I don't understand this statement. YaST/zypp is/are definitely able to
resolve dependencies, no matter if the sources are local or remote.

If there are unresolved dependencies, your installation sources setup is
not complete. That is, there are sources which depend on each other, and
only parts of them are known to your YaST/zypp setup.

I think it's more a documentation problem: The information about which
sources depend on each other is not presented prominently enough. It's
not true that YaST/zypp don't resolve dependencies.

Normally I would now ask you for the output of "installation_sources -s"
and tell you which additional sources you need. But unfortunately, the
"installation_sources" command is gone in 10.1 :(
