Unhappy path of downloaded rpms by software update in FC6


I used software update in Fedora Core 6 to download and install updates. I want to archive the updates and write them on a CD. where does SOFTWARE UPDATE save the downloaded RPM files?

By default noplace, you need to edit the /etc/yum.conf file to have yum save/keep the updates when done updating;

$ cat /etc/yum.conf
[main]
cachedir=/var/cache/yum
keepcache=1

Note the cachedir, this is where you will find any saved/kept rpm packages.
