In rhel5, we can rollback the system if the updates fails, using rpm -Uvh --rollback '2 hours ago". I just want to know whether it is possible to list all the rollback transactions using rpm or yum so that i can select to which rollback date/time i have to put the system back.

This directory contains all the packages repackaged, which will contain all the previous updates applied. Is there a single command for this to directly list the tid,time & date so that we can select the time we need to restore.

Also, everytime we update, whether these directory will be overwritten or the old packages keep accumulating in the directory ?

The packages will accumulate.

I'm not certain of your question.

You can do an:

ls -lt /var/spool/repackage/PACKAGE*

or

ls -lt /var/spool/repackage | grep "MMM DD"
