Probably stupidly, in console (ncurses) YaST 11.1 I have configured my system to update automatically on a daily cycle.

However, neither in console YaST nor in the KDE Updater applet can I view what zypper has been up to when it's been running on its own.

Is there a log file somewhere I can go to see the output of updates that were installed automatically for me so I can review what packages were updated and/or changed?

Also, I am subscribing to the MonoDevelop "Preview" repository which contains the latest SVN build of MonoDevelop which has built-in support for live debugging and IDE breakpoints. Will YaST auto-update also install these packages as well or do I manually have to force them to update in YaST?
