Followup on my YOU question last night

I mentioned last night that on my new SuSE 9.2 system, I was not able to get 
any patches from YaST Online Update eventhough I knew patches were 
available. My proxy settings were correct et. al. My other desktop had no 
problem downloading the patches, and my laptop was also able to download 
patches. The RPM database is fine. 

The solution was to shutdown to single-user mode, delete the contents 
of /tmp. After I did that, I was able to download the available patches.
