View Full Version : Downloading individual .src.rpm packages

Is there somewhere I can download individual .src.rpm packages from? I
thought I once saw such a place but I can't recall where it was and
can't find such a thing now. I thought it might have been listed under
Mirror Credentials section of the Customer Centre, but it's not.

I'm currently waiting for the 6.6GB SLED-11-SP1-DVD-i586-GM-DVD2.iso to
finish downloading (fortunately I'm getting ~4.5MB/s :) ), which seems
rather inefficient given I only want to look at one .src.rpm
(sane-backends - I find myself needing a newer version of sane than is
in SLED 11 SP1). I also recently deleted the copy of
SLED-11-SP1-DVD-i586-GM-DVD2.iso to free up space on my harddisk!

Hi
If there is an update/patch then there is normally a src rpm as well.
Do you get Novell Patch Notification emails, links are there?

I'm assuming adding DVD2 as an 'add-on-product' via YaST would add
the online src repository.

Yeah I get the notification emails. Found the source links, but that's
only sources for updates. There's sources in the Updates repo, which is
probably what I was thinking I'd seen before, but there's no sources in
the Pool repo. Looks like if you want sources for what's in the Pool
repo you have to download DVD2.
