On 2010/10/10 02:01 (GMT+0200) Carlos E. R. composed:

However, the configuration file that came with 11.2 contradicts you:
...
Now, both you and Marcus say that only 11.3 and beyond have that feature.
Then why does 11.2 says it has it if it doesn't?

libzypp-6.21.2-1-1-1 that shipped on the 11.2 DVD contains zypp.conf
timestamped 2009/11/02 containing:

## Packages which are parallel installable with
## diffent versions
##
# multiversion = kernel-default,kernel-smp

On my 24/7 11.2 system I do have a significantly larger zypp.conf.rpmnew
timestamped 2010/04/13 containing:

## Packages which can be installed in different versions at the same time.
##
## Packages are selected either by name, or by provides. In the later case
## the string must start with "provides:" immediately followed by the
capability.
##
## Example:
## kernel - just packages whith name 'kernel'
## provides:multiversion(kernel) - all packages providing
'multiversion(kernel)'
## (kenel and kmp packages should do
this)
## Valid values:
## Comma separated list of packages.
##
## Default value:
## empty
##
# multiversion = provides:multiversion(kernel)

The version of zypp.conf I'm actually using on my 24/7 11.2 system uses the
earlier syntax, which works.
