How to save patches & updated rpms?
I am running openSUSE 11.1 (kde 4.1 desktop & default kernel). I was fiddling around with yeast & it just downloaded & installed a million patches (took about 3 to 4 hours); but I can't figure out where are these patches being stored on my disk!! you see, I am on a narrow-band INTERNET connection, so if I decide to reinstall SUSE, I am going to have to go through this process of updating the system again.
So can somebody please suggest me a method, so that every patch & every updated rpm is stored on a particular place on my disk; so that next time if I do a fresh install, I can just update from my disk (if it is possible at all).
N.B. Basically what I want to do is download all the updates onto my disk, then manually apply them at my convenience
Thanks in advance
