Petoš is maintaing himself a repository with some useful software for Mandriva 2009.0. A presence of the current version of Munipack including dependencies (mostly cfitsio) is good news for us. The repository is easy available. Use the command
urpmi.addmedia "Petos" http://physics.muni.cz/~petos/mandriva/2009.0/i586 with media_info/hdlist.cz
to add it to your sources. The repository is for 32-bit branch (i586) . Packages doesn't contains any description and a digital sign. Ones are required to be used together as whole repository (not as independent entities).
Note. The distribution of binary packages is generally a good idea. But the horrible fragmentation of unix world make me impossible to maintain (at least) some great Linux distribution (Debian, RedHat/Fedora, Mandriva, SuSE, Gentoo,..), *BSD (Free*, Net*, Open*) or Solaris. In despite of the worry, I speculate about this way.
