I want to play around with Fedora 17 (Beefy Miracle) is there any way to get my hands on all the packages, and security updates(preferably the latest), for this unsupported, EOL, distro?

The computer I would use it on is 32 bit. Old bastard.

My answer showed up right away because I'm a moderator. The other one hadn't been moderated yet, but has by now.

The old versions are archived here. What you have to do is: - Download the iso - Download all updates

@mclmmc Thanks, I found this, which provides the urls for yum to use that. Here:

you're right, isn't needed download the updates and you're lucky you can even add RPMFusion.

but, just out of curiosity, why not use the current version?

@mclmmc It's kinda personal.

There's an unofficial Fedora forum at that has a board dedicated to older versions. I'm sure that somebody there will know where you can get what you need. Just remember that there have been no updates including for security since it reached EOL.
