Frustrated with Mandriva Club mirror finder



It seems like I go through this every time I have to search for an SRPM to rebuild… search at rpms.mandrivaclub.com then prompted to login – login… oops wrong password. Login again stranded at main club page….. ok – downloads…. mirror finder. First – there’s no way in the mirror finder to search for SRPMS (you can search for architecture builds). There is a search for cooker, but EVERY time I do it I find mirrors that cannot be found. For my own reference ftp://mandrake.redbox.cz/Mandrivalinux/devel/cooker/SRPMS/main/release/ currently works. (Although given the name change from Mandrake to Mandriva I wonder if/when that will change.) It’s about the 4th or 5th mirror I tried after several “cannot change directory” errors, then looking at the mirror to decide if it really IS there and is just renamed to Mandriva…. They really need to look at updating their mirror list.
