    Where are my RPM's ?


    Using Urpmi I've installed some packages. Still I cannot find the on my HD. Under Debian I could find the under /var/cache/apt. Is Mandriva keeping these packages, or just installing on-line wich would be a nonsense ?
    If you need a CD/DVD catalogizer, give a try to my program:

    Urpmi does not save the rpms by default. If you want the rpms to be cached, then you have to use the noclean option e.g.
    Code:
    #urpmi --noclean someapp
    The rpms will be saved in /var/cache/urpmi/rpms.

    How

    O.K, even if it isn't logically correct (why would I download the same packages more than once, every sane brain would want to keep them, for example in order to create a CD/DVD repo.), but how could I implement it if I use the system's default packet managing application "rpmdrake"? How could I make --noclean option pemanent ? Sorry, since I've left theSuse's RPM sorroundings I've spent lot of time with apt-get, wich is a bit wiser! I dont want to start a package-hunt, to collect them one by one.

    Most people do not need to keep a cache of downloaded packages and thats why its optional to save packages after an installation or update. You also do not need to start a package hunt. If the packages are available in the repos, then there is no need to search for the packages one by one. All you need to do is run the --noclean option whenever you run urpmi (rpmdrake is just a GUI frontend to urpmi) so that urpmi does not delete the cache. One thing I would do is create an alias in my .bashrc e.g.
    Code:
    alias urpmi = 'urpmi --noclean'
    That way, packages will be saved by default.
