    I haven't installed 2008.1 yet, but from reading the release notes, rpmdrake
    defaults to only showing the gui packages.

    Have you used the option to show all packages?

    Yes, and in the flat view mode, no less.

    Never mind. Just found out that the
    /var/lib/urpmi/synthesis.hdlist.non-free.cz
    does not have the dkms-fglrx rpm that can be found in the
    non-free mandrivalinux/official/2008.1/i586/media/main/release
    directory on my system.

    Most likely the problem is my set_mirror script.

    Problem was my script to set mirrors.

    Went to http://easyurpmi.zarb.org/ and got another surprise.
    Getting to be too much automation for my tastes.


    New cfg format snippet shows

    Main {
    key-ids: 70771ff3
    mirrorlist: $MIRRORLIST
    with-dir: media/main/release
    }

    PLF\ Free {
    key-ids: caba22ae
    mirrorlist: http://plf.zarb.org/mirrors/$RELEASE.$ARCH.list
    update
    with-dir: media/../../../../2008.1/free/release/binary/i586
    }

    Kind of bites. I just checked my favorite Main mirror and http was quite
    slow and ftp was much faster.

    Having run the cookers for 2008.1, rpmdrake is supposed to remember the
    last used option you used (unless they changed it before release). So if
    you viewed all packages then the next start it will show all packages, if
    the last was "Installed packages", then that's what will show when you
    start rmpdrake next time.

    Yep!

    Smart-urpmi is far better and gives the date and time for each mirror
    update...
