zypper download only comand

hello guys i am trying to get zypper to download rpms in a certain folder so i can install them later but i dont understand how to get it to work. i am running this command
linux:/home/nico/rpm # zypper install --download-only virtualbox-ose virtualbox-ose-host-kmp-default virtualbox-ose-qt

i cd to where i want the files to be downloaded and run that command. but after download i cant see those packages in that directory. what am i missing?

They should download to /var/cache/zypp/packages. There was a bug (https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=635596) but that was fixed in the latest zypper update.
