Mandrake 10.1 Mirror for updates


I have just installed Mandrake 10.1 instead of suse 9.1 to try it out and am having a few problems.

I want to use the update feature in mandrake control centre to update.

When I use it it tells me:

I cant find a suitable mirror.
There can be many reasons for this problem; the most
frequent is the case when the architecture of your processor is
not supported by Mandrakelinux Official Updates.

I have a P4 3.4 nothing to abnormal.

Does anyone have a solution. If I choose Media Manager and click add to add a mirror manually I need an address that I dont have and after doing some searching I am still clueless.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Go to easyurpmi. Setup the main, contrib, plf and update rpm repositories.
