Then I take it that now you have gcompris available? Happy to hear it. Do not know why you did not see it before. Just checked, it is in the contrib media repository.
In answer to your question:
Any sources you recommend?
I use the standard official and plf repositories as well as the not-so-standard SoS repositories which include:
main, contrib, main_updates, contrib_updates, main_backports, Contrib_backports, plf-free, plf-free_backports, plf-non-free, plf-non-free_backports, SoS-main, SoS-contrib, SoS-KDE356
All except the SoS repositories can be set up using Easy URPMI
. The SoS repositories must be set up using the information at SeerOfSouls
I strongly suggest you stick to the media source repositories you can set up at Easy URPMI
, and think twice about using the various backports media sources since the packages found there are not as well tested as those in the Official Main and Contrib, or the plf Free and Non-Free sources. Use of these repositories is accompanied by increased risk of software bugs and the possibility of decreased system stability. If you choose to use these sources, do so at your own risk.
With that said, I have Firefox 22.214.171.124, Opera 9.10, Flashplayer 126.96.36.199-1 (final), KDE 3.5.6 and a few other programs installed from packages built for use with Mandriva 2007.0. At the present time, all is well here, but that does not mean it will be so for all users, or remain so going forward.
My recommendation for which media sources to use is as follows:
Main, Main_updates, Contrib, Contrib_updates, plf-free, plf-non_free.
These sources will provide all the software choices you should need.
One final note: The software found in the Official Mandriva repositories (main, main_updates, contrib, and contrib_updates) is all 100% GPL'd open source software. The software found in plf is there because of legal issues (plf-free) or because it is proprietary, licensed software (plf-non_free). You should check local law to be sure the software in plf-free is not illegal for you to use where you are, and I think we all understand about the use of licensed, proprietary software.
