That was a incomplete post. In fact, I’ve tried other times and different dependencies was said to be unavailable, not only the kernel devel itself.

Our ABF server gets an update.
All will be fine in a bit :slight_smile:


What you posted only shows a failed download probably because abf-downloads.org was down. So we need to see the other errors to help. Unless it’s this

When abf-downloads.org is down you can use a mirror. Currently to do that you need to manually edit repos or temporarily enable the mirror. See the post by @mandian here. Or go to the beginning of that thread for how to edit the repos.

I think the geniuses are close to having MirrorManager ready for Lx 4 but they are keeping it a secret.
