yumdownloader? I hope it is what I am thinking.
You'll see, my home computer is connected to the Internet through a
modem and most of the time making updates is prohibited because more
often that not they are very large, so I religiously copy the packages
names that needs an update, I take them to my office and wget them from
a very fast connection one by one into my usb memory and finally back to
my home and copy the packages in the yum cache.
Is there a way to make the downloading part of this automatic? something
like yum generating all the wget commands so I can use them on a very
fast connection easily instead of one by one.
yumdownloader has a "--urls" option that will give you the URLs to
download. This could easily be scripted into a bunch of wget commands.
