Different installations from same CD causing repository problems??
I just got Mandriva 2008 free edition. Something is very strange. I first installed on my PC and when I went too DrakConf to add software from the repositories, no repositories were available. The program was unable to download the repository list, too, when I click on add.
Later, I installed Mandriva on a Virtual Machine running under Virtualbox, in Windows. Imagine my surprise to find that in the virtual machine installation, the repositories were already available, with no other configuration needed.
So my question: why does this happen? I am installing from the same disc, so the installations should be the same. What am I doing wrong? How can I configure the broken repository list? Please, I need to install extra packages, help me!
