Is anyone on this list aware of a problem with the Novell (SLES 10)
online update site ?

I registered a new subscription yesterday, but fail to download the
updates. I always get curl errors to the effect that the SSL certificate
doesn't verify:

Curl error for
Error code: Unrecognized error
Error message: SSL certificate problem, verify that the CA cert is OK.
error:14090086:SSL routines:SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE:certificate
verify failed

I got similar curl errors when I tried to update a new machine. The only
solution was to configure a mirror for the repositories in "Software
Repositories" and deactivate the preconfigured repositories that point to

My error messages occured when I tried to configure the online update:

Download failed:
Curl error for
Error code: Unrecognized error
Error message: connect() timed out!

Good luck!
Thanks a lot for your reply, Sandy. In the mean time, I found TID
#7002146 that explains that this problem could be caused by the local
clock being too far out of sync.

That was indeed the case: I'm setting up a new server, and hadn't
configured NTP yet.

Doing so solved it for me.


Cheers. Bye.
