SUSE Online Sources??


I have the cd sources, packman something and 2 other FTP to get software from. I was wondering if there was any other that I could add to the list?

mirror.kernel.org/opensuse/distribution/SL-10.1/non-oss-inst-source//
mirror.kernel.org/opensuse/distribution/SL-10.1/inst-source//
packman.unixheads.com/suse/10.1

Thanks!

no problem!
Apperently YasT does not work too well initially in suse 10.1 so alot of people use smart.
But if it works for you that's good

Ok so basically, if I have it right, smart overtakes the YUM updater on Suse right? I just installed it and like it so far... am I right?

Can anyone tell me if I could actually "replace" Yast with smart? Meaning I wouldnt have to use YAST anymore? Because Ive noticed that some apps does not get the release in time with smart....??

Which packages are you talking about?
AFAIK smart should be a complete alternative to yast.
Some more info on smart: Linux Online Reviews - suse 10.1
