    Who the heck is FrankyU2, how did he get a SuSE repository, & how did it get in my repo list??!!

    As I've said, I RELIGIOUSLY check ALL addresses before I click on a link, or open a document, or open an attachment. TurboTax & Hauppauge TV pci cards, & WinTV. ------------------------------------- The enom address is the abuse address of the registrar. And can you even get through to the...

    Who the heck is FrankyU2, how did he get a SuSE repository, & how did it get in my repo list??!!

    As I alluded above, I can't trace back to the original link. It purported to link to a repo with files which might solve a problem I was having with Wine. I checked the address, noted it was a legit SuSE site, and clicked the link which added the repo addresses to my repo db. And then forgot...

    If you check out the whois for the U2Start domainName you'll smell 4 day old cod at low tide. No contacts. See if you can get through to the enom registrar. I can't.

    Who the heck is FrankyU2, how did he get a SuSE repository, & how did it get in my repo list??!!

    Again, yes, it appears the space is legit, but, as I noted above, it just came to me that FrankyU2=FU2. And the repo that was added to my site was Leap 15.2, NOT 15.1. And 15.2, which was the area full of garbage, has now been deleted. Oops, my error. I see that 15.1 WAS the area I was...

    Who the heck is FrankyU2, how did he get a SuSE repository, & how did it get in my repo list??!!

    1, I see this now. It does appear that SuSE has a personal space of some kind for it's contributors. 2. What you have listed here is Leap 15.1 which has just been superseded by 15.2. And you've just listed the ReadMe file. There's 4 directories of files. 3, While (OOOoooooooKKKKKKK. It just...

    Who the heck is FrankyU2, how did he get a SuSE repository, & how did it get in my repo list??!!

    That it LOOKS legit is what scares me. (Before I EVER click on ANY unknown link I look at the underlying address. This appeared to be a legit SuSE site.) Thanks for the link to the instr. I'll be checking that out. I did notice all the other names. Perhaps in this age of social media, SuSE...

    Who the heck is FrankyU2, how did he get a SuSE repository, & how did it get in my repo list??!!

    First, thanks to the person who suggested below that I should have gone directly to SuSE. That's perhaps correct. I think I wanted to get a more unofficial read on this situation before making an 'official' complaint. Also, SuSE has gone through multiple hands, including those of Microsoft, &...

    Who the heck is FrankyU2, how did he get a SuSE repository, & how did it get in my repo list??!!

    "...have you installed any 3rd party applications on there?" All my aps are from SuSE repos. I don't even load from the 'less than stable' or 'unofficial developer' repos. As I noted elsewhere, I may have clicked on a link (at a site called GIThub or GTIhub) which purported to have files...

    Who the heck is FrankyU2, how did he get a SuSE repository, & how did it get in my repo list??!!

    Who the heck is FrankyU2, how did he get a repository, & how did it get in my repo list??!! I'm installing LEAP 15.2 on another machine & I looked at the repositories on this machine to get the names of the extra ones (PackMan, etc) and I see this repository: http...
