Hi,

I've noticed that for Mageia 5 the OBS provides erroneous installation
instructions. For example, view the Mageia 5 installation instructions
for this package
(https://software.opensuse.org/download.html?project=home%3Afusion809&package=vim),
notice how they presently are (running these commands as root):

urpmi.addmedia home:fusion809
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:fusion809/Mageia_5/
urpmi.update -a
urpmi vim

This fails, the correct instructions would instead be (running these
commands also as root):

urpmi.addmedia home:fusion809
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:fusion809/Mageia_5/$(uname
-m)
urpmi.addmedia home:fusion809
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:fusion809/Mageia_5/noarch
urpmi.update -a
urpmi vim

For further details please refer to this openSUSE forums topic I
started on this very subject
(https://forums.opensuse.org/showthread.php/522652-Errors-adding-my-Mageia-5-repository-using-the-OBS-instructions).

Thanks for your time,
Brenton
