Updating and installing packages without an internet connection

Hi all,

I am getting a new desktop probably today, and is going to install F10 on it. However my problem is I don't have an internet connection at home. So is there a way to apply updates? I did find some suggestions in the archives. Most said to download all the updates onto some media and use rpm -Fvh *.rpm. Even if I overlook the size of the downloads, this won't work if I were to install new packages. How would dependency resolution work in that case? Is there any way I can find that out beforehand and download all the dependency pacakges as well?

The only machines with an internet connection I have access to, are at the university. However since all of them run Ubuntu, doing an rpm query on the new package is not feasible. Any suggestions?


Open source is the future. It sets us free.
