First, remember Google is your friend! Now, the following RPMs can be found in or another site that offers RPMs (I myself just looked for the RPM file name in Google and it directed me to the correct page):

(For newbies, to execute a RPM file you open a terminal, cd (directory/where/downloaded and type rpm -Uhv filename.rpm , I prefer to just copy the filename of the RPM file and paste it there)

1) Install perl-Config-IniFiles-2.38-3mdk.noarch.rpm
2) Install packdrake-5.0.20-1mdk.i586.rpm
3) Install rpmtools-5.0.20-1mdk.i586.rpm
4) Install rpmdrake-2.1.5-13.2.101mdk.i586.rpm
5) Install perl-URPM-1.11-1mdk.i586.rpm

I do not remember if that is the exact order, but remember to first download the files, if it tells you that certain dependency is missing, then look at the filename and check if you downloaded the RPM and install that RPM first.

Hopefully, this will be helpful to someone!!

Maybe I'm just a little dumb this evening, but I just don't grasp the aim of this article, nor do I see the relation between the title and the content...

Well maybe I see.

As far as I know, if you use the Mandrake/Mandriva distribution, you already have "urpmi", wether you just installed afresh, or did an upgrade. Nowadays or soon, it may be "smart" instead, but it's the same.

But if you don't use Mandrake/Mandriva, and you want to install urpmi (on Fedora for example), then I can understand the title (I suppose you would loose urpmi by upgrading Fedora... or not?), and the content...

... to an extent. Indeed, I acknowledge urpmi to be a wonderfull tool (I really like it), but isn't "yum" for Fedora equivalent?
