hi. im trying to update my urpmi sources, and i am having some serious difficulty. I hope you can help. Here is what I do:
root@hydramax blackhawk]# urpmi.removemedia -a
nothing to remove (use urpmi.addmedia to add a media)
[root@hydramax blackhawk]# urpmi.addmedia --update updates ftp://ftp.cica.es/pub/Linux/Mandrake...1/main_updates
added medium updates
retrieving source hdlist (or synthesis) of "updates"...
found probed hdlist (or synthesis) as media_info/hdlist.cz
examining synthesis file [/var/lib/urpmi/synthesis.hdlist.updates.cz]
[root@hydramax blackhawk]# urpmi.update -a
nothing to update (use urpmi.addmedia to add a media)
See, it looks like its retrieving the list, even shows me the progress of the download, but its apperently not adding the info to urpmi's database or whatever. I cant install anything, or browse for software. I have also tried using rpmdrakes software media manager, with no luck. any help please!
