    [SOLVED] VLC won't install


    I know that there is a vlc post on this forum, but this is a different issue.
    I tried using the Software Management to install the vlc and got this:
    Code:
    Installation failed, some files are missing:

    You may want to update your urpmi database
    
    Try to go on anyway? (y/N)
    When I try to go anyway it doesn't work (oddly enough).
    So, what do I do?
    How do I update the urpmi database (if that is what I need to do)?
    Cogito ergo surf - I think therefore I network.

    I've never used Mandriva, but I *think* the following might do the trick,
    Code:
    urpmi.update -a
    As I said, I've never used Mandriva, so make sure you investigate this command before using it. You have been warned!
