Question KDE Software Management & Updates (Mandriva 2007)

Greetings !

I am trying to update my Mandriva 2007.0 to Mandriva 2007.1.

I am using "Mandriva Linux Control Center" / "Software Management".

When I start it has selected "Security Updates" and I thought that would
be a reasonable start. It then displays groups of programs in a list.

My issue is this: Should I have to collapse each group and subgroup and
check every single component for update ??? I mean there are *many*....

Isn't there a way to choose "All" and then hit 'Apply'?

Is there a commandline thingy to update from 2007.0 to 2007.1?
(and no urpmi isn't there, it says "unkown command")

Best Regards, Genin

Are you logged in as root? Then there should be urpmi. What's the output of
Code:
which urpmi
?

BTW, this script in chapter 7 on http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_se...ndriva_2007_p4 might just be what you need.

Wooohooo
I forgot that root has diffrent settings.... I SU:ed from my user and then urpmi
was found ! I the ran the follwing from a console:
Code:
urpmi.update -a; urpmi --update --auto-select --auto
It then flooded the console with updates! Some 50 of them.

After that I went into Packagemanager again and almost all from "All Updates"
where gone. I checked the rest manually and let the packagemanager update
those. Then it said there was no packages to update and it was empty.(list)

Howevere when I rebooted it still says Mandriva 2007.0 and not 2007.1
