I hope that I am posting to the appropriate list for this, I am sort of
new with SuSE.

Ver 8.1
Minimal install (not an upgrade) on 2 machine. Both have the same

Issue: Cannot perform an online update of my system. I receive an error
of not being able to initialize the session.

I can however establish a manual ftp connection, and I do have a working
network connection via DHCP across a broadband ISP.
I have tried the wget update from SuSE using the yast2rpmmanagager
update, no success. I am lost as to what to do from here on out. I do
know that I do not have a wgetrc file in my /etc dir. I am assuming
that the minimal install does not include support for online update. I
can not perform another install because of the GUI install. My
machine(s) crashes EVERY time without the updates. one is a Toshiba
laptop satellite 2545cds and a desktop Asus a7v AMD 1 GHz, promise
controller. I have resolved the a7v promise issues, but the GUI crashes
a lot so I went back to a minimal install. I hope this can help you
help me. I am frustrated, I have posted a support request to SuSE an
have yet to hear back, and if I call their support it is long distance
and there is no holding QUE so it is a shot in the dark to speak with

Thanks, Aaron
