    Default How do i copy repos to a local disk?


    I figure it is better to ask something silly rather than do something
    silly.

    How do i copy the OpenSuse 11.1 repos to a local disk to get faster
    access?

    If i do copy them will i need to copy the oss and non-oss repos again? (I
    know i will for update and maybe for others)

    Is there a current repo for somewhat older ATI video cards like X1300?

    Konqueror, Webbrowser, wget, Filezilla... there are many options.

    No, oss and non-oss are static repositories which do not change their content.

    Hi
    I use the iso image of the DVD for local repositories. Then you could
    use rsync to pull in the update repository.

    OK. I have been wanting to learn more about wget. Lets say my target is
    /media/vol1; so i should use something like:
    'wget -4 -o wgetlog<date> ftp://ftp.opensuse.org/distribution/11.1/oss
    /media/vol1/oss' ?

    Hi
    Wget won't cut it, use rsync as you can then configure up exactly what
    you wnat eg on i586, noarch src etc. You then create a local repository
    as a plain rpm local repository. Use the DVD iso image as another. For
    libdvdcss, just download the src rpm as that's all you ever need and at
    the next release just rebuild it, I've used 2.10 for ages now..same
    rpm

    Again for the rest, you can use rsync for specific rpm's, groups etc,
    it's all in the configuration of an rsync script. Maybe a new post over
    in the program/script forum asking for some basics to start with?

    Hmmm. I guess that is where will go then.
