Cannot add repositories


I must be doing something wrong but i get an error like this when i try to add an additional repository in yast i get this.

Unknown Error: Downloading metadata failed (is YUM source?) or user did not accept remote source. Aborting refresh.

I am using the ones from opensuse's website. The nvidia one works correctly, but nothing from software.opensuse.org works.

First you can try to use a mirror. A lot of people on SuSE forums reported this problem (I guess you refer to the KDE repository for Opensuse), which is usually resolved selecting a mirror around the world.

are you trying to use Suse's updater?
try out smart updater. While Zen works, I personally think it stinks - but that is my 2 cents

http://susewiki.org/index.php?title=...ackage_Manager

just copy and paste for the version of opensuse you are running,

then
smart update
smart install smart-gui
