I tried to install Feh in Fedora 9 and got an error. Apparently the installation program is trying to connect to the internet, but I would like to know if I can download the application and install it offline.

The installation program says it couldn't find the repomd.xml file, and is unable to find the website with the feh mirrors.

Any idea will be greatly appreciated.

Open a terminal and type

wget http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/releases/9/Everything/i386/os/Packages/feh-1.3.4-8.fc9.i386.rpm
Probably just as easy to copy / paste. Then use the command

rpm -ivh feh-1.3.4-8.fc9.i386.rpm
Once installed simply type, for example

feh /home/hlandres/Pictures
