NAME         top

       yumdownloader - download RPM packages from Yum repositories

SYNOPSIS         top

       yumdownloader [options] package1 [package2...]

DESCRIPTION         top

       yumdownloader is a program for downloading RPMs from Yum
       repositories.

GENERAL OPTIONS         top

       -h, --help
              Help; display a help message and then quit.

       --destdir DIR
              Specify a destination directory for the download.  Defaults to
              the current directory.

       --urls Instead of downloading RPMs, list the URLs that would be
              downloaded.

       --resolve
              When downloading RPMs, resolve dependencies and also download
              the required packages.

       --source
              Instead of downloading the binary RPMs, download the source
              RPMs.

       --archlist=ARCH1[,ARCH2...]
              Limit the query to packages of given and compatible
              architectures. Valid values are all architectures known to
              rpm/yum such as 'i386' and 'src' for source RPMS. Note that
              repoquery will now change yum's "arch" to the first value in
              the archlist. So "--archlist=i386,i686" will change yum's
              canonical arch to i386, but allow packages of i386 and i686.

ADDITIONAL OPTIONS         top

       Yumdownloader inherits all other options from yum. See the yum(8) man
       page for more information

EXAMPLES         top

       Download the kernel RPM to /var/tmp:
              yumdownloader --destdir /var/tmp kernel

       List the URL for the kernel and kernel-smp RPMs:
              yumdownloader --urls kernel kernel-smp

FILES         top

       As yumdownloader uses YUM libraries for retrieving all the
       information, it relies on YUM configuration for its default values
       like which repositories to use. Consult YUM documentation for
       details:

       /etc/yum.conf
       /etc/yum/repos.d/
       /var/cache/yum/
