View Full Version : How to update F12 without Internet connection?
9th January 2010, 12:42 PM
Hi all! I plan to install F12 (Fedora-12-i386DVD.iso) in a location where there's no Internet connection, thus I'd like to previously download the updates in order to install them once completed the installation. How can i perform this ? can I download the updates that were released after F12 launch date from somewhere ? how should I tell yum or rpm to find them ?
Thanks for any information about this.

If your not on the internet you dont really need to do the updates and then really only need the security updates,
or do you mean more on how to install codecs and packages etc.. once installed.

My main objective is to have the system completely updated, mainly due to bug fixes. I have a F12 live usb completely updated thanks to the persistent storage, maybe I can perform the install from this system then mount the DVD in order to add the additional packages (OpenOffice, etc), anyway I'm not so sure if this may work.

Once you have downloaded the packages, you can do a local install, for example
yum localinstall somepackage.rpm
A little bit more effort, but in the end probably more efficient (dependency resolution, etc.) would be to create your own local repository:
