I have a quick question about the Zypper command, I am running SLES11
SP3 and OpenSuse, and I want to first download the updates and then
apply the updated. I had a look into the zypper command I found these
All I need is to download the update the and apply the update later
on. This is part of my build I will need to keep a copy of all the
Which command do I have to use?
According to the man pages (man zypper):
Only download the packages for later installation.
First download all packages, then start installing.
(Not yet implemented, currently the same as --download-in-
advance). Download a minimal set of packages that can be
installed without leaving the system in broken state, and
install them. Then download and install another heap until all
are installed. This helps to keep the system in consistent state
without the need to download all package in advance, which com-
bines the advantages of --download-in-advance and --download-as-
needed. This is the default mode.
Download one package, install it immediately, and continue with
the rest until all are installed.
Use the specified download-and-install mode. Available modes
are: only, in-advance, in-heaps, as-needed. See corresponding
--download-<mode> options for their description.
