Hi suse986,

> Do you really have to have a license subscription to get the packages?

You need to have your system registered, which can be also be done with a free 60-day trial license. Registering the system will add the repositories to your system - if you ever loose those, i.e. because you delete them manually, simply rerun suse_register without any parameters to get them re-added.

You may have to configure proxy settings (both in ~root/.curlrc and in /etc/sysconfig/proxy) to reach the registration service and repositories, depending on your setup. If your site is using an SMT server or SUSE Manager as a registration/update focal point, please contact that server's admin for details.
