Can you run update or install thru a server instead of CD?

To whom it may concern

Everytime I have too install or update an application on Suse 10.0, I get prompt too install my CD-disk 1 or 2, or 3 or 4 or 5 disk.

I was wondering is there a way where I could run the update thru an FTP or web site where I could avoid been ask to install CD-Disk 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5?


How do you setup on YastControl?

You need to disable the CD installation source and add more YAST repositories. There is a thread about this in the Suse forum. Search for "opensuse yast repositories". There are also instructions on the OpenSuse website that show you how to add extra software repositories.
