Try it from the software installer gui.

"Mandriva Control Center". (MCC)

You can browse to the file or search from there if the repo is set-up.

Oh !!!! Thanks

I had download it, it takes very long time and when I try urpmi libqt3-devel it can found the package,(No package named libqt3-devel),
I'm in Indonesia

I type it from [root@localhost ~], where should I type the command
is it on the [root@localhost account(home account)]or the location can be from anywhere as long as I'm at the root.

I also got advised to instaled development application using this

urpmi gcc-c++
urpmi make

How do you think ??

sorry for being dummies, asking you so many questions.

Well, you will need them for building packages.(gcc-c++ make)

There may be more packages, depending on what you have installed now.

Your location helps me with your english, which is quite good, but I have to guess sometimes.

No Offence intended.

If you goto the directory where you downloaded the package you could use rpm or urpmi to install it.

I hope you see that the repo database is just a list of the available packages and the info for each one.

You will need to be root/admin to install packages/programs.

So, su to root...

su (type in root password)

rpm -ivh *.rpm

will install all the rpm's you have in that directory

But may balk with dependants not being available.

The other option, also from the command line...

same as before.. cd to the directory containing the downloaded rpms.

su (to root, type in root password)

urpmi *.rpm

That will try to solve any deps, using the repo hdlists you downloaded before.


It may ask you questions, like a choice between one version or another.

Be care full, as you don't want to end up upgrading the whole system. Takes ages.

See if that helps, Glenn

it says no packaged name libqt3-devel, I try to search libqt3-devel throught software management,but there is no search result for that.

However I found file named lsb-build-qt3-devel(version 3.1.1-4mdv2007.0), and those package are unable to installed [I type urpmi lsb-build-qt3-devel ]due to unsatisfied gcc-c++,

Is that means that I failed in download libqt3-devel, however how can I get
gcc-++ ?

because I failed add those gcc_++ throught "Configure media sources" menu on Mandriva Control Center...



By the way do you have any tips to upgrade from mandriva 2008.0 to mandriva 2009.0 using urpmi command (if that possible ?)

can you paste the contents of the file...

/etc/urpmi/urpmi.cfg

Please?

Everything relies on the version of gcc and glibc.

Those 2 files/packages put a limit on what version you can install.

That can only work if you have successfully downloaded the hdlists with urpmi.addmedia

sorry, that's not quite right...

"Configure Media Sources" is the gui for urpmi.addmedia

It should work.

lsb = linux standard base, If you go this way it could be more complicated.

Your system is quite old, I have forgotten too much about it.

Try to cut the name a bit. Like

urpmi qt3

Then "use the tab key to auto complete" the name (from the repo) from the konsole(cli).

Here is the name from the repo you named before.
Code:
ftp://mirrors.secsup.org/pub/linux/mandrake/Mandrakelinux/official/2008.0/i586/media/main/release/libqt3-devel-3.3.8-8mdv2008.0.i586.rpm
Sometimes it want the full name, not just the first bit, but the version too.

It's fussy (temperamental).

It is possible to upgrade from one version to another as long as it is not too distant,

because of the changes in dependent packages and package name changes.

If you want to try it, BACK UP FIRST!

then go to easy-urpmi zarb.net or something, there is a few of them, but basically the same thing.

Follow the instruction carefully.

I do not advise this unless you have a firm knowledge of the cli and the tools requires to install and remove packages.

It's dangerous, you could wipe your system! (break it.)

Regards, Glenn
