I have fedora 17. Before update packages I need to backup packages that will be updated. The probles is that my server is not connected to internet and I haven't access to online repos. Update comes to me with set of rpms.
Checking for the sync is pretty much build in with how packages are moved. The last 2 packages move in a larger update, are always 2 held back, so the update will fail, bc of missing version or package. Example last update.
I've got nearly 5GB of updated RPM packages in /var/lib/yum/... Is this useful? I suppose I could back up to a previously working system if something broke. Is this normal? 5GB seems like a lot of packages to keep around. How much space should I plan for? Is it OK to remove those packages to get my disk back?
The Debian project is pleased to announce the third update of its stable distribution Debian 7 (codename wheezy). This update mainly adds corrections for security problems to the stable release, along with a few adjustments for serious problems.
Firefox 9.0 stable was released two days ago. Mozilla Stable PPA has updated the packages to the latest but only for Ubuntu 10.04 & 10.10, and other Ubuntu editions can try Firefox 9 by downloading code from Mozilla.org, or waiting for the repository to update.
Now, Ubuntu-Mozilla-Security/PPA has updated the packages of latest Firefox 9 for Ubuntu 11.10 & 11.04.
As previously discussed, I have updated the Statler images. The new images are available from the download page. Any help with seeding the torrents would be greatly appreciated!The new images do not constitute a new release, at least not for anyone who is content with using the previous 20111125 images.
I have a PC and a laptop. my laptop is always updated, so for updating the PC I don't want to download the packages again for my PC. What I do is copying rpm files from /var/cache/yum/i386/17/fedora/updates/packages to the corresponding directory of the PC.
Is there a better/faster way to do this? can I say yum connect with ssh to laptop and get updated packages from there?
