That's as good a way as any. You might try verifying that by checking 
the change times of, say, the five oldest Texinfo pages on your 

   stat -c "%z" /usr/share/info/* | sort -nr | tail -n 5

If those dates agree with the ones for /root/*log and /root/anaconda*, 
then that's a pretty good candidate.
