Is there a temporary folder I can find the RPM's that yum downloads to install programs? During an installation yum shows the exact name of the RPM file but I don't know how to find it. How can I search for the RPM if I know the name of it?
I believe what you are looking for is
/var/cache/yum/<repo>/packages. This directory is expunged during package cleanup.
You can search for a file by name with the
find command. An example:
find / -name 'package.rpm' Wildcards are supported.
find -name 'package*.rpm'
I verified today that on RHEL 6.7, the files are stored in
It is also worth noting that the plugin
downloadonly is included in RHEL 6:
# yum install yum-downloadonly Package yum-plugin-downloadonly-1.1.30-30.el6.noarch is obsoleted by yum-3.2.29-69.el6.noarch which is already installed
I have found it here:
In my case I found in
/var/tmp/yum-root-xxxxx/ or your user
/var/tmp/yum-YOurUser-xxxxx/ I have CentOS 7
It found in below location here x86_64 if for 64 bit centos/RHEL OS. It exist at location as package.rpm.tmp
The location of the cache is configurable, and although the default is
/var/cache/yum/, it's much more reliable to check the value of main.cachedir in
