Hello, I need a little help with easyurpmi

I'm new to all this, so I might be asking a question already answered. I did search the forum, but didn't find any good answer, or maybe my searching skills are bad.

Anyway, I followed kaega2's post on easyurpmi, and all I got from the root console was this,
  • [root@online root]# urpmi.addmedia plf with
    added medium plf
    computing md5sum of existing source hdlist (or synthesis)
    retrieving source hdlist (or synthesis) of "plf"...
    found probed hdlist (or synthesis) as
    ...retrieving done
    examining hdlist file [/var/cache/urpmi/partial/]
    writing list file for medium "plf"
    examining pubkey file of "plf"...
    performing second pass to compute dependencies

    examining hdlist file [/var/lib/urpmi/]
    built hdlist synthesis file for medium "plf"
    found 0 headers in cache
    removing 0 obsolete headers in cache
    write config file [/etc/urpmi/urpmi.cfg]

And yes, I tried all the different ftp's.
I have the downloaded version of mandrake 10.0, you know, the three iso's. And it doesn't seem to update in any way. It's the part with " found 0 headers in cache" that tells me it didn't update. (of course the xx isn't part of it, I just haven't posted enough here to have the possibility to do link posting)

So what do I do to update now. Please advise.

Edit: Yes, stupid me, I just thought that firefox 0.9.1 and mozilla 1.7.1 would show up, but maybe they don't show up yet. So yes, now it seem's to work, I just got confused by "0 headers updated" thing.

So it takes som time to before new programs are added to the ftp's then?

Since you are just adding these, they won't find any obsolete headers - have you tried just using it?

You must add at least the source "updates"!
Normally I add also the source "contrib".
