Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES 2) Linux Support Pack 3


After applying July 2012 maintenance, it was seen that the amount of space used in /usr grew by approximately 410 MB.


This is normal and due to FireFox being updated to version 10.x.  Firefox also has a commensurate 380MB (or so) of FireFox extensions that are installed as well.
