Default Need assistant. Using The Perfect Setup and running into a problem

Greetings Everyone:

I just want to say this tutorial is quite awesome and thus far has been a breeze. The problem i'm having is while trying to add an "Installation Sources" on page 4 of the tutorial.

Quote:
Select Installation Source, then Add and enter a mirror near you. You can find a list of mirrors here: http://www.opensuse.org/Mirrors_Development_Build.

I selected this http mirror ( yes, it is an http mirror even though the URL starts with ftp :-) ):

ftp.uni-erlangen.de/pub/mirrors/opensuse/distribution/SL-10.0-OSS/inst-source
When I do this step, I get the following message:

Unable to create installation source
From URL 'http://suse.mirrors.tds.net/pub/opensuse/distribution/SL-10.0-OSS/inst-source'.
Details:
Unknow source type for http://suse.mirrors.tds.net/pub/open...SS/inst-source
Try Again?


Your help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Have you tried ftp.uni-erlangen.de/pub/mirrors/opensuse/distribution/SL-10.0-OSS/inst-source instead?

It's also possible that the repositories don't work anymore because SuSE 10.0 is now rather old. Maybe you should try 10.2 instead.

Falko,

Thanks for the reply. I've tried multiple mirrors, all returning the same exact message. I've tried all the ones here in the US, both FTP, and HTTP, and also a few from other regions of the world, with the same results.

I've even restarted the installation all together, thinking maybe I missed a step, or didn't do something, but to my dismay, it all comes to a halt in the same spot with this message.

Maybe you should really try SuSE 10.2.

But why do you try to use repositories for SuSE 10.0 then?
Take a look at the URLs, they all have SL-10.0-OSS in them...

I have been through the install of 10.0, 10.1, and 10.2 and that same area has always given me a problem, it is very fussy about the format also...

Honestly, I just kept plugging away at it until it finally accepted it...

try it making sure the first line (which should only be the URL address) does not start or end in "/" and the second line (which should be only the folder path at the URL) does not start with "/" but ends with "/"
