Suse: Missing packages in software management


Hi all,

I am looking to install Cacti &/or MRTG on a linux SLES 11 SP2 box, from what I can find online this should be possible through YaST, however it does not show up in searches.

Would adding the second DVD (been having hassles downloading it) as a software repository work? Is there any other way that I can add those specific packages to the YaST software management so I dont need the entire DVD?

Thanks!

http://en.opensuse.org/Cacti#HOW-TO

since you're using SLES 11 SP2 the path to repository changes
Code:
zypper ar http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/server:/monitoring/SLE_11_SP2/
now just follow the instructions, i think there is even a browser based method on that page as well.
also check out http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...ng/SLE_11_SP2/
you can definitely download rpms and add it to your local repository but you'll have to re run createrepo
