    Question Download .ymp to folder

    I have a .ymp that downloads and installs packages which I want to keep offline, for installing them on my laptop when I can't connect to the internet and keeping them safe locally.

    Is there any way to download a .ymp's contents to a folder rather then install them? Or at least get the full URL of each package to download via web browser? Thanks.

    i vote for that if this will become a suse feature

    but you should do this manually
    ymp is xml file you can look at list of files in repo and download this
    manually
    you can add local repo in yast and choose install by repo and install all
    your stuff
    something like this

    Thanks for the quick reply The repos are easy to see but it's very hard to know which files you must download or what subfolder of the repo they're in, and what additional files I should keep. I'll try to take what I can if it's the only way at this time.

    I will ask this at another manner

    is it possible to list repository? just like ftp or ssh
    because not all repository is available to show through http
    and in addition it will be more comfortable to search cutom rpms in

    will be cool to have something in mc just like ftp and ssh

    Debian/ Ubuntu already have this functionality, it is called 'APTonCD' :
    APTonCD

    Hope this feature is added to a future openSUSE release (maybe oS 11.2 ?). Any openSUSE devs who might be reading this, request them to look into this feature. Esp useful for those without a fast Internet connection or for smal server-client set-ups.

    In the meantime, the following might be of help:
