I'm new to Suse (and Linux, for that matter) and was trying to follow
this great set of instructions to add support for things like Windows
media file formats.
I added the following RPM repositories to YAST:
That went fine, but when I opened Software Management in YAST, it said
"Reading package information..." which I assumed was normal - it has to
check what's available at the sites I added in order to build the list
I'll be searching.
However, it's never gotten beyond that point. I let it go all night and
all day today, and it's still "Reading package information..." for,
well, coming up on 24 hours now. I think it's had plenty of time to do
this, and it won't even let me close the window or abort it.
Any suggestions? It did the same thing when I added just the Packman
mirror, but I got to thinking it was hung and restarted the machine
(forcefully). This time I added more sources and decided to let it take
as long as it wanted, but this surely can't be correct. Or is it?
Slap me gently if I'm doing something stupid, I'm new at this...:-)
