[edit] Questions

Will this support USB flash drives?

USB key's are up to 32GB these days which makes them much viable choice to use for containing packages even whole repo's than optical media. ( http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/DIRECTORY_SIZES.txt )


and how to make a usb volume into a media repo? ie. it should contain a media.repo file having something like

[InstallMedia]
name=Fedora 11
mediaid=1243980279.769793
metadata_expire=-1
gpgcheck=0
cost=500

and a .disc info file which contains something like

1243980279.769793
Fedora 11
i386
ALL

this is beside having repodata [generated from createrepo]

so what do you think ? does it worth the effort ?

note: you could be interested in yum-plugin-tmprepo --Alsadi 18:02, 20 July 2009 (UTC)



a USB key with a full repo could be very valuable for those without access to good Internet. With deltarpm one could even stand a chance of keeping it updated over a poor connection. linuxcd.org could sell these to folks who can't download easily. --Billmcgonigle 19:04, 21 July 2009 (UTC)


Ok, I made it search in all removable medias not just optical medias like cdroms and DVDs

[edit] Bugs and Problems

PK does not respect metadata_expire=-1 in media.repo which gives this error

this bug is solved in this commit
