    Please, understand that even if you don't install the packages, you're most likely going to mess up the system by adding the repositories. I don't know of anyone who needs 750 repositories. And finally, why are you using yum under openSUSE? (are you actually using openSUSE?) The package management tool for openSUSE is zypper, and everyone here will tell you that this is the one you have to use.

    Sir,

    As I am new to opensuse can you please suggest a method to only download the packages from online repositories using zypper. And also suggest a method to add repositories bulkly to zypper.



    Regards,
    Rupesh.

    man zypper
    Code:
           -d, --download-only
                  Only download the packages for later installation.

    i had my TB set all the same, except didn't have the "watch" set, that
    is cool--thanks..

    so, i could have still fairly easily followed up on all 'my' threads,
    but there were hundreds of unread to wade though (without the "watch")
    [not to mention real email/fb/G+/etc etc etc] and i just didn't
    wanna.....so, if anyone has been waiting *several* days for my next
    input, if they don't bump i won't see..

    What happened to YaST, probably more suitable for newcomers? I understand why you contrasted zypper to Yum, but the OP may not.

    i think this is a language problem...what is written might be read to
    mean what you really want is a way to locally host a full mirror of all
    openSUSE repos so that yourself, or others in your
    company/university/state can _later_ download from the mirror without
    using all the band width to pull it in _again_ and _again_

    if that is what you are looking for, that is easy--see
    http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Mirrors to learn about our mirrors

    and, to learn about how to set up your own *local* mirror (say for
    yourself, or your company, or your university) see here:
    http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Mirror_howto

    *but* do NOT use yum with openSUSE and do NOT enable all repos on your
    production workstation...instead, build a mirror on a local http server
    and pull from it..

    let us know how you get on!

    and, if you were to ask on the (for example) Debian or Red Hat forums
    for similar info i would suggest you ask: How do I setup a local Debian
    mirror?

    Please Rupesh, understand that the one person that's going to tell you how to achieve your goal, is the person that's giving you the path to seriously borking your system. No matter what you use, yum, Yast, zypper. The analogy that comes to mind is "Downloading the internet".

    How will you know what version of a package is required? With that many repos, there will be several versions of the same package, ranging from stable to very unstable (incomplete or full of bugs). There will be many conflicting package dependencies resulting from multiple versions of each package, and you will waste many hours trying to sort that out on your own!
