      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

Question about RPM repositories

Recommended Posts

I've been searching the web for the past 3 hours, looking for RPM repositores for 9.2. So far I'll i've come across are links to a site that no longer exists http://plf.zarb.org and links that require joining the mandrake club. While i'm not opposed to supporting the mandrake project, I havn't even been able to find RPMs of some of the programs i use all the time on other distros (Mozilla firebird and thunderbird for example). I'm not opposed to compiling things, but whats the point of the supposed wealth of RPMS that drew me to mandrake, if i'm compiling everything. Am I missing something, or do i really have to join the mandrake club to have access to repositores to feed to RPMDrake? Please help.

Welcome to the board.

That site does exist, its just often very slow to load up.

There main page for adding sources is http://urpmi.org/easyurpmi/index.php

You can also get all their own compiled files on our server (see the download link top of page)

At the top of this page also, is "Weblinks" you will find a variety of sites holding Mandrake RPMs.
