Missing Rpm programs


For some reason my RPM programs aren't showing up in my /var/cache/apt folder. Am I looking in the right directory or do I need to do something else to get them back? I'm using PClinuxOS Gnome Edition 2010.12

Since you are using RPM, please, try these two methods (which can be helpful):

Method#1

Code:
rpm -qa
OR

Code:
rpm -qa > rpm.log
OR

Code:
rpm -qa | more

Method#2


Code:
which packageName


Also check where does this file point you to look for packages:

Code:
cat /etc/apt/sources.list

PCLinuxOS : Packages in /var/cache/apt/archives/ are deleted by default.
Immediately after the package install.

Keeping the packages : Synaptic > Settings >> Files >
Please tick : 'Leave all downloaded packages in the cache' >> 'Apply'.
