urpmi made easy - Step by step

Ok. to make easier for newbie, a step by step guide is preferable or a series of commands will make their life wonderful :). Here the shortcut for my previous post. You have to be root to run these commands.

urpmi.removemedia -a
urpmi.addmedia --update updates with media_info/
urpmi.addmedia main with media_info/
urpmi.addmedia contrib with media_info/

Please notice any error produced. The server may experience busy traffic or it may be down. You should run the particular command once again. This time you have to choose another server. After all commands run successfully, you can install and update packages through internet by issuing :

urpmi name_of_package

That's all there is to it.
