rpmdrake configuration [solved]

Recommended Posts



I recently switched back to mandriva after running fedora on my old laptop for 2 years- so far it's been a great joy to be using

Mandriva.But it seems that I have forgotten lot of Mandriva tricks over these 2 years. So I need your help.


Here's the problem: I am trying to retain the downloaded rpms while applying updates using rpmdrake.

I have attempted this by editing the /etc/urpmi.cfg file and by adding the




in the global options. But everytime I start line this option gets erased and thus no files are retained in the

/var/cache/uprmi/rpms directory. This is probably not the right option to do this.


If there is any workaronud this problem I will really appreciate it.


Thanks in advance,
