Changing Update Server [solved]


Recommended Posts

I've just done a fresh install on a new hard drive.

After clicking on Mandrakelinux Update I chose a mirror which doesnt seem to have any updates (it says i've either installed them or there are none avaliable)


Can someone tell me how to change the server to a different one, there doesnt appear to be an option in that app


Thanks for any help

In a terminal, type as root

urpmi.removemedia -a


in order to remove all buggy servers.


Also type "man urpmi.removemedia" and "urpmi.removemedia --help" in a terminal in order to learn more about the options.


Once your mirrors are cleared, you can add new ones with easyurpmi.

PS: Check if you have activated all package types, bufixes, security patches and normal updates. AFAIK only bugfixes are activated by default. (dunno why)
