download pkgs from RHN?


Hi,

Is there any easy method to download securitypatches/bufixes/enhancements from RHN?

yum-downloadonly package will help but we have to collect the list of pkgs from RHN site and then scripting....and then download....

But is there any simpler way we can do this?

I am using RHEL5.3.

Thanks in advance.

well you can manually download them by logging directly into RHN online if that's what you mean. You're very vague about the issues you're facing to know what is not ideal about it. Maybe you'd benefit from the yum-security package which would integrate redhat security announcements into yum?
