Updating SuSE with YOU


Understand that SUSE can be updated using YOU.

During updating, there is an option to choose "Remove Source Packages After Update".

So, if we did not choose this option, any idea where the Source Packages will be stored in the computer? Wanted to burn it into a disc and share it with friends who also do not have boardband connection. :P

I alway tick the 'remove' option, so the following folder is empty on my system, but maybe it's the one:

/var/lib/YaST2/you/mnt/i386/update/9.x/rpm/

I can't remember exactly where, but it's in /var/cache/yast/ ...

To be sure:

Code:
find /var -type f -name "*.rpm"
Many of YOU's rpm's are patch.rpm, but YOU also uses normal ones. Using patch rpms reduces the necessary space a lot, so don't expect filling a whole CD with them.

I've found 4 directory:

file:/var/lib/YaST2/you/mnt/i386/update/9.2/rpm -- lots of rpm
file:/var/lib/YaST2/you/mnt/i386/update/9.2/patches -- lots of plain text document
file:/var/lib/YaST2/you/mnt/i386/update/9.2/deltas -- lots of rpm
file:/var/lib/YaST2/you/mnt/i386/update/9.2/scripts -- two shell script

any idea what is the required file, else I'll burn all, only 490MB
