Sorry to hear it didn't work. The DVD most likely needs to be mounted before you could do it the way you are trying.

Hello,

How do I properly download the entire ftp directory? Saving every individual file through my browser is tedious. Can I connect through gFTP? My attempts didn't work. Here's a working sample FTP address:

ftp://carroll.cac.psu.edu/pub/linux/...ial/10.0/i586/

I have used gFTP and it works kinda OK. You have to be careful which directory you select though. I think gFtp gets confused by some of the symlinks and gets stuck in an endless loop trying to retrieve all the filenames. lftp is a commandline ftp program I like to use to download entire trees.

I'd prefer to stay away from command line programs. I'm having no success in connecting.

upgrading from BETA

Hi,

I'm currently running mdk 10 Beta 2 and want to upgrade to Official. Is it possible to do this without reformatting, does anyone know? I suppose I could download all the RPMs but that sounds like a nightmare for dependencies.

You should have a choice to install or upgrade.

You can also upgrade from an existing Mandrake installation with the urpmi command. Just change your urpmi sources to official 10.0 sources. (If you don't know how, google 'easy urpmi.')

I've used urpmi to upgrade 9.1 -> 9.2 -> 10.0 with no real problems. It's really convenient and requires no CD burning and no downloading of stuff you don't need. However it requires a little more skill than upgrading with ISOs. You must backup your valuable stuff first!

You do 'urpmi --auto-select --force'. Then (probably) you'll see that not everything installed, due to a problem with the perl-base package. So do 'urpmi --allow-nodeps perl-base'. Then again 'urpmi --auto-select --force'. Then 'urpmi kernel' and pick the kernel you want. Then reboot.

The only issue I've seen with 9.2 -> 10.0 is that after you've completely upgraded you need to install a new Kmail package, because they changed the name or something. So you do
'urpme kdenetwork-kmail' and then 'urpmi kdepim-kmail'.

You can also do a network install, which is IMO also easier/more convenient than waiting for ISOs. You can do this with floppies (using network.img and network_drivers.img, found at any 10.0 official mirror under the 'images' directory) or with a CD using boot.iso (found at the same place).

Just my $.02.

FYI, If you have already downloaded all the files and don't want to wait for iso's there is a script in i586/misc directory called MakeCD. Guess what that script does!
