How to download through YUM?


Can anyone help me with the command yum to only download the package?

Ahh sorry. I misread it. Totally my fault. But couldn't you use?:

Code:
wget http://www.example.com/example.rpm
EDIT: I suppose it would be easier to use jhwilliams's method

Brad - to be honest, what you propose above is what I usually do when I'm on an rpm-based machine. But that involves Googling for an acceptable platform-specific rpm out on the interwebs -- this plugin looks like a good shortcut, I think I'll start using it myself. :-)

Same here I'm newer to yum coming from slackware, where there is no package manager.
