View Full Version : Update database

28th April 2006, 10:15 PM
Is there a way to download the package database of Fedora Core 5 in order to find the updates needed by the system?

I've got a machine without Internet connection, I want to check for updates with the command yum check-update, the command is not successfull so I looked into the repo files and I realize that it looks into the url:


I got into the page, opened the folder repodata and downloaded the files it contained, then I made my own .repo file pointing to the files I downloaded.

I ran the check-update again and it didn't do anything

I need to solve this without downloading all rpms available, it would take a long time and not oll the packages areneeded.

That's the source code, only get that if you want to recompile things.

Basically what you need to do is pick which of [url=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/5/i386/]these updates[/code] you need. (Assuming 32 bit processor.)

Did you disable the usual updates repository? Try posting the complete yum output and what you have for repo config.

Copying them packages all over may be simpler.
