Missing mirrors in Software Media Manager


Hi,

Just a quick question...

I've either lost or removed (probably the latter) all the mirrors in Software Media Manager on my Mandrake 10 installation. Please could someone give me a few that I could insert? (Preferably as close to the UK as possible, and also preferably HTTP mirrors, as the proxy where I am doesn't allow FTP ). Although FTP will be useful for when I get home.

Cheers,
Zombie13.

Sorry, unSpawn - I accidentally posted in the wrong area and didn't know what to do about it. It's not a normal thing, I never purposely abuse forums.

Cheers,
Zombie13.

go to Easy URPMI to set up various contrib, main, PLF, & cooker (if ya like) sources. just follow the 3 easy steps & it'll walk you right through it. if you also lost your CD sources & want them back let me know & i'll walk you through that. but, if you set up a "main" source via Easy Urpmi, you really don't need the local CD sources. if you need update sources, just use MCC->software update manager. click it to look for updates & if a mirror isn't set up, it will ask you to choose one from a list & walk you through it.
