    Using local HDD as repository for updates


    Is there a way I can use software updater to notify me of which packages are in need of update, and use a local hard disk as the source of the files? I can obtain files via network at work instead of trying to update via modem on slow dialup.

    Yes there is. You can make your own repository on local drive. Not only for updates package but also extras and core packages.
    Open file on /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates.repo(your file maybe different from mine.. but there is a file that sound like update repo).
    After that, you can edit option baseurl. Change with the path of your update packages on your local drive(you must have update packages first). comment out the mirror options. Save it and clean the cache of yum using
    Code:
    # yum clean all
    and type this command
    Code:
    # yum check-update
