Thanks, my problem is getting the cached RPMs to work. Let me try to explain a
In the past, the /var/cache/yum had directories for repos, like 'updates,'
'rawhide,' and 'updates-testing.' Now the structure is pushed down and looks
| `-- 12
| |-- adobe-linux-i386
| |-- fedora
| |-- fedora-debuginfo
| |-- installed
| |-- rawhide
| |-- rawhide-debuginfo
I can't seem to export that in a way that the network installer will use it when
I specify it as an additional repo. Note this was a handy example, I'm actually
using FC13, both 32 and 64 bit.
I don't know if the fault lies in the export or the createrepo, but it would
speed upgrades no end if I could do things this way.
