Leia em Português

The program basically consists of two parts, the script itself and a configuration file, the script will read the configuration file to obtain the necessary information and uses rsync to download the files.

The config file can be locate in /etc/sysconfig/yum-repo-sync, the file is very easy.

In the default installation executable is located in /usr/sbin/yum-repo-sync.

The config file is pre-configured with several repositories, but disabled per default, to enable edit the config file and change the line ENABLE_D from false to true.

If you need only one repository you can add one line ENABLE_n=”true”, the n is the sequential number of the repository.

It is not necessary to create the directory that you specify in UPDATE_DIR_n because the script itself will create the directory if it does not exist.
