reposync - synchronize yum repositories to a local directory
reposync is used to synchronize a remote yum repository to a local directory, using yum to retrieve the packages.
-h, --help Display a help message, and then quit. -c CONFIG, --config=CONFIG Config file to use (defaults to /etc/yum.conf). -a ARCH, --arch=ARCH Act as if running the specified arch (default: current arch, note: does not override $releasever). --source Also download .src.rpm files. -r REPOID, --repoid=REPOID Specify repo ids to query, can be specified multiple times (default is all enabled). -t, --tempcache Use a temp dir for storing/accessing yum-cache. -p DESTDIR, --download_path=DESTDIR Path to download packages to: defaults to current directory. -g, --gpgcheck Remove packages that fail GPG signature checking after downloading. -u, --urls Just list urls of what would be downloaded, don't download. -n, --newest-only Download only newest packages per-repo. -q, --quiet Output as little information as possible. --allow-path-traversal Allow packages stored outside their repo directory to be synced. These are packages that are referenced in metadata by using absolute paths or up-level ".." symbols, and are normally skipped by reposync for security reasons. CAUTION: Using this option has potential security implications since, by providing malicious repodata, an attacker could make reposync write to arbitrary locations on the file system that are accessible by the user running it.
Sync all packages from the 'updates' repo to the current directory: reposync --repoid=updates Sync only the newest packages from the 'updates' repo to the current directory: reposync -n --repoid=updates Sync packages from the 'updates' and 'extras' repos to the current directory: reposync --repoid=updates --repoid=extras Sync all packages from the 'updates' repo to the repos directory: reposync -p repos --repoid=updates
reposync uses the yum libraries for retrieving information and packages. If no configuration file is specified, the default yum configuration will be used. /etc/yum.conf /etc/yum/repos.d/
