Thread: Does YAST keep downloaded RPMs?

    Default Does YAST keep downloaded RPMs?

    Hello

    Please excuse me if I'm posting this in the wrong sub-forum.

    I just installed OpenSUSE 11.1 and got my internet working.

    Before I install any new software I want to know if YAST keeps the RPMs it downloads after installing new software or it deletes the downloaded RPMs after it installs new software.

    If it deletes the downloadeded RPMs after it installs new software then please tell me how to make it keep the downloaded RPMs.

    You aren't posting it to wrong subforum, but there was a thread before exactly about this. You should be using:
    Code:
    -k, --keep-packages
    From man zypper:
    Code:
    /var/cache/zypp/packages
                  If keeppackages property is set for a repository (see the modifyrepo command), all the RPM file downloaded during installation will be kept
                  here. See also the clean command for cleaning these cache directories.
    Good luck.
