Just add the DISCONTINUED repo to your home, and all is fine.

and then your next stop would be "evergreen" which hasn't picked up 11.3
yet.

Good grief.

The fact that people have already gone to the trouble to create
"Evergreen", a valiant but imperfect kludge, speaks for itself.

Not really, you are expecting something that is not provided from a
*product that is presented up front as not-a-long-term-solution*, ie:
18 mos

You *did* read the notices about the *supported* life of the product when
you chose it for install, so why expect more now?

If you really need long term, you need to use the commercial SuSE
offerings, or the adaptations people are graciously maintaining as have
been described to you.

The choice is yours as it was when you originally installed.
