Are there Mandrake 'repositories' like Debian and RedHat


I like the 'apt' repositories for Debian and RedHat *very* much for my servers but I am new with Mandrake 9.2 (very nice BTW!) for my laptop.

I heard something about 'urpmi' but can someone give met some url's or hints to find and install mdk rpm's from the internet?

Type in
man -a urpmi or
urpmi --help

But basicly the short command to make any of the urpmi repositories autonaticly usable is on the easy urmpi site at the bottom.

urpmi.addmedia (urpmirepositoryyouwant) or
urpmi.removemedia (repositoryyouwantremoved)


After you have the repositorys all set up try the command

urpmi (appyouwantupdated)
or
urpmi --auto-select
to update all of the system.


urpni --auto-select migvht mess up you system if you do this on mandrake 9.2 Some of the mirrors are not totaly up to date yet for some reason. Mandrake 9.1 works great though.
