Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 173768
I would like a "repoid" option to yumdownloader
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:17 EST
Description of problem:
Sometimes one of the less redundant repos in my configuration is not available.
Right now macromedia.mplug.org seems to be down for example, and that .repo
file doesn't have any backup.
To not have to edit .repo files at such times I use --repoid as an option to
repoquery. (I most often know what repository to look in.) But when I want to
use yumdownloader, I don't have any such option available. Would that be hard
An alternative would be an --disablerepo flag like plain "yum" has.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC3 and FC4 have now been EOL'd.
Please check the ticket against a current Fedora release, and either adjust the
release number, or close it if appropriate.
Your friendly BZ janitor :-)
I see an "enablerepo" option now, which seems to do what I want in the FC6
version. The flag naming is slightly confusing here. For "yum", "enablerepo"
means to enable a this repo IN ADDITION to the ones enabled by default. For
"yumdownloader" it means enable ONLY this repo. "Repoquery" has an option with
the same effect as the one in "yumdownloader", but there it is called "repoid".
Oh, well, the functionality is there it seems. I'll get used to the quirks I guess.
