    Storing all the RPM packages installing via yum installer


    For storing all the RPM packages installing via yum installer, add this following line to your /etc/yum.conf file.

    keepcache=1


    For Example:


    $ more /etc/yum.conf
    [main]
    debuglevel=2
    logfile=/var/log/yum.log
    exactarch=1
    obsoletes=1
    gpgcheck=1
    plugins=1
    installonly_limit=3
    color=never
    keepcache=1

    Then all rpm packages installed via yum are stored in /var/cache/yum/*/packages.

    you can change the cache directory by specifying
    cachedir=<mydir> in yum.conf.

    For Example:

    $ more /etc/yum.conf
    [main]
    debuglevel=2
    logfile=/var/log/yum.log
    exactarch=1
    obsoletes=1
    gpgcheck=1
    plugins=1
    installonly_limit=3
    color=never
    keepcache=1
    cachedir=/home/user/Downloads

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    For how-tos like this (which are REALLY appreciated - thanks!), please close them when done.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
