    Question Easy way to update All?


    I have Mandriva 2007 PowerPack+. I'd like to download and install ALL available updates. The update manager program is a decent enough tool, but it has several problems:

    * It doesn't have a "Select All" option
    * It constantly stops me to ask if it's ok to install the required packages
    * It shows me packages I can't actually select
    * It has so many friggin folders within folders, it could take me an hour or more to select everything, and then half the time it locks up or fails

    I'd really like to just download and install ALL the available updates for my PC with a minimum of fuss and effort. Is there a way (UI or command line) to do this?

    I believe you can do that with urpmi :
    Code:
    urpmi.update -a
