It looks like I missed a couple of automatic updates, but only from the Packman repository. They are supposed to automatically update, right, or do only the Opensuse repositories automatically update?
I have been having problems with Mplayer playing some things and I just now discovered that there was a newer version of both MPlayer and win32codec that were probably accessible back when my Packman repository was still working, but somehow never got updated. At some time around 6 months ago, Yast stopped reading that as a valid installation source (the address listed in The Gem Report?), probably when they changed their server to unixheads. The thing is that these two newer versions only existed on that Packman website, not on Opensuse. I have deleted that installation source in Yast, but after doing the search again, have found that Packman was the only repository that had those updated versions.
I'm not sure if that will even fix my Mplayer issue since Opensuse is supposed to have the latest, greatest anyway ... right? I have tried updateing the Packman installation source in Yast with the new information listed in Opensuse, but for some reason it just won't work.
This is what Opensuse says:
Packman offers various additional packages for SUSE Linux. Please use a mirror if possible:
To import the GnuPG key issue the following command as root:
rpm --import http://packman.unixheads.com/suse/10...y-1abd1afb.asc
Type - rpm-md/repomd
Protocol - HTTP
Server name - packman.iu-bremen.de
Directories - suse/10.0
Mirrors - Australia Belgium Germany Germany Germany Germany Romania USA USA
So I plugged in a Packman installation source in Yast, as follows:
Protocol - HTTP
Server - packman.unixheads.com
Directory - suse/10.0/gpg-pubkey-1abd1afb.asc
But it says,
Unable to create installation source
from URL 'http://packman.unixheads.com/suse/10.0/gpg-pubkey-1abd1afb.asc'
Does this mean anything to anybody or is just back to the drawing board? I already ran the command, as stated. Does this have any effect on Yast, or does it only affect command-line oriented updates? (Obviously, it has no effect on Yast.)
