Description Nathan G. Grennan 2002-03-25 22:40:57 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020314

Description of problem:
I would like a feature added to up2date where it will download ALL the
errata(including ones already isntalled, all sub-archs like i386, i486, i586,
i686, athlon, noarch) to a directory. It would basically save me from having to
go to  ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/updates/7.2/en/os/ and recrusively
downloading it all. I could have done this using the priority ftp access that
you used to provide as a pay for service, which up2date replaced. You can
download any package through the rhn.redhat.com website, but I want convient and
automated way of doing this. Also you can running mozilla on every machine and
navigating through rhn.redhat.com with lynx/links isn't my idea of fun.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Read up2date --help
2. No such feature
