Question A curious YUM and RPM question


just a curious question.

when I update my Fedora using YUM, and after downloading some of the RPM's, and I decided to stop the upgrade. Will YUM deleted the previously downloaded RPM or will it store in a dir. If it stored them in a dir, which dir will it be?

No, it will be stored in /var/spool/up2date. Partially downloaded files and newer updates (if available) will have to be downloaded again, though.
