Restoring system sources...
Parsing metadata for 20061219-202641...
Parsing metadata for SUSE-Linux-10.2-Updates...
Parsing RPM database...
Summary:
Nothing to do.

I see it saying it is looking at metadata for updates, so
it must think it knows where to find some. A service-list
says:

1 | Yes | Yes | YaST | 20061219-202641 | http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/10.2/repo/non-oss/ 2 | Yes | Yes | YUM | SUSE-Linux-10.2-Updates | http://ftp.ale.org/pub/suse/update/10.2 3 | No | Yes | YaST | 20061213-191726 | ftp://mirrors.kernel.org/opensuse/distribution/10.2/repo/oss/

Are there really no updates yet from the original DVD iso image?

Install smart package manager and you will find that there are lots of upgrades.

I followed all the instructions when installing 10.2 just to see if the zen/rug/whatever-the-mess-is-called would work as promised but it has been sitting here with not a damn peep out of it so I installed smart (as I did in 10.1) and 10.2 has been upgrading almost on a daily basis.

Cheers.
