Old YaST source files - can I delete Suse 9l1


Hello everyone

I normally forget to click the "Remove Source Pacakges" button when YaST
is updating things with YOU. I'd like to manually remove the source
packages. Problem is, I'm confused as to which directory contains them,
and afraid that if I remove the wrong stuff, they might just be indexes or
pointers I'm removing and the system will get out of sync, thinking I've
not updated these packages when in fact I have. I find three
subdirectories that seem to have stuff that have to do with YaST packages.

Can someone explain the difference to me between these three directories
and the files contained in them.

/var/lib/YaST2/you/mnt/i386/update/9.1/rpm/i586

/var/lib/YaST2/you/mnt/i386/update/9.1/patches

/var/lib/YaST2/you/installed

Thank you

Harry
