    Default Cache Folder for Software update

    I have installed Opensuse 12.1 today as a replacement for my ubuntu system. I am unable to find the cache folder for online software installation and update.
    Usuall in ubuntu the location will be /var/cache/apt/. But when i checked /var/cache/zypp/, i am unable to find any rpms.

    Please let me know where i can fine the rpms. if this option is not enabled by default, let me know how to configure it.

    lots of things are done in different ways here: just use YaST or zypper
    to install the software you need..

    you will learn a lot about the differences between Ubuntu and openSUSE
    in these two threads (be sure and read the entire threads...because some
    of the info in the first postings are incorrect):

    yast -> software repositories -> checkbox "keep downloaded packages"

    for every repository you want to have cached (I do not use it, so you
    have to try it yourself).

    Probably in /var/cache/zypp or /var/cache/zypper somewhere.

    Zypper has also a command switch to do the same, and another that applies
    the setting to all repos. The rpms are stored under /var/cache/zypp/
    packages/*
