Hi, I also have a few mandriva-release-xxxxxx-2009.0 packages installed.

If you really want the common package, using urpmi from a konsole/shell, type this...

urpmi --allow-nodeps --allow-force (package-name)

You don't say what the problem is,

any one of these lines will/should give you a version as output from a shell...

commands for knowing which linux is running, first and last ones...
Code:
lsb_release -a
cat /etc/redhat-release
cat /etc/*release*
cat /etc/*version*
What is the error you got before?

regards Glenn

You have tried the obvious

1. run 'rpm --rebuilddb' as root
2. run some fancy gui package manager and search for them in the database.

Install them manually

rpm -ivh --force your.rpm

OK, if you have tried the above, remove them manually then re-install them.

use

rpm -e --nodeps --force (package name)

That will stop it from trying to remove/erase the deps as well. Which will be really long and will break your system.

Don't reboot.

Then re-install them.

Use the MCC software manager you mentioned above.

Hope that helps you, Glenn

I think there's also a --dbonly option to rpm, which means it only updates the database.

man rpm is your friend have a pint and a notebook ready!

when i did the command rpm -e --nodeps --force mandriva-release-common-2009.0-0.11mdv2009.0.i586.rpm
he says this rpm: only installation, upgrading, rmsource and rmspec may be forced

OK then, try to install the new ones over the old ones (as rpm suggests),

urpmi --allow-nodeps --allow-force (package name)

or rpm -Uvh (package-name) to update instead of Install.

That should do it.

Don't you get support from Mandriva with the power pack?

If so it's important to notify them, a bug may be rectified.

Regards, Glenn

I second the Pint!
