Where to Download Fedora 11 Packages?


Where can I download packages include dependent packages for Fedora 11. I want to keep the Installation Packages for later installation. I don't want to use yum. If it can be download as a zip which include all dependent packages, It would be what I'm looking for.

Don't know if it's possible to download it the way you want(it's possible with ubuntu).
But you can copy the download RPMs downloaded by yum from /var/cache/yum directory to backup the installation files to install them on other computers.

'yum' is downloading to :
/var/cache/yum/<reponame>/packages/

To keep packages ( in the future ) :

1) su
2) gedit /etc/yum.conf
... and edit line 3 from
keepcache=0
to
keepcache=1
.......
.......

'yum' is taking care of dependencies, and using
this kind of install is the Linux way.
You can also use the Package Manager for the same functionality :
( Menu ) System > Administration > "Add / Remove Packages"
Not using these tools, is asking for troubles.
......

All the 14,000 packages are here
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...6/os/Packages/
They are continuously being updated, the current 4,600 updates :
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...dates/11/i386/

this you will NEVER find
there are no "service packs" in linux
you can brows a repo mirror

You can install RPMs from here, but it doesn't show any info about dependencies as http://packages.ubuntu.com/ shows for ubuntu.
