I used to like F10 for its ordered download in accordance with size. It used to suite me on my slower net connection at home and strong connection at work place.
Today I wrote a small plugin today called yum-download-order with ( an evil hack, for which I have reasons) because order by size has been removed for long. It downloads packages in accordance with size (smallest first) or largest first.
I have put in fedora review request at:
From README file:
Options: for downloadorder can be ‘default’, ‘smallestfirst’,
‘largestfirst’ and by default ‘smallestfirst’ is selected.
Options with yum command
Yum command options will override configure file options.
e.g yum –download-order=largestfirst install or
yum –download-order=smallestfirst install
I was planning to put in a download-by-deps ordering also, but first though about looking for use cases. So, in case you find it useful — i.e download by size or by deps .. please mention the use case here ?
