Hi folks I am Mr Spagnol who wrote to Micro Mart in UK.

After installing Mandrake 9.1 you go to the following site:

http://plf.zarb.org/~nanardon

You select your distribution [9.1] and architecture [i586] and just below the version number check the box labelled "Show Specific Sources Too". Then click on "proceed to step 2".

Now select all the repositories, from the drop down lists select the one in your country or physically nearest if there isn't one.

When you've done all this click on "proceed to step 3". A load of text appears in the box at the bottom of the page. Start a terminal and switch to su (root). Now type each command from that box into the terminal (you can cut and paste) in turn.

When you have finished, go to Mandrake Control Centre / Software Management / Software Sources Manager and see how all these sources have been added to your source list. From time to time you should return here, click "Update" and select all the internet based sources so that your computer holds the latest list of available programs.

You now have Mandrake at its very best.

Anyway, now you can add Transcode and VCDtools, all the DVDcss stuff will follow, and K3b will be running at full power!

There's loads of other stuff, too. My personal favourite is a KDE Artwork update at Texstar which includes "The Matrix" screensaver (like the tumbling green characters in the well-known film). You will also be able to load MPlayer, much better than Xine (ie it works). There's also KBirthday (a kicker applet which warns you of forthcoming birthdays/anniversaries from your KDE address book).

Best of luck!

DAVE

Ok I did everything You said davecs, Yes this is awesome how I have a crapload of new stuff, rather than only what came on the cd's. Except I can't install the Transcode because I now can't find the libquicktime.so.0 dependency, And I still can't find VCD Tools, Any suggestions here?

You should find these at the "contrib" source. I have a DVD ROM from a British mag Linux Format which contains a repository of Contrib files for Mandrake 9.1. I understand this mag is sold in the US. Check them out at

www.linuxformat.co.uk

If all else fails, remember the other way to install Mandrake rpms:

1 - Install KPackage from your Mandrake discs.
2 - Go to www.google.com/linux
3 - Search for the file you want. Include your distro (ie search:

libquicktime.so.0 mandrake 9.1
)
4 - Download the file
5 - Install using KPackage
6 - Try VCD Tools again!

However, I am sure this is not necessary, just make sure you have a "contrib" source amongst your repositories set up in Software Update. Consult the PLF again if necessary!
