Re: update from another machine
Thank for the suggestion. However, the problem is thatyum (on the "fast host") check that the package for nstallation, update or reinstallation.
So I did not find a way to down load on the fast host the package for another
distribution, like a i686 from a host x86_64. Can I force yum to not check. Maybe I should use rpm?
At home I have a slow internet connection, Thus, I would like to prepare an update but only download the packages to another machine and then copy the file on a stick to make the update from the stick. How can I do it? Thank.I update my laptop at work and rsync to other machines when I get home.Here's a variation on that: ... On fasthost, modify /etc/yum.conf to set keepcache=1.... If you've not set keepcache before, then you may still end up downloading ... dependencies (to slowhost) not kept on fasthost from previous runs.fasthost# yum install/update [ --downloadonly ] THE-PACKAGES-I-WANT fasthost# rsync -avP --include='*/' --include='*rpm' --exclude='*' /var/cache/yum/ /media/STICK/yum/ ... go home ... slowhost# (edit /etc/yum.conf to set keepcache=1) slowhost# rsync -avP /media/STICK/yum/ /var/cache/yum/ slowhost# yum update/install This will only copy the RPMs; yum will still download metadata (see yum.conf for "metadata_expire"). ... optionally, rsync RPMs back to STICK, then back to fasthost
