Automatic Mandriva Linux Media Setup

If you are using 2008.0 or older version, switch to the old interface.
If you are using smartpm instead of urpmi, switch to smartpm mode.

Switch to manual mirror selection (not recommended)
Switch to custom media selection (not recommended)


If you are currently running Cooker, selecting auto-detect as Version above will cause urpmi to automatically switch you to 2010.1 when it is released.


Official Mandriva distribution medias. These are the same sources that Rpmdrake adds. If you have installed your system using One Live installation, you should already have them. More info

To add the medias press the button below and select Open in the new window:


The PLF project maintains Mandriva Linux packages that cannot be included in the official Mandriva sources due to various reasons, such as Mandriva policies regarding software patents. More info

To add the medias press the button below and select Open in the new window:

Backport and testing medias are also added but disabled by default.
You can enable, disable and remove medias in Rpmdrake media settings (drakrpm-edit-media).


If you do not want to or cannot use the automatic set-up buttons above, you can run the following commands manually as root:

urpmi.addmedia --distrib --mirrorlist '$MIRRORLIST'
urpmi.addmedia --distrib --mirrorlist '$RELEASE.$ARCH.list'

(use this button if you have changed any settings above)
