Thread: SneeikerNetting OS online updates

    Default SneeikerNetting OS online updates

    I have an OS 11.4 system running on a network which prevents me from using the publicly available update repositories. Is there a way to mirror the update repositories onto a flash drive and updating from there?

    Is this as simple as using wget to mirror certain directories on the public repository?

    It is possible, yes, but the size can be very large.

    I tried various invocations of wget, but kept getting content from other mirrors as well as the target repository. This really makes keeping up with patches difficult (impossible). If it's less than ~6Gig, I can probably make it work. Do you know how to mirror the x86_32 update repository without dragging unnecessary content along with it? If not, I will continue with trial and error.

    Ah, you can not use the redirector, you have to target a single mirror, and
    select the appropriate directories. What do you want to get, the updates only?

    Search around here, I think somebody documented the procedure this year.

    This remains a problem for me. I found some instructions on how to mirror the repository using rsync. Unfortunately, I can't use rsync because my netstasi block it. I wish there were a tarball, or similar available for http download in one file.

    Rsync against an http server just uses http. IIRC in my not fully awake state.

    Not that I know.
