Help with the mandrake update source manager
 
I broke it :(

Recently i was playing with the Mandrake update source package manager and i accidentally edited the update_source source, and then broke that, so i deleted it and tried to re-add it. This all look straight forward except that when i click the add button after filling all the forms and selecting the "Security Updates" radio button at the top it just says please wait then quits to the desktop. Then when i re-enter the source package update manager it says that i haven't add'd anything.
Anythoughts?

Or even can i completely reset the package update manager or re-install that?


Thanks.

open a terminal, su to root

and type

urpmi.update -a

this should reset all the currently registered sources


if this doesn't work

you can add the update sources from the easy urpmi page
