Update? XORG files on suse mirrors


I noticed that on the suse mirrors, and in the supllementary folder, there exist update files for Xorg. I couldn't add these folders to my yast sources and my question is, do I just copy the rpm's to my HD and install them with yast afterwards? or is there away to have these directories added to yast. There are also files for SaX2. Adding the KDE3.4 folder was ok.

My current goal is to update Xorg to 6.8.2 from 6.8.1.

Thanks.

installing the rpms with yast would be easiest i would think.there should be a readme file in the Xorg directory that shows what steps to take to install them.

Hi,

Unfortunately, there is no readme file. Unless someone else has another idea, I will try installing the rpms.

thanks.
