Re: [opensuse] Nvidia Leap Repository?
Hi Andrei,

[...]
uhm, in this case, Nvidia seems to have shut down their repo site at all.
People wrote, one can't access them with a browser, but with yast or
zypper, but here zypper/yast also run into a timeout when trying to
refresh the repo. And this is the case for 42.2, not only for 42.3.


I just added nVidia repo for testing and it worked just fine on 42.2. So
I have no idea what all this fuss is about. nVidia repo was never
provided until final release, and it was true for all past versions, so
I do not understand why people suddenly expect it for 42.3 either.

no, I don't *expected* it for 42.3 - it would have been great for testing
42.3, though.

But it didn't work for 42.2 - neither with zypper nor with yast.
It always ran into a timeout or into an error, when I tried to refresh
the repo or remove and add the repo.

But this was obviously my fault:

------------------------< snip snip snip >-----------------------------
zypper ar -n 'nvidia' -c -f ftp://download.nvidia.com/opensuse/leap/42.2 nvidia
Adding repository 'nvidia' [..
Timeout exceeded when accessing
'ftp://download.nvidia.com/opensuse/leap/42.2/repodata/repomd.xml'.
------------------------< snip snip snip >-----------------------------

------------------------< snip snip snip >-----------------------------
zypper ar -n 'nvidia' -c -f http://download.nvidia.com/opensuse/leap/42.2 nvidia
Adding repository 'nvidia'
.......................................................................................[done]
Repository 'nvidia' successfully added
------------------------< snip snip snip >-----------------------------

So the repo access via ftp is no longer available, access via http and
a browser also does not work, but access via http and using zypper or
yast works.

Sorry, I didn't realize, that ftp has been gone.

Bye.
Michael.
