    Default Get Yast to download first and then install

    How do I get YAST in 11.2 RC2 to download the new packages first before installing it. It's not doing it by default, I think.

    It's probably very simple but I haven't found it yet

    Read (and edit) "/etc/zypp/zypp.conf".

    Mind that there is a bug connected with that type of installing

    As I am always playing about with my system and reinstalling - I just see what updates are needed from yast online updates and then just d/l them (from

    Index of /pub/opensuse/update/11.2/rpm) and separately install them

    Hi
    You can always use rsync to get them, then setup a local directory as a
    'plain rpm' repository with the correct priority, then just use zypper
    or YaST to update
