2007.1 drakrpm noclean of /var/cache/urpmi/rpms

Recommended Posts

--noclean option is fine with urpmi

but sometimes I really want to use drakrpm *and* I do not

want the cache to be emptied upon rpms installation


I have posted a thread and solution for 2007.0



I poked around the perl code and some of the draklib

and perl modules in /usr/lib but I have not find a solution yet

(greping has been unsuccessful with clean and noclean;

I also tried to locate where the "removing blabla" string is coming from when

installing a package with drakrpm launched from a terminal (in this case

drakprm is a bit verbose in the terminal)


I must be looking in the wrong place, and I am sure other people

would like a solution to this. I have not tried olddrakrpm...


There is a packet called ack

which is only 25 kb that can be used to install/de-install

to check the behaviour in the cache
