Thumbs down Suse 11.0 Gnome Failing to update.


Hello Everybody,

I installed Gnome and it is working fine however when it tries to update this error message comes up 'FAILED TO UPDATE SYSTEM: AUTHORISATION COULD NOT BE OBTAINED' I was surprised when I saw the work 'authorization' miss-spelled. I'm running as ROOT.
I would really appreciate your help.
Thanks!

i tried running the online configuration but it fails. something like cant add repositories. I think it is because I already have repositories on my system for KDE?
advice.
thanks!

No it has nothing to do with KDE , I use them both
Normally the updates for Gnome come about two weeks after the KDE updates
In you,re list of repositories you need at least DOWNLOAD OPENSUSE.ORG/REPOSITORIES/GNOME/STABLE/OPENSUSE_11.0/
Which other ones you also needs I can not determine from here ,because do not know the software you has installed and
I do not know you,re Graphic Card
If it is not on you,re list you can ad it manually using the AD Button using KDE it is yast>software repositories
