What is a repository

A repository is an archive of software stored in a server. It hosts various programs and allows to easy install and update software. There are many repositories:

  • official repositories, handled directly by Mandriva Soft
  • private repositories, handled by small groups or private clubs, as MIB

Advantages of repositories

  • easy installation of packages, because there are lists that allow to know which packages are availables to install and which of them can be updated. this process is extremely easy thanks to draktools, that resolve all the dependencies and allow to keep the system up-to-date without time loss.
  • The repositories are safe because you know the place you're downloading your software from.
  • Lists can be of two types:

- hdlist.cz (more complete version but heavy)
- synthesis.hdlist.cz (less informations but lighter version)

We remind you that MIB repositories aren't officially supported by Mandriva SA. MIB repositories are handled by a group of Mandriva users. Even if you shouldn't expect problems, if you experience a problem, report it to us or uninstall our program and reinstall the official one. Anyway, our packages never caused serious problems.
