Tonight i gave it another try, adding PLF-repositories through EasyUrpmi.
Whereas i could not realise this since the earlier Mandriva updates, it seems
all is back in order.
This is no guarantee for probable other issues connected to the earlier
mentioned update.
But i think main problems are solved right now.
Up to the 22nd of December, the release of Mandriva 2010.2!!!!!!

Sorry mister Scherer, but i feel the need to make this announced right here.
