UPDATING your URPMI-SOURCES A few pages ago I told you about adding your urpmi-sources.
From time to time you have to update your urpmi-sources because packages on those mirrors will change and you will no longer be able to use this clever install utility.
Below are other resources with more detailed information about urpmi: Besides a very basic introduction, this page tries to cover what is not already covered in the two above sources of information.
We assume that you know how to use a man page and that you have read the above page.
