Description Jan Hutař 2008-01-15 03:45:09 EST
Description of problem:
--downloadonly option (provided by yum-downloadonly plugin) does not work with 
file:// repository. With the same repository setup yumdownloader (from yum-
utils) works.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum -y install --downloadonly --downloaddir=`pwd` test
2. ls test*.rpm

Actual results:
Package is not downloaded (it is downloaded with `yumdownloader test`)

Expected results:
Package is downloaded

Additional info:
# cat /etc/yum.repos.d/repo022.repo 
name=repo022 test repository
# ls /mnt/tests/CoreOS/yum/plugins-generic/repo-0.2-2
comps.xml  repodata  test-0.2-2.i386.rpm  test-skip-broken-0.2-2.i386.rpm

Maybe this is a feature, not a bug, please let me know. I would just expect 
this to work.

Comment 2 James Antill 2008-01-15 08:37:21 EST
 This is a feature, yum --downloadonly just makes sure that the packages are
downloaded from the network ... so you can run with -C. file:// repos. don't
have that problem.
 To put it another way, yum doesn't copy file:// urls into it's cache dir.
because only bad things could happen if it did (like run out of disk space, and
take more time).
