    updates problem (mandrake 10 official)

    today, i have tried to update my mandrake several times. however, it always gives me the following error message :

    the following packages have bad signatures :

    libxfree86-4.3-32.3.100mdk.i586.rpm: missing signature (couldn't open file)

    do you want to continue installation?
    then, i click on "yes" in order to continue installation but later i get an error message telling me that there are files that can't be installed.

    what should i do now?

    Go to and switch your update source by selecting a different one. You may have to delete the old update medium first.

    if u have some specific files that u need to update , just download all of them in a specific folder ,
    then go the command prompt as root and type:

    #urpmi.removemedia -a (this will remove all ur previous medias)

    #urpmi.addmedia --update "some_name" file:///some/directory/path

    ( the "file:///some/directory/path" is the adress of the foder where u downloaded the rpm files)

    then type :

    urpmi --auto-select --no-verify-rpm --auto (this will install the files without verifyng them)

    edit : once again, the installation didn't go well. i hate when it happens. however, i think i know how to fix it but anyway thank you both! :P
