hi everyone

we have reinstalled the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 (i586) SP3 and applied the security patches of Jan by Vendor. Does anyone know any command / the directory to list out the currently secruity patches as i will have to apply the latest patches? Before that, i would like to make sure the security patches of Jan is already applied. I tried the zypper command to check but it seems that the server must be connect to Internet.:eek:

Hi
Either disable the repositories so they don't refresh, else try;


zypper --no-refresh se -i -t patch

So se is search, -i is installed only and -t is of type patch.

Hi
Apologies for missing this, so can you list your repositories?


zypper lr

If you have installed patches they should show up, so how did you
install the patches?
