why you don't create a private fedora mirror ?
Wouldn't he need to download a lot of packages that his machines
won't be using?
Yes, that's why I didn't want to set up mirrors (I would have to mirror
fedora, updates, rpmfusion, i686, x86_64, etc, etc...)
Adding the "proxy" line to yum.conf is obvious, as is enlarging the
cache object sizes, but are subtler changes needed? For instance,
does the use of mirror lists cripple the caching, since each client
might request from a different mirror?
Yes. Set a baseurl of the one true mirror to use. mirrors.kernel.org
is a good one many places.
OK, thanks, that's what I thought.
Maybe in the future yum could have a feature to auto-magically query
computers on the local subnet for the presence of an already-downloaded
package, and then just scp it locally...
