Sometimes we may need to save installation packages which are installed by using  yum.

This is useful if we want to reinstall the rpm packages when  internet is not available .

 

# vi /etc/yum.conf

cachedir=/var/cache/yum

keepcache=1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now we have all packages saved in /var/cache/yum directory  and we can install all packages including dependencies with the command rpm -ivh *.rpm

# cd /var/cache/yum

#rpm -ivh *.rpm

 

If any dependencies are missing , we can insert the OS installation disk and type the command ‘ yum localinstall *.rpm’.

#yum localinstall *.rpm
