    Exclamation trying to get mandriva 2010 manually


    Well it seems that everytime i try to download a iso, once it gets about 20% my laptop loves to just freeze on me, so now i'm trying to get mandriva 2010 into my harddisk manually. When i got these passphrase
    urpmi.addmedia kde-4.4.0 ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/stable/4.4...driva/2010.0/i

    it says this in root

    adding medium "kde-4.4.0"
    ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/stable/4.4...esis.hdlist.cz

    ...retrieving failed: curl: (9) Server denied you to change to the given directory
    ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/stable/4.4...esis.hdlist.cz

    ...retrieving failed: curl: (9) Server denied you to change to the given directory
    no synthesis file found for medium "kde-4.4.0"
    ...retrieving failed: curl failed: exited with 9

    I only understand that it has failed, but how can i make it not fail. My system is a toshiba A100 with intel drivers, please someone help. i'm getting a bit fusterated. NOT to mention i have my exam tomorrow and i really need this laptop to study from.

    1. Get in root
    su -

    2. Make sure you are up to date with the version you are using right now
    urpmi --auto-update -v

    3. Get rid of the old media
    urpmi.removemedia -av

    4. Add the new media (my example is for the x86_64 architecture)
    urpmi.addmedia --distrib --mirrorlist 'http://api.mandriva.com/mirrors/basic.2010.0.x86_64.list'

    5. Upgrade (the 2>&1 | tee 2010upgrade.log is optional in case something fails)
    urpmi --auto --auto-update --replacefiles 2>&1 | tee upgrade.log

    Good Luck!!
