Mandriva : Update problem


Hi,

I'm a fresh Mandriva user and I've got some problems when I want to update my entire system ...
indeed I'm using the two ways : I directly use urpmi thanks to shell terminal and I use the graphic tool too .... in the same time.
So I guess it occured some problems because of that way of using because when I run the update process I got that message :
Quote:
1 error occured :
mandriva-release < 2009.0-0.11mdv2009.0 is in conflict with mandriva-release-common-2009.0-0.11mdv2009.0.x86_64
and it stops the updating process ...

I configured my sources thanks to easy rpm (http://easyurpmi.zarb.org/)
I selected official and PLF sources (for 2009 x86_64 system).

Do you know what kind of thing I've got to do to resolve my problem ?


Thanks,

Looks like you've installed the 32bit version of Mandriva and are trying to update it with the 64bit repos. In your terminal type:
Code:
cat /etc/release
If you see anything like this: Mandriva Linux release 2009.0 (Official) for i586 you have the 32bit version installed. If that is the case you need to go back to easyurpmi and select the 32bit repos. Don't forget to remove your previous sources.

This is what I get :
Quote:
Mandriva Linux release 2009.0 (Official) for x86_64
I decide to remove all the sources and to install them directly
with theses commands to be sure nothing non-64bits-version-friendly would be installed :
Quote:
urpmi.addmedia --distrib --mirrorlist 'http://api.mandriva.com/mirrors/basic.2009.0.x86_64.list'
urpmi.addmedia --distrib --mirrorlist 'http://plf.zarb.org/mirrors/2009.0.x86_64.list'
But I get the same problem ...

I think I found the problem. I read somewhere that I've got to update one time Mandriva from the dvd before running internet updates ... Then I'm going to download another dvd iso and try it.

That shouldn't be necessary. You should remove the dvd from your sources list. Try this:
Code:
urpmi.update -a && urpmi --auto-select --auto
This will update your repos and then install any new updates automatically.

(not my idea but works perfectly in my system)
