Whenever I open the terminal to install something from the repositories, it takes like 1 minute to 'build' them and all that junk. I recently switched from Ubuntu and apt never had this issue. What can I do to reduce this?

Zypper auto-refreshes the repos when you run it. Disable it.

Head over to YaST, click on Software and then Software Repositories.

Next,Select the repo, and ensure that Automatically refresh is disabled.

thanks! is it safe to remove auto refresh on all repos? –  MaxMackie Apr 1 '11 at 12:05
    
@MaxMackie - yes, it is. I generally disable them since my 'net connection is slow. Just remember to do zypper ref before checking for updates to your packages. –  Sathya Apr 1 '11 at 12:07
