I have the ISO files of the SuSE Linux Enterprise SDK and have already successfully used them as installation source in Zypper and YaST.
However, I now want to move them to another server which I want to access via http. I have already mounted the ISOs and copied the files from them to the server, but I did not manage to add the repository. I tried to add via YaST an http repository using the directory on the server where I copied the files to, but the repository does not show up in the list. Instead, a new service has been added, but without any repositories in it.
I also tried to add it via zypper using this command:
zypper ar http://username:email@example.com/filebase/SuSE/SLE-11-SDK-DVD-x86_64-GM-Media1 SUSE-Linux-Enterprise-Software-Development-Kit-11_11-0
This seems to work, but when I refresh the repositories I get the following error:
Retrieving repository 'SUSE-Linux-Enterprise-Software-Development-Kit-11_11-0' metadata [error]
Repository 'SUSE-Linux-Enterprise-Software-Development-Kit-11_11-0' is invalid.
File /var/tmp/TmpFile.IfsKSq doesn't contain public key data
Please check if the URIs defined for this repository are pointing to a valid repository.
Skipping repository 'SUSE-Linux-Enterprise-Software-Development-Kit-11_11-0' because of the above error.
Besides, the repository has type "rpm-md" instead of "yast2".
Is it impossible to use the files from the ISO as an http repository, or can anybode tell me what to do?
Thanks a lot!
