I tried to do a urpmi.update -a and it updates all the repositories I have (I installed based on the infos from easyurpmi, because the tool on RPMDrake to do it didnt work).
Nice to see, a problematic package like dvdstyler that I tried to install before simply doenst appear anymore on RPMDrake. It doesnt solve my problem to install it, but at least it doenst appear as a program that I can install. Then I tried to install mandvd, and he just tell me that he cant install it because of dvd-slideshow. Nice, why that package is in the repository, if a dependency is not? And install such packages that have a lot of dependencies from source is a nightmare.

Thats a kind of think that makes a user tired.

[root@lenovo SPECS]# urpmi --test mandvd
No package named mandvd
[root@lenovo SPECS]# urpmi.removemedia
the entry to remove is missing
(one of Main, Contrib, non-free)

As you can see, I have all official media configured, and there is no mandvd package. Whatever media you are trying to install from is not an official one, and therefore any errors in it are not our fault.

mandvd is in plf, not official Mandriva repository. Make sure you have contrib installed before using plf (see http://easyurpmi.zarb.org). It works fine for me.
