Adding repository nVidia Graphics Drivers failed - OpenSUSE 12.1

Hello everyone,

The threads name is the message i receive if i try to add the nVidia
repositories from the community repositories, in YaST.

If i try to manually add, YaST gives: 

Unable to create repository from URL' 
ftp://download.nvidia.com/opensuse/12.1/i586/

Change the URL and try again?


When i tried the "one-click-install" method to install nvidia drivers,
from here:
'SDB:NVIDIA drivers - openSUSE'
(http://en.opensuse.org/SDB:NVIDIA_drivers)

Yast gives: An error occurred while initializing the software
repository. Details:
nVidia Graphics Drivers: [|] Valid metadata not found at specified URL
(s)
History:
- [|] Repository type can't be determined.

Try again?

I tried adding via terminal, using:
zypper ar -f ftp://download.nvidia.com/opensuse/12.1/

but i get then the usage instructions for zypper...


When i open ftp://download.nvidia.com/opensuse/12.1/i586/ with my
browser, i can see folders there, but they are all empty...

I noticed my other repositories are http://, and this nvidia
repository, is a ftp:// type. I wonder if this has something to do with
one of the yast messages, saying "[|] Repository type can't be
determined." ?

Could someone open the repository page and see if this is the same
there? I have no idea what that could be...at least seems to be some
networking issue...


Thanks in advance!

So I have no idea what is going on with the nVIDIA repo, but there is
another way to go.  Have a look at these blogs for more information.

sorry, i forgot to add this:

other users experienced the same issue:

http://tinyurl.com/7uob7bx
and
http://tinyurl.com/6wsovu3

i tested disabling ipv6 and rebooted, but this is still the same.

from other computers, with windows and linux systems, (all them
different networks) the folders were empty as well. 
My internet is working fine, and i can do updates normally. 

i also tested configuring proxy in yast. i enabled proxy and to http
proxy url i added http://, to ftp proxy url i added ftp:// and rebooted.
didnt work as well...

So you see empty folders too, when you open the link?
Thanks for the reply.

So it is down. You will have to wait some hours or days till they put it up
again.

jdmcdaniel3,
I remembered when i used debian i had to install the drivers in the
"hardway", how is called here. So i did this again with openSUSE and
this is alright. Thank you for the links!
It seems the repo is really down, so the thread is solved

Yes, the nVIDIA repo is blank and I do not know why.  Loading the
nVIDIA driver the hard way would be the same here except for one thing,
my SANDI bash script automates the process for you using DKMS.  There
have been some changes to the the most recent kernel's for versions 3.3
and now 3.4 that requires special fixes to the nVIDIA driver to work. 
This may be what is going on with the repo in some sort of attempted
fix, but I am not really sure what is going on.

Thank You,

Nvidia drivers with 12.1
Here's a comment for anybody else having the same problem. Basic problem: GUI does not load with NVIDIA drivers in opensuse 12.1 (also in 11.4 and 11.3) Hardware: NVIDIA 7300 GS Situation: Fresh install of 12.1 and it worked OK, GUI loaded and system was OK but graphics a bit sluggish. I installed the NIVIDIA drivers and then it would not load GUI:(. I downloaded the nvidia drivers, file "NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-285.05.09.run" and executed it. The nvidia install automatically removed the nouveau driver. When logging in it would display all of the icons but fail ...
