URPMI Adding Sources Error


While trying to add some sources I have experienced problems with all of them except the "plf" one. I get the following error with most servers I try
rsync error: some files could not be transferred (code 23) at main.c(636)
can anyone tell me what it means. I can post more if you need it.

I think the problem was that all the 9.2 mirrors were down - they still are. As a solution im using the 10.0 mirrors - I hope it shouldnt make too much of a difference.

Boffy, I wouldn't use the 10.0 mirrors for 9.2, take a look at...wait, I'll list the mirrors I just used today to update my sources. They are updated and accessable. *Note that I will leave a space between "ftp: and //ftp" so it won't come up as a link.

For 9.2

Main
Code:
# urpmi.addmedia main ftp: //ftp.proxad.net/pub/Distributions_Linux/Mandrakelinux/official/9.2/i586/Mandrake/RPMS/ with ../base/hdlist.cz
Contrib
Code:
# urpmi.addmedia contrib ftp: //ftp.proxad.net/pub/Distributions_Linux/Mandrakelinux/official/9.2/contrib/i586 with ../../i586/Mandrake/base/hdlist2.cz
Updates
Code:
# urpmi.addmedia --update updates ftp: //ftp.proxad.net/pub/Distributions_Linux/Mandrake/official/updates/9.2/RPMS/ with ../base/hdlist.cz
PLF
Code:
# urpmi.addmedia plf ftp: //ftp.proxad.net/pub/Distributions_Linux/plf/mandrake/9.2 with hdlist.cz
Have fun!

Thanks a lot they work great must just have been the mirrors I was using. I have resturctured it into the form given on the Easy URPMI website so anyone else looking at this can copy the whole thing in:
Code:
urpmi.addmedia main ftp://ftp.proxad.net/pub/Distributio...Mandrake/RPMS/ with ../base/hdlist.cz
urpmi.addmedia contrib ftp://ftp.proxad.net/pub/Distributio...2/contrib/i586 with ../../i586/Mandrake/base/hdlist2.cz
urpmi.addmedia --update updates ftp://ftp.proxad.net/pub/Distributio...ates/9.2/RPMS/ with ../base/hdlist.cz
urpmi.addmedia plf ftp://ftp.proxad.net/pub/Distributio...f/mandrake/9.2 with hdlist.cz
