Hi John,

You haven't indicated which version of SUSE you've cloned, so we have to guess
it's probably 10.0. You've also neglected to describe how you "cloned" the
installation... a proper "clone" would preserve the meta data of the files
(i.e. created/accessed/modified dates)... did you take this into account?
Finally, you haven't described the problem you're having in sufficient

If you:

a) go into YaST Control Center
b) launch Software Management (or old name 'Install and Remove Software')
c) at top-left, select 'Package Groups' filter
d) in the left-side pane, scroll to the bottom and select "zzz All"
e) scroll through the packages listed in the right-side pane

What are you seeing that is wrong under

Package | Summary | Size | Avail(able) Ver(sion) | Inst(alled) Ver(sion) ?

Or, is does this problem only appear in YaST Online Update?
If so, what are you seeing there that appears to be incorrect? (version
numbers, please.)

What installation sources are you using? What server and directory in YOU is
