    Update issues


    For some reason the update feature cant connect the mirrors and saying that maybe my CPU architecture is not supported (intel P-4). When trying manually add it at the media manager it cant find mirrors as well.

    I have the same problem, having only recently got a home internet connection. My firewall disallows ftp as - I believe - this is insecure. Maybe it has something to do with that? Most of the Mandriva mirrors seem to rely on ftp, but I suspect there's more to it than this.

    Okay, spill the beans. How did you get it working? You don't want to say do you?

    ftp://ftp.belnet.be/packages/mandrak...586/media/main

    Okay thanks ... I have a few issues with updating at the moment. I'll try to sort them out this weekend and post the results.
