    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

    I think so...

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

    BTW, this script in chapter 7 on http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_mandriva_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:
    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 :mad:

    Uhh why is that? My network is functioning but I dont understand that first
    bit about etc/hosts ?

    Thanks again for the help !!! It is *much* appriciated :D
