RPM update will not recognize Mandriva CDs


I am attempting to find updates and fixes to my installed programs using the RPM utility in Mandriva 2006. After selecting a series of updates to install the system request I insert "Mandriva Free CD#2" after inserting the cd it makes the same request. If I hit cancel it stops the update process. Help please.

Maybe try burning a new CD or using online Mandriva rpm sources.

After clicking around I found a screen which allows me to select where the package managers looks for RPMs. I de-selected Mandriva CD#1, CD#2, and CD#3. Now everything works fine.

I had the same thing.

I've disallowed the CD as a resource, and i'm using purely the easyurpmi resources detailled in the sticky at the top of the Distros>Mandriva forum.
No problems thus far.

When I install Mandriva, I always remove the CD sources, so maybe thats why I have never had that problem.
