Packman repository in YaST?


Hey guys. I'm not sure how I add the Packman rpm repository in YaST. I see people use it everywhere, but I don't know how to have YaST look in that rather than its other update servers...

I found the easiest way to add repositories was to open a terminal as root.

then type
installation_sources -a http://packman.iu-bremen.de/suse/10.0/

Much easier than having to break it up into server and directory when you use YAST.

OpenSUSE YAST repositories and apt4rpm
