urpmi command

Hello. What command could I use so urpmi will quit asking me for cd 4? ,,,as well where could I update OpenSSL and SSH to the most secure versions? I forget the command to find out what version of those I currently have...I guess I can't remember much at all...*
(I think I'll change my sig to the older I get the more senile I become)
Thank you.

im on slackware so this is from memory. I believe for the urpmi problem you can remove all media by using "urpmi.removemedia -a" , if thats not the command its something similar. then go to and generate new media locations off of a correct repository.

to see what ssh you using use "ssh -V" at the command line and it will tell you. to see if its uptodate just use the urpmi command after you have it setup. if your worried about about the security then edit you config files in "/etc/ssh/" directory
