Using "baseurl=ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org/sles/9" in SLES9


Hi,

I am trying to install mondo on SLES9 using RPMs and running into all kind of dependency issues.
The mondo site offers ropo-Deta(to configer repositories), I have used in RH.
But don't now where to put it in Suse.

whole file looks like this;
Quote:

[mondorescue]
name=sles 9 - MondoRescue Vanilla Packages
baseurl=ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org/sles/9
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0
Any ideas?

Thanks.

In opensuse the repo files are in /etc/zypp/repos.d/ but I don't know in SLES9, which did not use zypper as CLI package manager (I think it still used rug). Anyway, you can do a search for .repo files in /etc to find out:
Code:
find /etc -name \*.repo
Otherwise use Yast to set up a new installation source. If you're running a no-GUI server, take in mind that yast (version 1) can run in console as well.

Thanks for your input.


1-There is no file with "*.repo".
2-When I give yast same url(ftp.mondorescue.org/sles/9) it gives me error "unable to cd to 1386"




Thanks

It should be i386, not 1386. Anyway, connecting to the URL through firefox, the path should be that one you provided in the title. There is no directory named i386. What did you type exactly in Yast?

SO thats what I did,

>yast
|____software
|____online updates
|________new server

(X) ftp
|___(url goes here)


When I do next, it tries to resolve the url(or tries to down load package list)

Thats where I get the error.

│error Couldn't cd to i386

I'm afraid you can't do that as Online Update. Add the source to Yast --> Software --> Installation Sources (or something similar, I don't remember exactly how it was called in SUSE9). Then use Yast --> Software --> Package Management. Maybe it looks for the i386 directory in a structure similar to that of the update repositories, which does not exist in the normal repos.
