When FC5 packages are updated, is there information or a list of things that were updated ?
I don't want to update and take a chance breaking something unless the changes are major.

Thanks !

Well, you can do "yum list updates" to see what updates are available for your system. The biggest potential breaking change to look for are "kernel updates." For instance, you may have drivers installed which were for a particular kernel version or something like that. Just something to remember.

Afterwards, if you need to see what happened, type:
rpm -qa --last | tac
That will list the updates in order from oldest to newest.

I was actually looking for ChangeLog info.
What changes were made in the update ?

When an update is available, is there a list somewhere of the changes made in the update ?

Thanks
