    Default Saving Yast downloads

    I know this has been asked before but have forgotten the answer. Does Yast save the files it downloads when updating and when you install programs or delete them as soon as it's done. There used to be a check box to allow you to choose but it has been gone for some time now. It seems a logical option to me.

    If Yast does not save the rpms by default how do I tell it to save a particular program I am installing and where would it put it so I can pull it out and keep it?

    Also is there a new fix for the current version to allow you to choose whether to exit or continue using the package manager after you install or remove anything?

    Another item it would seem would be a logical default option.

    Thanks

    Yast -> Software Repositories.
    You can check/uncheck "Keep Downloaded Packages" for each repository separately.

    rpms are saved in /var/cache/zypp/packages subdirectories.

    Hmmm. Perhaps that doesn't apply to 11.1? I cannot find that function anywhere in the repo setup.

    sudo zypper mr -kt
    This will keep all packages for all repos.

    Look at the files in /etc/zypp/repos.d. You'll see the boolean 'keeppackages'.

    Yeah, I remember doing this once before now.

    Thanks
