    RPM packages are automatically deleted by YaST....unless you manually
    changed that from the default..

    what do you mean "back up repository list from YaST2"? do you just
    want a list of the repos you have enabled? then do

    Code:
    zypper lr -d > ~/Desktop/backupOfRepoLists.txt
    and that list will magically appear on your desktop :-)

    Hi
    Have a look at rpmorphan from the Contrib repositories, then
    you need to review the list to make sure you could remove
    them.

    /etc/zypp contains the repository info, but why bother, an install
    creates the required ones for a fresh system. I just make a list and
    run zypper ar to add the common ones I use.

    If your trying to customize your install then use SuSE Studio to build
    up your system. Every repository on the build service is available to
    pull in packages as well as the ability to add your own rpms (either
    via upload or url link).
