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?
