Thread: I would like to see a list of updates installed on a certain date in a local openSUSE 12.1's YaST2.

  1. #1

    Default I would like to see a list of updates installed on a certain date in a local openSUSE 12.1's YaST2.

    Hello. I am using Yet another Software Tool 2 (YaST2) in an openSUSE-12.1, Linux operating system. I want to see a list of all of the openSUSE-12.1 updates I installed on a certain date. How may I see such a list of update names and dates of their installations, preferably one I can have sorted according to the date of installation? I didn't see a column for the date of installation of software packages on YaST2's "Installation Summary" tab.

    There isn't one that I know of, but you can run the following commands:

    su -
    rpm --last

    That'll give you the packages installed in reverse order, and you can
    filter that list to see what was installed on the date in question.

    Neat log file !

    Is that only for apps managed by zypper ? Or does it also include rpm install/removals (where zypper not used). My guess is the former.

    here (in 11.4) it seems to log all including those processed by zypper,
    YaST Software Management, and YaST Online Update..

    what i can't see is if it also records those installed/uninstalled with
    the rpm command....but, i'd guess it does not...

    however, this OP states "using...YaST2" so, zypp history should be enough..

    And the line can be complicated to include all kind of extra information.
    And import the list into calc. I'll post if interested.

    I write you "Thank you" to all of you who kindly posted something here in this thread. I found an answer this way in the Lightweight X11 (X Windows System, version 11) Desktop Environment (LXDE) in the openSUSE-12.1, Linux operating system:

    Click on the image of the green lizard or iguana, System, LXDE Control Center, YaST2..., Software Management, Extras menu, Show History.

    The installations of updates and/or software packages were arranged in the right-hand pane of the ensuing window and grouped according to their dates of installations from the earliest to the latest installation dates.
