I have just installed Suse 11.0 and I have a “stupid question”.
When you install a package from one Internet repository using the yast software manager:
- where does it download the packages that it is going to install (the path)?
- does it delete the downloaded packages by default after they are installed?
- if not how to force to delete the downloaded packages after the installation?
I use now much more Internet repositories then I used to do in the past (even for installation non only for updates), and I do not want to risk to run out of space
Another question: does it uses different mirrors for the Oss an Non-Oss repositories depending on the country you live in/the language of the OS … etc or it is always uses the same repository? In the past you could (should) choose manually the mirror from a list, now it adds automatically one.
I mean it would make sense out of performance reasons to use different repositories. If it is the case: how does it chose which repository to use? I live in Germany (i.e. Timezone=Germany and clearly the IP is a “Germany IP”)but my system is set with language and keyboard = English US → what does it use in my case?
