTTP website as my installation source.

Currently I have one path on that site already added, but it is pointing to SLES10 SP3 and I would like to add a new path that will go to my SLES 11.1.

So right now the path has this;
http://10.10.10.10/sles/10.3/32 and it works.

I tried to add one of the similar format
http://10.10.10.10/sles/11.1/32 and it fails with the error in the screenshot.

I don't understand why this path is not working.
or a cmd line output if you can't see the screenshot:

dell102:/tmp/mememe # installation_sources -a http://10.10.10.10/sles/11.1/32/
4239 zmd
ZENworks Management Daemon is running.
WARNING: this command will not synchronize changes.
Use rug or yast2 for that.
Determining http://10.10.10.10/sles/11.1/32/ source type...
.. not YUM
http://10.10.10.10/sles/11.1/32/ is type YaST
Unknown Error: Invalid path name component '/sles/11.1/32/./ suse/setup/descr/Basis-Devel-11-38.13.9.i586.pat.gz'
ERROR



For the server name I just put 10.10.10.10 and for the directory on server I just put /sles/11.1/32/.

Any help you guys can provide on this would be greatly appreciated.



Thanks
Davy

What do you see when you open a browser to that address? Does it contain suse/setup/descr/Basis-Devel-11-38.13.9.i586.pat.gz'

yes, I see the iso images and can download them, and when I unpack them I see the basic-devel... file.

My machine already uses one of the images on that same server as a source, and it works. But when I try to add another iso image from the HTTP server as a source it fails, it also fails when I try to modify the existing working source to point it to the new iso.
