Fedora: Maintaining CDROM mirror of updated .RPMs


I can download the updates directory using wget. Restarting wget results in “Server file no newer than local file”. So far, so good.

However, if I write the rpms to cd and then copy them back to my HDD. Restarting wget causes it to download the same rpms all over again.

My plan is to occasionally use wget to update my local copy of updates and then burn it to a new cd. Hopefully by only downloading the changes.

In the future I'd like to yummify the cd of rpms

I'm on dial-up, and have several Fedora boxes.


ps: I've been using an http url and

wget -N -r -l1 --no-parent -A.rpm --random-wait

Found "creating a local yum repository" in another posting here (By WhatsHisName, 8-19-05) The url he posted is an easy way to do it. I guess I'll have to use a HDD backup prog. (or file roller?) to save the .rpm repository on cdr (w/o modifying the time stamps) in case of HDD crash, etc.

wget -c <whatever> will check if the file you're trying to download already exists and is the same. If so it will not download again.
