nice, i love it, the urpmi thing. thanks for the useful tip, completely new to me.
however, this is not making any sense. i tried urpmi on binutils which was required by a gcc package i'm trying to install. like this
it gave me this, and i quote:
"Everything already installed"
and so i tried to install my gcc package again and it still said this, and i quote,
binutils >= 220.127.116.11.2-1mdk is needed by gcc-3.4.3-7mdk"
what the hell?!
