mythtv install woes - urpmi not working right


Hi,

I hope someone can help. Today I downloaded the LE2006 ISO's, burned them and installed it fresh. I spent all day getting my various hardware parts working right (tuner, capture, nvidia display). Now I'm at the point where I want to install mythtv and I'm getting these errors...

The following packages can't be installed because they depend on packages
that are older than the installed ones:
libqt3-mysql-3.3.4-23mdk
mythtv-backend-0.18.2-0.7467.1.1.20060plf
mythtv-setup-0.18.2-0.7467.1.1.20060plf
Continue installation anyway? (Y/n) y
The package(s) are already installed


Before that, my LE2006 fresh install went fine. I opted to update packages during the install process. Then when mandriva was up and happy, I updated all my sources via easyurpmi, did a 'urpmi --auto-select --auto' and thought I was golden. How do I resolve the mythtv urpmi errors above?


p.s. I thought I would go the route of compiling mythtv since I got these errors, but some of the libraries I need to compile against gave the same error as above.

Thank you.

Which distro are you using? 2005LE or 2006? Post your /etc/urpmi/urpmi.cfg file.

Hi TK,

Well...I ended up reinstalling from the CD's and not choosing to upgrade as part of the install process. I then updated my urpmi and upgraded that way. I think it ended up upgrading about 58 packages. Funny...when I upgraded via the image install process I remembering it upgrading around 480 or so packages. I wonder if the mirror I randomly chose from the list was pointing to cooker files as well.

Needless to say, I'm fine now...but it was rather painful getting there. I saved the old log directory to a tar before wiping the disk again. Is there a particular file I can look in to determine which mirror was contacted during the base install?

Thanks

Maybe in /var/log/urpmi.log but I'm not sure. Upgrades always have problems over clean installs.
