YAST: Unable to create repository?

view full story

http://forums.opensuse.org – Why does this happen? I am (this time) trying to install Atmel's gnu-avr toolchain. Atmel's web site gives the repository as http:www.atmel.no/avr32/suse/11.0/i586. I put that into YAST2's repository manager, and it comes back with "unable to create repository from URL..." Why does this happen? It's hardly unique to the Atmel repository: in fact, it seems to be YAST's default behavior on ANYTHING other than the official SUSE repos. Is there some way to fix this, or bypass it with some other installation tool, so I can get the software I need? Thanks, James (Distributions)
