      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      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

Does it not come with 3.5.6 already installed in it?

 

What's new since Mandriva Linux 2007

Major desktop components

 

KDE 3.5.6

*

 

GNOME 2.18

*

 

I mean I use Gnome so i'm not sure but what are these for if it says it has 3.5.6 already?

First is build for mandriva 2007.1 that will be out officially in some days, then mandirva kde has errors and flaws, for example doesnt have an Home icon or to run konqueror as root and this kde is build with pch, its a faster kde.

hi..

 

i have configured your repository, as ever :thumbs::thumbs: , and never had any problem... but now that i have installed mandriva 2007.1 when i update my system i get this error:

 

http://www.mde.djura.org/2007.1/RPMS/libkd...2007.1.i586.rpm

...retrieving failed: curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404

 

...retrieving failed: curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404

...retrieving failed: curl failed: exited with 22

 

 

in the website the kde packages are inside a folder named 3.5.6, is that right? or the repository isn't vailable yet? and i'm just trashing my system?

 

thanks for your time :D

When i created the 2007.1 MDE repos i forgot to generate hdlists files, but that was already fixed some days ago, so you can go now and update your MDE repos.

You may want to update your urpmi database

 

and also tried to use synthesis.hdlist.cz and it gives me this error

Im sorry but sems to exist some problems with the file synthesis.hdlist.cz, so instead you could do:

 

urpmi.addmedia MDE http://www.mde.djura.org/2007.1/RPMS with hdlist.cz

 

but this will not install the kde rpms, so untill the script that generates hdlists files is fixed please download the kde rpms to you hd and then create a local media and install them from there.

I have check the script and this is a bug from the package rpmtools done by mandriva that when generating hdlists files doesnt set anymore the recursive option, so doesnt search/add subfolders.

 

So to workaround this untill this annoying bug can be fixed, i will move the kde rpms to the RPMS folder.

In fact this is a more complicated problem, this is a urpmi problem that isnt able to recusivelly search inside sufolders that exist in RPMS folder.

 

So i think the best option is to just start using smart and i will post in MDE webpage how to add the MDE repos to smart.

 

Meanwhile run this as rooter to add MDE repo to smart:

 

smart channel -y --add MDE type=urpmi baseurl=http://www.mde.djura.org/2007.1/RPMS hdlurl=hdlist.cz
