Missing Packages

I just re-installed Mandriva 2006, copied the CDs to the drive during installation and ran the updates at . But now some of my favorite packages aren't showing up available for install. Here are the ones I've noticed so far:


Is there something I've done wrong? I even re-ran the easyurpmi updates to make sure I didn't miss one and everything is fine so why are my packages returning the error that they don't exist?

The only thing I did differently this time was install apache. At first I wanted to make it a webserver as well as PC, but after deciding against it later (I decided just to use the applet built into KDE) I just removed apache by running:
urpme apache-conf
This is the only time I've ever had this problem, and the only time I've ever installed apache initially. Could it be related?

Are you sure you have the main, contrib, updates and plf repos setup? I have those repos setup and I can find all the packages you mentioned. Maybe you should delete all your online sources and start from scratch.
