Download rpm with dependencies without installing

The tool we are going to use is yum-utils. First, you need to install yum-utils

# yum install yum-utils

Then, use yumdownloader command, to download the package, adding --destdir for destination the files are going to be downloaded, and --resolve to make yumdownloader download the dependencies as well. For example, I want to download rpm for elinks, and its dependencies, to /tmp:

# yumdownloader --destdir=/tmp --resolve elinks

That's all folks, happy rpm downloading :)
