    Default OpenSuSE Updater - Needs an install log


    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?

    Cool, thanks. I still think this should be wishlisted for a future
    enhancement to YaST/zypper... ideally an additional dialog accessible on
    the suseupdater widget that pretty-prints this data.

    As of right now, I have to be keely aware when any of a large number of
    libraries get updated so I can check to see what bugs were/weren't fixed
    or new features added since (obviously) when you write software, you
    usually depend on system libraries.
