I am trying to update my fedora rpm's using "yum update" command but it's taking too much of time and while it's downloading 256MB of data

Is there any another way to update my rpm's which takes less time

Hi,

With the information provided I can only assume that your download speed is the limiting factor. If that is the case: You cannot do anything about that (getting a faster provider would work, but that's probably not an option ).

You can install the packages one at the time when time permits.

The following command shows which updates are ready to be installed: yum list updates
And as you might already know: yum install package to install the package (and possible dependencies).

Hope this helps.

Doesn't my previous reply answer that?

Assuming you don't want to use yum at all: I could point you to RPM, but your life will be much more complicated if you use that:

- You need to figure out which packages need updating,
- You need to download them (and possible dependencies),
- You need to install them using rpm (after first installing the possible dependencies).

All the above is done by yum, either by running yum update or the method I mentioned in my previous post.

Hope this helps.
