    Question Making an offline Packman repo

    I'd like to make a local repo of Packman openSUSE 11.2 x86_64 repo. Should I download all of the following folders?
    And what will be an approximate size of this download?
    Code:
    [DIR]	i586/	19-Feb-2010 12:25 	 -
    [DIR]	noarch/	  18-Feb-2010 22:18 	-
    [DIR]	nosrc/	  29-Oct-2009 19:44 	-
    [DIR]	repodata/ 19-Feb-2010 12:32 	-
    [DIR]	src/	  19-Feb-2010 12:25 	-
    [DIR]	suse/     29-Oct-2009 19:53 	-
    [DIR]	x86_64/	  19-Feb-2010 12:25 	-

    Hi
    Just the rpms you want and then create a repository and check the box
    'plain rpm' I would get the noarch and x86_64. Then use rsync to kepp
    up to date.

    Hi.
    Thanks for quick reply.
    So, I should download rpms from the i586/ folder right?
    And when I will "get the noarch and x86_64", these packages will be stored locally, also, right?

    Hi
    If you want x86_64 it would be;
    ftp://ftp.links2linux.de/pub/packman/suse/11.2/x86_64/
    and
    ftp://ftp.links2linux.de/pub/packman/suse/11.2/noarch/

    I want to do this. How big is the initial download?

    I've found two russian websites offering the Packman Repo on DVD for 30 euros, but i'm too scared to buy it lol

    Anyone found a ISO? Or have a local Repo that they could ISO for me so i can download one single file in a scheduled download overnight?

    Lafox.Net - Центр распространения свободного П.О. - Информация о "OpenSUSE 11.1 [x86_64] дополнения от PackMan DVD-DL"
    = packman repo on DVD:

    and

    OSDisc.com - Buy openSUSE 11.2 Software Repository - 5 DVD Set (PC) US: $24 -
    "The Complete openSUSE Software Repository. Includes all of the official repositories -- oss, non-oss, and contrib -- and the packman repository, the most popular third-part repository for openSUSE. In total, the 5 DVDs include over 19GB of software.

    This DVD set allows you to install thousands of applications directly from the DVDs using Add/Remove Applications.

    This is perfect for those with slower internet connections, or no connection at all.

    Complete step-by-step setup instructions included on DVD #1.

    Note: This DVD set will not install openSUSE on your computer. An install CD or DVD is required if openSUSE is not already installed. "

    Am I the only one seeing one or two massive flaws in this "plan"?

    I know of a few:

    Out dated local REPO (not major - i want to take the discs on the road - several customer scenarios where they a) have no internet connectivity or b) way outdated (factory versions) and not enough time to do online update and c) my home PC - have internet at work only)
    the advantages here outweigh the disadvantage of having say - a month old copy? I could download a new 6gb ISO at the end of each month say


    The second is - I can probably try the Rsync thing, but they way our bandwidth is shaped, means its nearly impossible to rsync over it, HTTP downloads on huge files actually downloads pretty fast using a download manager
