I have some updates on this.
I started up the novell-zmd stuff on my suse 10.1 www server with the
suse mirror in its local partition /scratch
The I did a:
rug sd 1
rug sd 1
finally a :
next I added the local dir to the www server like this:
rug sa --type=zypp
then I subscribed to it like this:
rug subscribe opensuse-local
after this I started up yast and the installations sources just appeared
and now it works fine.
The problem I am having now is with the suse clients that need to access
the local suse mirror via http. I tried the same aproach as above but I
get this error message when I try to add the repo.
/root# rug sa --type=zypp
Adding zypp service...
ERROR: Could not add

Got another problem now. I have managed to mirror both opensuse 10.1
and the suse updates 10.1. I have them both on a www server on our
internal network 10.0.x.x. I have several clients on our internal
network that need to install and update from this www mirror i made.
When I try to add an intallation source via yast I always get this
Unable to create installation source ?
Double check the path.
?Cannot create the installation source ?
Is this related to the novell-zmd stuff that is running on the
servers? Do I need to have this novell-zmd thing running? These are
servers and no one but root needs to be able to install software so I
don't really need novell-zmd right?
You do not need novell-zmd running, you can just disable it,
