preparation for LFS201 course
In preparation for running the LFS201 course/running labs, I downloaded the VM prebuilt image : OpenSUSE-Leap-15-1 and loaded it under VMware workstation realplayer 15. When I ran the ready-for.sh script (under my training login) it showed that i was ready to begin the course but also displayed a message indicating that some packages could be missing (so not clear whether these warnings are superfluous or ok to proceed with the course ?
Working on the assumption that we were missing some packages I ran ./ready-for.sh –install LFS201 which threw metadata errors below I note that the URL embedded links below within the script reference the non-secure http://download.opensuse.org/update/leap/15.1/non-oss/ url (which are inaccessible from any of our browsers)
However I note that I manually enter the secure URL https://download.opensuse.org/update/leap/15.1/non-oss/ url into my web browser. In place of http://download.opensuse.org/update/leap/15.1/non-oss/ I could access the content okay. I then updated the ready-for.sh script by changing http to https and reran with the result below. I’m assuming the issue lies with firewall restrictions associated with network connectivity through the VM but before I go ahead and investigate these restrictions, I just need someone to confirm whether the existing pre-built VM I’ve loaded should be suitablefor running the LFS201 course without the need for worrying about removing these restrictions /downloading any additional packages. ?
