Mandrake Repositories - The Simple Way


Easy Urpmi

Just select your distro, your local servers for updates, etc, it guides you from start to finiish for adding repositories for mandrake. Even Anna Nicole Smith could use it..... hmmm but then there'd be Liquid Corrector all over the monitor :devil:

amarok, xmms, (g)mplayer, rhythmbox and totem are often mentioned. There are tons more!

What do you mean by links? You should be able to fire up synaptic and browse the Applications/Mutlimedia section and see (and install!) for yourself! (Y)

Man! I just added # mplayer and other multimedia stuff
deb ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat/ unstable main to the repositories and came up with 509 updates? 229MB's!!

Alot of them have familiar names (I'm a 1 month old Ubuntu nOOb), but, holy cow!! How in the world do I know what I need? I have Ubuntu Hoary Hedgehog 5.04 (the free version they sent out free cd's for)? I did update with all the default repositories immediately after figuring out how to do that.

I just did a double look and seen that alot of the places added to the repositiries were unstable ones. I removed those, which only left a few new ones. Reloaded list and had NO updates available. That looks better. I think!! :blush:

there's Nvu [1] and Quanta+ [2], both have FTP integration (Quanta+ also has WebDAV, sftp and ssh/ scp, courtesy of KDEs KIO architecture). Nvu is more like Dreamweaver, while Quanta+ is more targeted at professional users (integrated PHP autocompletion and debugger, stuff like that). Quanta+ is also not exactly WYSIWYG, it has a similar feature called VPL (visual page layout), some sort of preview, updated in realtime as you code, that also allows to jump to specific parts of the code by selecting it from the preview.

My ThinkPad does not have a DVD burner and I'm looking to buy an external one. I have found one but I need to know if there is an app like DVD shrink for linux. Does such a thing exist?
