ftp program for suse 9.1?


i just discovered that suse 9.1 lacks a ftp-program. is there someone who could recommend one? i do quite a lot of uploads so this is essential...

you can ftp with konqueror and drag&drop remote files to your local folder and vice versa.

is kbear already a part of the standard-installation!? i did not yet find a search.
it would be great using konqueror for ftp also. but how do i see the ftp-folder? if i type in the adress with ftp:// instead of http:// nothing happens, tried this.

Kbear is included with your install disks, use YaST to install it.

yast cannot find kbear - and, btw, it shows two harddisks; / with 3,96gb and /windows/c with 3,03 gb. the last one should have been deleted during installation, which was not the case. but where is the rest of my 40gb harddisk!? do i need to format the rest and where do i find it?

If you're running 9.1 personal, kbear may not be included. It is included in 9.1 Pro for sure. You can download it here.

What are you talking about? Nobody mentioned downloading and burning an ISO.

to use Konquorer as a ftp client just type into the address bar:

ftp://ftp.mysite.com or what ever the ftp sit your trying to get to is

you just need to tell it to use the ftp protocall instead of the http protocall by starting the address with ftp://

i tried this with ftp://home.arcor.de/bergenbilder/ and it won't work. with the slash as last sign, it says that it cannot open the folder, without slash it says, the file does not exist. tomorrow i can have a try with some accounts at tripod and the one at oli.xelia.net also. (i am just passing by and very tired...)

best regards

That's really strange that you can't see the folder on your ftp server. Konqueror works great with my FTP, but Kbear works great also because it allows you to create site profiles and such. I'm also running 9.1 Personal, and Kbear was installed by default.

Try typing kbear at in a terminal. That should start it.

Can you post a screenshot of your partition configuration? Like this:

You may also want to add the SuSE ftp site to your installation sources by using starting YaST and following these directions.

In YaST:
1. In the software group, choose 'Change Source of Installation'
2. Click 'Add', 'FTP'
3. Enter these values -
Server Name: ftp.suse.com
Directory on Server: pub/suse/i386/9.1/
4. Click Ok

You may also want to add the following RPM server:
Server Name: packman.iu-bremen.de
Directory on Server: suse/9.1

The only drawback is that starting the 'Install and Remove Software' module will now have to query these FTP sites, so it will be a little slower. Hope this helps, as I'm a real noobie too and I didn't know these things as of two days ago
