    Why don't you choose a different mirror? Its fairly simple.

    Its not about downloading from a different mirror. Its about that particular problem I am more interested in...Because they didn't provide any clue about password or username in their website...

    Maybe one of the mirrors is experiencing some issues etc, try 'anonymous' as username and also try it as password. Usually works.

    I have tried every possible combination of username and password (anonymous, guest, suse, opensuse etc.). I will try it again tomorrow...

    EDIT: According to this review it is not upto the mark. So the question is will it worth the effort??? Is there any openSuSE user here? Please share your experience...

    Yeah. I'm on OpenSuSE 10.2. I save these kind of troubles from downloading from http sources. Like Qwerty mentioned, there might be issues with the servers. I downloaded the CD versions though :) Nice distro. Quite happy with it :D

    I've used the 10.1-Remastered a couple of months back. I didn't like it really much because YaST was the slowest of all the critical tools I've ever come across. But its interface was a joy to experience, sadly my configuration of a 3.0 Prescott and a 512 MB RAM doesn't suit this.

    Qwerty you should have isntalled yum/smart. They're lot better. But, according to me they don't match up the power of apt.

    I did install smart, but that's a package manager you're talking about. YaST is much more than smart is, it has control-panel like looks and features and if that's slow, how more bad can it get?

    Best is use torrents. They are slower for some but definitely better to reduce loads on server.

    Actually Parag Karla has done this and posted it here. You can check it out at http://www.discoverlinux.blogspot.com for more details. He has posted some great screenshots. Since I'm a newbie I will write a small one in the review section. Keep an eye out there ;)
