I've got a question about yum. When I upgrade my system using dnf, it downloads packages from the Web. Can I set dnf configuration so that I could save rpm files for later use, with the same system but without Web connection?


I believe the option that you are looking for is keepcache=1 which you would need to set in /etc/dnf/dnf.conf. After doing that you should see the files in /var/cache/dnf/.

If you would like to remove the downloaded rpm's at a later time you can use dnf clean packages.

  • thank you @LucasMcCoy . I have one more Q please, I think that this is going to work the next time I upgrade/download a RPM, am I right? (if yes , can you show me how to save the current RPMs.)

  • @010010001 Yes this will work for rpm's that you install going forward. Packages that you have already installed were deleted after they were installed. You can download the rpm from a website or you could reinstall the package via dnf to get a copy of the rpm.
