yast "reading package information"

I've seen having multiple ftp sources choke YaST before. Usually it's a better idea to disable one of them before trying to install new software.There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

I found that some ftp sites take a really long time the first time the package list is read. Since you are adding two, you may want to walk away for a while or just add one at a time (like Flatline mentioned).
Hope that helps,

Are you using the official SuSE site? Because I imagine it gets pretty clogged. Get a mirror, and yeah, do one at a time. That makes YaST happy. And we like YaST to be happy.
