Good evening, Rahul.
Thank you for the information. I was able to find the downloaded packages
in /var/cache/yum/fedora/packages, with a few files showing up
/etc/yum.conf contains "keepcache=0", which I assume means "delete the
packages when done"; however, at the end of installation there are many,
many files remaining in that directory... currently 556 files (mostly or
all rpm's), total size around 440 megabytes.
Two questions... Why do you suppose they didn't get deleted?, and Can I
just delete them with "rm *" and free up some space?
