Hi everybody , After spending more than three weeks downloading, I finally managed to mirror the entire x86 Mandriva 2007 repository to my harddisk. Now, I want to burn them on DVDs so that I can free my harddisk (the entire download is over 14 GB!!!) and share with everybody. The problem is that the "Main" and "Contrib" sections are respectively 5 GB and 7.4 GB in size. So, its obvious that I can't simply burn them on DVD without splitting them. Suppose, I split the "Contrib" section into 2 DVDs-one DVD will contain 4.3 GB of rpms along with the hdlist.cz file and the 2nd DVD will contain the rest of the rpms. If I add these 2 disks to Software Media Manager, I am sure that Mandriva will get confused when I tell it to install a package that has dependencies on these disks. So, please suggest me a method. I am aware that there is a utility in Mandriva that will generate the 'synthsesis.hdlist.cz' file. Is that the only option? If yes, please tell me how to do it? Also, please suggest a way to check for any changes in the repo (like updates, new packages being added etc) at a later time, while the existing mirror is spread over 5 DVDs.
