Thread: Zypper: define download directory

    Default Zypper: define download directory

    Hi all,

    I am running into the issue that my root partition is too small to perform a distribution upgrade (12.2->13.1). Zypper can not write all required files (only about third) on that partition.

    Is there a way to define the download location for zypper? My home partition has enough space and I would like to use that one.

    Thanks in advance,
    Quentin

    Remember that "zypper dup" upgrade from 12.2 to 13.1 is not supported,
    and according to devs it should crash (mainly because zypper toolstack
    got a major internal upgrade about the end of 12.3.

    You should do two upgrades, with 12.3 as an intermediate target.

    I _think_ it is "/var/cache/zypp/". You could mount bind it somewhere else.

    Or instead, do an offline upgrade, which should support such a jump and
    needs no temporary space.
