Repositories can't redownload


hi every body
this is my first time using opensuse10.3
it looks nice
my problem is
..........
when i was installing it it accessed the net for downloading Repositories i allowed to do so
but the service provider have problems with the net
that means the net cuts while downloading the Repositories
so i reinstalled it without Repositories
no i installed suse successfully
and i want to download Repositories so i went to administration tools and make update
it told me that the database is ok
but nothing downloaded
any suggestions?

Lightbulb repositories can,t be reloaded

Startup yast2 > software> option community repositories click
at this option than it will download all the repositories

On the left side there a box before the each repositories click if you want it .
If you have make the selection start up online update


good luck

You can make your own CD (by downloading updates first to your p/c) and then doing the updates from there but you can't purchase a cd as such.

If all the updating gets on your nerves - just switch off the automatic update icon and check manually every week or weeks and see what updates need to be installed.

It really depends on what updates you do. I like to install all the kde updates, updates from the packman site and critical updates - so generally there are updates to do most days.
