I was thinking about how to specify a list of packages to download  and
to be able to specify just updating/downloading the packages needed for
x86_64 system, without the requirement of downloading the entire
package set as well.

Currently, I don't see a way to do this -- since the packages in the
dirs needed for x86_64 seem to be mixed in with the i[58]86 distro --

Unless you have changed zypper configuration, it will do the sorting for
you, ie: do not specify architecture.

 zypper in --recommends samba-client

will examine your system and only download/install those packages matching
your system's architecture and requirements (and package suggestions re:

It will dl different packages for x86 and x86_64.


But I am trying to pre-download packages and then use that dir for a local
install dir.

zypper won't work if I don't populate the local install dir properly...

You can try zypper up --download-only

It will only fetch the packages but not install them, then you can
find the packages at /var/cache/zypp/packages
