URPMI SOURCES MANDRAKE 9.2


There are a few sources you can add to the package manager of Mandrake to get extra software.
Some of them everybody can add, a few ( last two ) are only for Club Members.

See here how it´s done:
 
QUOTE (Bruno @ Tips)
Go to a console, log in as 'su' and paste the line after the prompt and hit enter.
Now it should work and get the list . . . be patient, it takes a while.
Then as you get the prompt back, close the console ( Ctrl+d , 2x ).

Now that we have added the source to your software manager, we can have a look at all the packages:

Go to the MCC --> Software Management --> 'RpmDrake helps you install software packages' ( the icon with the + ). Now you will see the text : 'All packages' under the search-box., 'All packages' 'by group' change the by group in: 'by medium repository' and you will get a list with the sources you can choose from: CD1, CD2, CD3 and also the Update source and the just added source. Click in the little triangle in front of the new source, and a list will fold out with all the packages you can choose from . . . . FUN, MAGIC, BLISS ! 


Here they are: ( Don´t click on the links but paste them in a root-console ) YOU HAVE TO BE ON LINE !

Because frequently new packages are added and updated.
