How to get an RPM database?
I was interested in getting the whole RPM DB for my distro (only it's version and arch, and no experimentals), but even that is still gigs upon gigs. I created a program to download the whole thing automatically, but even when I use a public computer at the library it would take days to download! (I have like a 1 bit per second dial-up internet connection, so I can't do it overnight at home) So, does anyone know how I could obtain a hard-copy of this? It's become obvious, that I'm really not going to be able to get it by downloading. I couldn't find any place that you could order some disks from (like you can with Ubuntu).
