Updating Mandriva from the CLI

With the Mandriva operating system you have a control panel that will go through the process of updating your system. However the package manager can also have a command line interface which makes it really easy to update. However the CLI is not so explained to do the things you do on the GUI, like updating the system with the latest packages.

After looking around the internet I finally came to a good FAQ with detailed question and answer. With URPMI will be able to configure to the full ammount. There are many options and will make them go through.

  • –update
  • –keep
  • –fuzzy
  • –parallel alias
  • –wget

To view the whole list you can go here however I couldn’t get the auto-update and auto-select.
