rpm querying

Hi just a quick question

I have a list of packages installed on a box using rpm -qa

How do I query the list of packages available from the software sources in yast?

Any help appreciated

For suse do a search for repodata. i.e: /var/lib/zypp/cache/Source.0QFySO/repodata/filelists.xml.gz

Run the yast2 sw_single module. In the first drop down box you can filter by installation source. In the right hand pane, will be packages from just that source. A second drop down box will appear where you can select one of the other search options.
