Collecting/Storing RPMs


Just got my install of Fedora 3 working well and I'm in the process of updating the RPMs. There are loads of them and many are huge.I assume Linux saves them to a folder somewhere. Is it possible to copy these RPMs to CD in case of a re-install? It would save hours work.

The up2date program saves the downloaded RPMs, together with the RPM headers in /var/spool/up2date. You can find the RPMs that were installed with yum in /var/cache/yum.

That's what I like. A nice, straightforward answer. Thanks.

Thanks.

Though you can find the RPMs at these locations, I don't know if up2date and/or yum look at these locations before looking on the internet. You may have to specifically tell either program to first look at these locations.
