I did not imply that you are stupid. I posted that with a smile. Did you
not see it?

To have the DVD *always* as a source to check for packages is a pain in
the neck IMO.

Mandriva does that. The install DVD is a default source. *Every time*
that you try to *install*, or *update*, you have to find and insert the
DVD for it to check it for the disired package(s) *and* their
dependencies as well as the online repos.

Everyone that I know that uses Mandriva *disables* that 'feature' as one
of the very first things that they do.

You have already said that you *know* how to do this. May I suggest that
you do it then?
