I am now running Firefox v2.0.0.18 (x86_64). I tried to use YaST to
install Firefox v3.0.5 (x86_64) -- which is the current release that YaST
shows me. The repository that I have been given is:
<http://downloads.opensuse.org/repositories/openSUSE_10.3/ia64>.

The YsST Package Installation window comes up; while the progress
indicator is still at 0%, the Package Installation window collapses, and
nothing is done.

I went to the URL given above. What I found there is in fact a whole list
of repositories, as follows:

So I now understand that I am to choose one of these as the repository to
use. I would like some advice about this.
