9.3- yast online update shows 'unknown' for product and version
I installed Suse 9.3 on this Compaq Armada m700 notebook. Things work really well, except YaST online update.
Here is what 'uname' shows.
# uname -a
Linux linux 126.96.36.199-20a-default #1 Wed Mar 23 21:52:37 UTC 2005 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
When I start yast2 and click on "Online Update', it shows
I configured /etc/youservers with an HTTP server for getting patches. In order for online_update command to work, I MUST give "-a i386' and '-v 9.3'. Otherwise, "online_update" picks up 9.2 version number and it fails.
I am able to successfully download and even install the patches manually. I am wondering if anyone has ran into and solved that problem with Yast.
Yast2 does not know how to get the version number eventhough uname works fine. I am assuming it does not know how to get the architecture either.
If I specify
in /etc/youservers. YaST shows the location, but it is unable to find the patches that are there in that directory.
# cat SuSE-release
SuSE Linux 9.3 (i586)
VERSION = 9.3
Any help is greatly appreciated.
