This seems to shift with every moon, where does yast keep downloadedI think they're kept in /var/cache try:
On the one hand the online installs are no fun when you have several
machines to do. For another, some may never be connected and for
such online is out, period.
$ tree /var/cache | less
anymore. /var/cache/zypp/ contains subfolders reflecting the
gereneral permitted repositories but no rpms.
bash: tree: command not found
lines ?-?/? (END)
+ Stopped tree /var/cache | less
though 'man tree' does produce the man page.
This is another example of useful Yast features that get zapped from
time to time for reasons I couldn't rationalize, like the disk usage
projection that once told me if packages to be installed would max out
I have used tree since I started with Linux (around release 6.4), and
since 10.0, I have had to install it separately (first thing right
after system load & initial update is complete!) It is on the DVD for
all of 10.x and 11.x.
If they had not included it, I would have went to bugzilla and bitched.
There is nothing else that can do what tree does. Perhaps if you wanted
to do a bash script with hundreds of 'ls -l' intermixed with 'cd ...'
It wasn't installed, now it is. It found a cache of repo_5 which I had
enabled for a test online update. There are assorted xml data files in
there but no sign of the full or delta rpms that were downloaded and
Neat utility BTW, it also showed up many mb's worth of useless language
caches since gone.
If there's a cache for /var/cache/YUM and it doesn't have any .rpm files
then the cache has been cleared.
You could try a
$ sudo find / -type f -iname "*.rpm" > listofrpms.txt
BTW, you should try using zypper instead of Yum going forward. Currently
zypper does everything that YUM can do and more.
$ zypper search packagename, packagename
$ zypper info packagename, packagename
$ zypper update
$ zypper patch
