» Packman for Factory

It has often been requested in the past, and we're finally building Packman packages for openSUSE Factory (the openSUSE development tree). As Factory is in almost permanent flux, we are building against openSUSE Factory snapshots instead. We don't build everything against factory either, as we only have limited build power, but essential applications such as MPlayer are there :)

Note that the repository currently is not signed.

What did I do wrong?

# zypper ar -r \
> ftp://packman.links2linux.org/pub/packman/suse/factory/Packman.repo
File '/pub/packman/suse/factory/Packman.repo' not found on medium 'ftp://packman.links2linux.org/'

Abort, retry, ignore? [a/r/i/?] (a):

Thanks,
Dwight Paige

I was able to add in Yast2 using these:

ftp://packman.links2linux.org/pub/packman/suse/11.2/

ftp://packman.links2linux.org/pub/packman/suse/factory/

I enabled the 11.2 one for now as I'm currently using the 11.2 OSS and NON-OSS repos. It seems to work just fine.

Thanks, now my M7 installation is useful again :)

dwightpaige79: sorry, was a problem I fixed later on, the rsync from our OBS instance removed the .repo file

Note that 11.2 is currently just a symbolic link to factory ;)

Oh, and please definitely use a mirror instead, don't use ftp://packman.links2linux.org/pub/packman/suse/factory/ directly.

I would recommend the Skynet mirror, but the factory subdirectory should be mirrored on all the other sites as well.

I am now using a repository in Packman Factory. It definitely works.

Thanks for all your good work.
