Where Are The PKGS from Urpmi Kept


Can AnyOne let me know where I can find the RPMS Packages that URPMI DownLoads & Installs Are Put. Like When I use A Debian Distro I can Go To /var/cache/apt/archives/ & Retreive them & If I want I can copy the packages downloaded from that Folder & copy them to My Spare USB HD, I Like to Collect That Software So I can install them again Later without having to DownLoad From internet again Which is Handy when you get Close to Your Broadband DownLoad Usage or one day youre without the Internet for a while.
Thanks AnyOne.
Does Urpmi Keep These RPMS Pkgs in Cache like Apt in Debian does

The default is not to keep those packages after they are installed. If you use the command line and install using urpmi you can change this behaviour. From man urpmi:

--noclean
Do not remove any package from the cache in directory
/var/cache/urpmi/rpms.

You may be able to make this permanent and apply it to the Software Manager by adding this option to the /etc/urpmi/urpmi.cfg file. See man urpmi.cfg

if you just want to know what packages installed, try

/var/log/rpmpkgs
