Where can I find the rpm that yum already downloaded?


I want to reinstall fedora several times, so I don't want to download the updates every time when I do yum update. (My internet connection is very slow). How can I store the update files yum downloads, so that I can update the system next time without downloading the same packages again?

Thank you

You can enable yum caching
