I think it's in /var/cache/urpmi/rpms, but they're deleted after installation.

if you use command it shouldn't be deleted.

# urpmi -noclean <package_name.rpm>

By doing this, you can save the files for later use or after reinstallation of Mandriva.
Hope that helps

Once you have done setting up package manager using Easy URPMI, go to software installation and search for some package name. ie. xmms..... It will return a list of packages. You go through what you need and notice the name of the packages. You don't have to select them yet.

Open a konsole or a terminal. Switch to root user and type the command I told you earlier.

For example:

# urpmi -noclean xmms

It will then automatically select dependencies for you and save them in aforementioned folder without erasing.

PS. Just notice the package name and type
Another example:

# urpmi -noclean libkdebase4-devel

This will automatically select whole bunch of other packages that satisfy libkdebase4-devel package for installation without erasing the packages once installation is done.

Once evertyhing is done. go to /var/cache/urpmi/rpms folder and find all the files downloaded for package libkdebase4-devel

Hope that clears things up.
