    How to download a local mirror of public yum, public-yum-downloader.sh

      Hello there

      I did write an script to create a local mirror of public-yum.oracle.com, it now includes the errata and security bug fixes information._

      First of all, thanks for giving a try to the script.

      The script can be located at:


      Direct RAW access:

      Download as

      # wget https://raw.github.com/kikitux/public-yum-downloader/master/public-yum-downloader.sh

      The hierarchy is 100% the same as what is on public-yum

      The script can take several argumentas, like -P for the OS directory, and --url for where the same path will be public, so you can put the mirror in a different path

      example, I have my own repo in /u02/stage/ and is shared like http://mirandaa00/stage

      on my apache I have

      Alias /stage "/u02/stage/"

      <Directory "/u02/stage/">
      Options Indexes MultiViews FollowSymLinks
      AllowOverride None
      Order allow,deny
      Allow from all

      In that way, I have everything I want in my own path.

      When you use the url option, the script will create a local-yum-ol6.repo file with the url you gave, with GPG enabled, so you can be sure nothing wrong will happen in the middle

      I use this script it this way

      as root, i have /root/bin/dl.sh with this content

      ~/bin/public-yum-downloader.sh -P /u02/stage/ -p http://proxy:3128 -R 6.latest --url http://mirandaa00/stage -l /u02/stage/repo/OracleLinux/OL6/
      ~/bin/public-yum-downloader.sh -P /u02/stage/ -p http://proxy:3128 -R 5.latest --url http://mirandaa00/stage -l /u02/stage/repo/OracleLinux/OL5/
      ~/bin/public-yum-downloader.sh -P /u02/stage/ -p http://proxy:3128 -R 4.latest --url http://mirandaa00/stage -l /u02/stage/repo/EnterpriseLinux/EL4/
      ~/bin/public-yum-downloader.sh -P /u02/stage/ -p http://proxy:3128 -R 6.4 --url http://mirandaa00/stage -l /u02/stage/repo/OracleLinux/OL6/
      ~/bin/public-yum-downloader.sh -P /u02/stage/ -p http://proxy:3128 -R 5.9 --url http://mirandaa00/stage -l /u02/stage/repo/OracleLinux/OL5/
      ~/bin/public-yum-downloader.sh -P /u02/stage/ -p http://proxy:3128 -R 4.9 --url http://mirandaa00/stage -l /u02/stage/repo/EnterpriseLinux/EL4/
      ~/bin/public-yum-downloader.sh -P /u02/stage/ -p http://proxy:3128 -R 4.8 --url http://mirandaa00/stage -l /u02/stage/repo/EnterpriseLinux/EL4/
      ~/bin/public-yum-downloader.sh -P /u02/stage/ -p http://proxy:3128 -R 6.UEK --url http://mirandaa00/stage
      ~/bin/public-yum-downloader.sh -P /u02/stage/ -p http://proxy:3128 -R 5.UEK --url http://mirandaa00/stage
      ~/bin/public-yum-downloader.sh -P /u02/stage/ -p http://proxy:3128 -r ol6_addons --url http://mirandaa00/stage
      ~/bin/public-yum-downloader.sh -P /u02/stage/ -p http://proxy:3128 -r el5_addons --url http://mirandaa00/stage
      ~/bin/public-yum-downloader.sh -P /u02/stage/ -p http://proxy:3128 -r el5_oracle_addons --url http://mirandaa00/stage
      ~/bin/public-yum-downloader.sh -P /u02/stage/ -p http://proxy:3128 -r ol6_playground_latest

      the -l will look on that path to find the rpm, useful for example if you have a dvd and you want to use as initial cache

      I do run my commands in that way as when 5.9 came out, I had a lot of those rpms in 5.8 or 5 latest, rite?
      Worst thing that could happen, is the rpm is not there, and will have to download, but if it's there will copy it

      for UEK and addons those are unique rpm, so I don't use -l

      for the playground, that are the new kernel based on 3.x directly, i don't use --url, as I don't wat the script to enable that repo, but I do want to download what that channel have

      so, for known versions 6.0 to 6.4 you can use -R 6.n or even -R 6.UEK

      for other repos you can pass the name as -r repo

      Regarding the OVM3, the OVM3 is not on the repo, so I don't use my script for that, however, you can use the tools your self

      mkdir -p /u02/stage/repo/OracleVM/OVM3/latest/x86_64/repodata/.cache

      and create a repo file

      cat /u02/stage/public-yum-ovm3.repo

      name=Oracle Linux $releasever Latest (x86_64)

      Then, you can download what is there as:

      http_proxy=http://proxy:3128 yumdownloader -c /u02/stage/public-yum-ovm3.repo --destdir=/u02/stage/repo/OracleVM/OVM3/latest/x86_64/ '*'
      createrepo -v -c /u02/stage/repo/OracleVM/OVM3/latest/x86_64/repodata/.cache /u02/stage/repo/OracleVM/OVM3/latest/x86_64

      Please, take note the yumdownloader use --destdir=/path  then SPACE, then what you want to download, as we want a mirror, space '*'
