    Urpmi: How can I store downloaded packages?


    Urpmi downloads and installs automatically the packages I select from extra repositories I added using easy urpmi, but it seems after the download it deletes the packages I have just downloaded. Can somebody tell me how to store these packages in my disk without urpmi deleting them (for future use for example)?

    I' m using Mandriva Linux 2005 LE.

    I am not a Mandriva user but after some quick research, check /var/cache/urmpi/rpms.

    I checked that directory and the only package I found there was libstdc++5-3.3.4-4mdk.i586.rpm. Where are other packages I downloaded, including digger?

    Your system will automatically flush the rpm cache directory if you do not supply the --noclean option. Next time, try:
    Code:
    $ urpmi --noclean mypackage
    The rpm should remain in /var/cache/urpmi/rpms/
