We are still running an old version of SuSE SLES 8/x86_64. Recently,
we found that Oracle update to 10g we're trying to install needed a
more recent version. This system hasn't been updated for over a year,
and I need to know if the update procedure is still the same:
Bring up YOU
Let it connect to the download site (http://sdb2.suse.de/download
Log in and let it do an automatic update
It downloads and installs an update for Yast2 update utility, and the
utility crashes. Now when I try to do the complete install, it fails
at the log-in, everytime. It's as if the upgrade to Yast2 broke it.
The log-in screen shows the same username and password as what had worked
before, but I keep getting log-in failures.
Is there a config file that Yast uses to do its things, like logging me
into the download site? I need to undo what the upgrade process did,
and try to do a manual update of everything else.
Also, is there a way to manually download the update files, install them,
without using the Yast2 GUI?
