Question How to backup updated packages?


Hello!
I have fedora 17. Before update packages I need to backup packages that will be updated. The probles is that my server is not connected to internet and I haven't access to online repos. Update comes to me with set of rpms. So, I hear that it's possible to backup updated packages using put tsflags=repackage to /etc/yum.conf or %_repackage_all_erasures 1 to /etc/rpm/macros but these receipts doesn't work! So, is any way to solve my problem?

Check if 'man yum.conf' has the following to say about [main] section options:
Quote:
tsflags
Comma or space separated list of transaction flags to pass to the rpm transaction set. These include 'noscripts', 'notriggers', 'nodocs', 'test', 'justdb' and 'nocontexts'. 'repackage' is also available but that does nothing with newer rpm versions. You can set all/any of them. However, if you don't know what these do in the context of an rpm transaction set you're best leaving it alone. Default is an empty list.
...is your answer.
