    I'm not sure I understood what you need.

    If you plan on building a local copy of an already existing repo on internet you have many tools for that:
    wget -m
    
    Is used for mirroring a website/ftpserver
    rsync
    

    Is a tool used for mirroring files as well...

  • thanks Marc,

    yes i want to make local copy of repository,which is already exist on opensuse website,and it should be synchronise by Internet repo .

    i used

    rsync -av http://download.opensuse.org/update/11.3/ /srv/www/suse_repo

    Using rsync is a bit more complicated as you need the website to provide a module for you to rsync. You can check

    http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Mirror_infrastructure

    And use something like
    rsync -rlpt rsync.opensuse.org::opensuse-updates/11.3 /repo
    

    Check the manuals! Or you could try wget as well :)
