Weird.. because it's the primairy mirror of SuSE. Maybe the server has some problems lately? I had some difficulties with adding repositories at my SuSE 9.3 too this week.

I think the server is down.... But I've searh a little and find an sources.list that show me other repositories who has the same subdivisions (packman, scorot, guru....) and packages than the repos at ftp.gdwg.de.

I've found that at http://forums.suselinuxsupport.de/in...howtopic=21505. Look for the mirros at ftp://mirrors.mathematik.uni-bielefe...uSE/10.0-i386/

I'll test this later.

Lets say a repo has the url http://ftp.opensuse.org/pub/opensuse/distribution/SL-10.0-OSS/inst-source/ , you would select http as the protocol. The name of the server would be ftp.opensuse.org and the installation directory would be pub/opensuse/distribution/SL-10.0-OSS/inst-source .

Jar files,
Code:
$java -jar jar-file
For installing software from tarballs take a look here.
For Realplayer to work with Firefox, just run it and make sure you select the option to configure Mozilla helpers.

At the risk of stating the obvious, make certain you have Java installed, and also that you have your path's properly specified in your command line.

Realplayer comes together in the DVD Eval of suse 10.0, no need to download separately.

Since none of the origional repositories links at the beginning of this post work anymore, anyone care to share ones that work? Opensuse.org happens to be completely useless.

Check the list of mirrors on the opensuse site and try those that are near you.
