What is repository

Repositories are centralized software archives, owned by user-group or society:

* official repository, directly cared by Mandriva Soft
* unofficial repository, cared by small user-group or club, as MIB

Benefits in comparison to distribute archives

Mandriva Linux use centralized archives, in contrast to other linux distribution that use distribute archives. Centralized archives are more useful than distribute archives because of centralized archives contains all the softwares and all its dependencies, and you can download all together.

Moreover benefits are:

* Easy installation of all packages, because system can use lists to know recent packages and can solve dependencies.
* Traceability of package’s provider, improving security.

Lists can be of two types:

* hdlist.cz (big and complete)
* synthesis.hdlist.cz (light)

MIB provides in his repos newer packages than Mandriva, with internal optimizations, or provides untraceable packages.

To add our repos you must take the following commands in a root console (for each command you must have a positive confirmation before to take the next):


I M P O R T A N T :

 

arch. /i686 e’ la scelta 32-bit consigliata dal MIB come predefinita, se avete installato la Distro Mandriva Linux 32-bit, chiamata anche i586.

arch. /i586 e’ la scelta 32-bit solamente di ripiego se avete un PC troppo vecchio (anteriore al Pentium 3-MMX) o dotato di processore bacato, che non riesce a funzionare con le estensioni multimediali, e trarne profitto.

arch. /x86_64 e’ la scelta giusta per l’architettura 64-bit, ma solo se avete installato la Distro Mandriva Linux 64-bit, x86_64.

 



In order to config all Mandriva repos mdv, plf, MIB and Edumandriva now we have a new easyurpmi tool: Mandriva.ru.

Procedura Completa per la configurazione di tutti i repository necessari:

* Per prima cosa, assicuratevi di avere ben configurato i repo ufficiali di Mandriva (Add Official medias) e i PLF (Add PLF medias) ai quali i repo MIB si appoggiano, integrando e completando il supporto, quindi, se non l’avete gia’ fatto precedentemente potete adesso anche usare quest’ottimo Link, :
http://easyurpmi.zarb.org
* Per aggiungere i Nostri repo MIB dovrete digitare o copiare da una console di root i seguenti blocchi di comandi (aspettate l’esito positivo prima di dare il successivo.)
