Is it possible to update Mandriva, not using a live internet connection.
I'm wondering if i can update Mandriva offline or it is possible to save the my current PC updates and install it when i plan to reinstall my distro?

If you can get a updated latest DVD of Mandriva, then you can update it offline.

I have Mandriva version 2010.2, and i has a 3 desktops gnome, lxde, and kde.
I have tried to update it offline using media disk.
but i cant update it.

i can install a certain program using this disk (example: samba, printing tools, gimp, virtualbox and etc) but i cant update the whole system to be able to view all the software i need.

Thanks for the reply.
