up2date ??

In an effort to save some time during a patch window.. I would like to download the updates and then just install the downloaded updates at a later time...

I know that up2date -d will just do the download and stor them in /var/spool/up2date

Currently there are a lot of *.rpm and *.hdr files in this directory...

Do I have to remove these old ones first before I do the download ?

and when I am ready to actually install what I downloaded with the up2date -d command, what up2date command will install them from here ??

You don't need to remove those files.

>>> what up2date command will install them from here

Just up2date -i
