I do not know how urpmi uses the list file. It is clearly not essential since
not all sources have one.
When it is eventually fixed do a urpmi.update -a  to bring your database in
line with the mirror.
You should also be updating the database for your updates source frequently.

I automate my updates in a cron job with this :-

urpmi.update updates && urpmi --update --auto --auto-select


Thanks. I appreciate the input.

One last question regarding sources for urpmi.
I've been playing around with the commands to add media and remove media, just to get a feel for things.
The only question I have now, is that when I do a search for samba, it only lists samba3. From what im gathering, it is searching the 'contrib' tree and not the 'main' tree.

Is there a way to get urpmi to search both trees? Then, if I specifically want to look for samba3, I could type: urpmq -i samb3 or something similar?

I appreciate it.
