Thread: request for procedure to download all packages

  1. #1

    Default request for procedure to download all packages

    Sir,

    Is there any procedure to download all packages from online repositories at a time. I have lot of disk space and fast internet. At the same time install these packages with minimum intervention from me.



    Regards,
    Rupesh.

    In YaST > Software > Software management, when you have a list at righyt, when you right click in the list, there is "All in this list ..." and when you go there, there is "Install", which will mark for install all in that list.

    When you then first use e.g. a View by repositories and select a repository, you would have all packages of that repo in the list at right and thus mark then all for installation.
    When you use View by RPM Groups and then scroll dpwn to zzz All, you would have all packages of all active repos in the list.

    I do not know the equivalent commands using zypper, but I reckon that it is not my task to read the man page of zypper for you.

    BUT, I strongly advise against doing what you want. It will probably give you a lot lot of problems (dependancy and others). It is also against the security adagium that you shoiuld not install what you do not need (what is not there can not be used malicious). When you want to have the contents of some (there are to many repos to have them all) repos at hand, you better mirror them (and keep them up-to-date). You can then install localy every time you need one. (But when you have a fast connection, I do not see the advantages of this at all).

    Please clarify: do you want to install everything, or do you want to
    have a local copy of all packages in all repos? (ie, a mirror).

    I rather liked the first reply on the Debian User Forum.
