Go to "Control Center". Click "Software / Media Manager /Add. Here you
can add your local folder with Rpms in it for install. After you've
successfully added this folder, URPMI adds the rpms to it's database.

If you have succesfully run Ardour now , meaning Ardor DID install
properly from URPMI at one point, then you can get the latest MDK rpms
from pbone. You would need beta 18.2 pixmaps, beta 18.2 libardour and
beta 18.2 ardour rpms. Install them individually in that order. That at
least works on my system. But chances are, because the latest rpms are
built for MDK 10.0, you are going to have problems with them on a 9.2
