Subject: can I use yum to download to a holding place and then update othermachines with the dl files



Hi,
I would like to know if I can configure yum to
download updated to holding area and update other PCs
with the downloaded files?
I have 3 PCs and they all have the save software.
Since 2 of them are at home, without highspeed
connection, that would save me time.

So, this is what I want to do:
- use yum to download to a holding directory
- use yum to update PCs from holding directory

Is this possible?  If yes, how do I configure Yum to
do it?

Thanks,
Charles Li

You can, but I wouldn't. You would need to make sure that the machines at home have *exactly* the same packages installed that the one on the high speed network does.


I wrote an article for Intel about keeping multiple machines up to date back in the Red Hat Linux 9 days. There are some tips in there that you could easily use:
