Um, I have six repositories activated. Core Release, Core Updates, 
Non-free Release, Non-free Updates, Tainted Release, Tainted Updates. 
Non-free is where my nVidia video card driver came from. I believe it 
has other proprietary packages that aren't strictly FOS, but don't carry 
the potential legal baggage of the stuff in the Tainted repositories.

I learned to avoid Backports with Mandriva, but I've read where the 
developers want to make those more reliable with Mageia. We'll see how 
that works out.
