Zypper supports different formats, the same as Libzypp. Currently there are:

* Repositories YaST2 (which are used on the installation CDs, also
called susetags)
* Repositories "XML Metadata RPM" (also known as the YUM rpm-md)
* A physical directory that contains one or more RPM packages (Plaindir)
> 2) SMART as a default package manager, if Zypper would be imposible.

Thanks! I didn't know...
