View Full Version : Where can up to date source files be downloaded ?
23rd February 2009, 02:39 AM
When I go to the mirrors where I downloaded Fedora I find the sources. But the date on them is the same as the release date. Where can I find sources that are for the packages currently available through YUM ?

in your fedora.repo( and all the others ) there is this
name=Fedora $releasever - Source
to use it
yum --enablerepo=fedora-source install file-name
or for the updates
yum --enablerepo=updates-source install file-name
or go to the programs web site and get it there . it may be a tar.bz2 download or you can grab them from svn or cvs
for example for the CURRENT development code for celestia use svn
svn co https://celestia.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/celestia/trunk celestia

Just use yumdownloader
yumdownloader --source FOO_PACKAGE
the --resolve flag will also download dependencies.

Thank you both very much :)
