On SUSE you have a directory /usr/src/packages/RPMS wich is where e.g.
checkinstall puts its stuff. I would also not do the cd, because that
requires a cd after that as well. In your example I would just do
`createrepo ~/repository`

Nice to know. I with my 87 RPMs don't need it.

You can also use it to download RPMs from anywhere or copy them from CD's
or whereever, wich can be interesting if your connection is expensive.
