suse offline update


Hi all, please, is there any way one could update suse on an offline computer? I thought I could just download the files from something like this
.../linux/suse/i386/update/10.0/
put them into a directory and direct YOU to it. But, how do I know which ones to download? Is there any way to find out? There is bunch of rpms and patches.

Thanks a lot for your answers.

That's not really an easy task. It is perfectly doable, you will need to get a list of what you have, and what is available, and compare the two. Then you can download required updates, but I don't know how eaisily you can find out about potential dependency problems.
I think really that I would wait a week or two for 10.1 to be released and do a new install.

done

Hi all, I thing I know how to do this.
in the .../linux/suse/i386/update/10.0/ directory, there are several other directories, one of them is called "patches". I downloaded this directory and found out that it is some kind of information about the available updates, when I directed YOU to it it gave me the list of updates but could not download them. However, it was then possible to get the list of actual rpms that I needed for the update so I downloaded them, put them in the .../rpm/i586/ directory, just like it was on the server and it worked!

Unfortunately that does not work for 10.1. As far as I see, you need to 'register' to get a mirror that holds the patches. I searched on my suse boxes for something similar as the .../patches directory in vain. There must be some config files that I did not find yet to make rug pch work from a local directory. (see also this thread: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d.php?t=468820)
