Where does Mandriva save downloaded RPMs for install? [SOLVED]


When one install using the Mandriva´s Control Center, the files get downloaded temporarily into some local repository for install thereafter. What is the path to the directory where Mandriva takes the rpm packages?

For example, in PCLinuxOS, the packages reside in /var/cache/apt/archives/
How does the path for Mandriva´s archive look like.

I would like to know this, because by default I think Mandriva removes the packages after installing --- this is not good for me.

Oops ... I think I got it by luck. It must be /var/cache/urpmi/rpms/
