urpmi not working

I can't seem to add any sources to my urmpi.

urpmi.addmedia texstar with
it appears it download a bunch of files then returns the following error:
retrieve of source hdlist (or synthesis) failed
no hdlist file found for medium "texstar"
examining synthesis file [/var/lib/urpmi/]
problem reading synthesis file of medium "texstar"
unable to update medium "texstar"
I've tried a bunch of different mirrors and I've even tried the Easy Urpmi script at, but those mirrors do the same thing.

Whenever I try to install a package it complains about not having a dependancies, asks me if I agree and then quits.

Whatup wit dat?

I'm using 9.2 AMD64 RC1

Texstar stopped making rpms for mandrake after 9.1 IIRC and your ftp link is dead. I think that explains it.
