Question Offline installers


I do not have an Internet connection in my Linux box. So I need to know if there are any offline installers where I can download all packages from elsewhere, bring it and install it in on my fedora box. I have heard about service Pack creator tool. Is it like that(an offline installer tool)?

You should just need to download the .rpm files, copy them to your fedora box and run:

Code:
rpm -ivh filename.rpm
(as root)

A local offline yum repository is the solution :

I.e. then you can use yum, like you were online.
And let yum take care of all the dependencies. ( Which 'rpm -Uvh' cannot do.)


A comment to post #2 : The command # rpm -ivh <package>
is mostly used, if you want two versions of the same package (library)
installed at the same time.

The standard install command used by all 'Package Managers' and by yum is
# rpm -Uvh <package>
( Most often it is # rpm -Uvh <package> <package> <package> <package> .. .. )

..
