Yast unoffical repositories


I'm looking for unoffical yast repositories so I can get stuff like divx and w32 codecs. I'd like to add the repositories as sources of installation in yast.

Thats the ticket! Should be a sticky... or maybe even a default if lawyers didnt exist.

I found that I had to set it up like so:

Server: ""
DIrectory: "suse/9.1"

...just incase antone finds this post again.

Cheers Pcghost
