I would like to mirror the CentOS.org repository for an offline network. I
don’t need the ISO images, don’t need any i386 stuff, and I think I
probably don’t need any of the source code rpms either. Most of the clients are CentOS 6.x, so I don’t want to download the CentOS 7.x tree yet either
(that will come soon, but separately from this one).
I tried using this command, but it still downloaded all of the i386
sub-folders anyway, and I got about 15 gigs or so of stuff I didn’t want.
wget -m -np –exclude-directories=i386 http://mirror.CentOS.org/CentOS-6/6/
I’m guessing there’s a formatting mistake of some kind in this command. Do you need to specify the excluded sub-folders relative to the top directory you’re downloading from? i.e. rather than “i386”, you’d need to specify
