This update should be installed.



Problem description

Every time a base package is deleted or reinstalled using YaST the file update.inf gets rewritten. Unfortunately, YaST would remove all tags it does not know when writing the file. This way it would remove some entries needed bye YOU (PRODUKT_NAME,PRODUKT_VERSION) to find the correct RPMs for package update.
This update makes YaST aware of the needed tags.


Please install the updates provided at the location noted below.

Installation notes

This update is provided as an RPM package that can easily be installed onto a running system by using this command:
