I want to download all the .rpm files for the below packages with all its dependencies. The problem is yum cannot find any of them nor its dependencies. I want all these .rpm files for offline installation in another secluded redhat server.

  • protobuf-devel
  • leveldb-devel
  • hdf5-devel
  • gflags-devel
  • glog-devel
  • lmdb-devel

I am using yumdownloader and I got the below error for the above packages

No package package-name available.                     
Error: Nothing to do 

I used the command below

yumdownloader --resolve snappy-devel

for other packages like

  • snappy-devel
  • opencv-devel
  • boost-devel
  • atlas-devel

for which it worked perfectly and downloaded all the packages and the required dependencies *.rpm

Please tell me how to do the same for the other packages mentioned in the beginning.

The problem seems to be that yumdownloader cannot find any package with that name.

Either those packages have different names (try searching yourself using yum search protobuf for example); either you need to add new repositories that do contain those packages.

  • Hi, those packages are available in rpmfind.net but I dont know. what is the repositories url for that website is. And I dont know how to add the same in a red hat linux?
