Downloading i386 Fedora 9 Alpha Development Packages in one go?


Hi all,

I want to download i386 Fedora 9 Alpha Development Packages. Here is the link:
http://ftp.jaist.ac.jp/pub/Linux/Fed...6/os/Packages/

But this link requires me to download the packages one by one and it is very tedious job. I even downloaded Alpha 9 DVD but these packages are not present in it.

Is there an alternative way through which I can download these packages in one go?

I think it can be done through "wget" but I am not being able to figure it out. Could someone please guide?

Hey Folks,

I have figured it out, This is what I did:
# wget -c ftp://sunsite.mff.cuni.cz/MIRRORS/fe...Packages/*.rpm

Download is still in progress but it looks promising. I changed the mirror because Japan mirror was downloading it in tiresome fashion. Also the above command doesn't work for http mirror because HTTP retrieval does not support globbing.
