This isn't an autoyast question, but it involves an installation server, and I'll bet someone here will know the answer... More to the point, I'm adding packages for my company's software, and I want to do it right! :)
With YaST2 pointing at an SLES9 installation server, I find that "Install and Remove Software" does not find the source packages for a given name when you do a search on it (with the filter in search mode). The sources are part of the distro though, and sometimes someone in my dept. wants to study them...
For example, the k3b binary package is found if you search for it, but not the source package.
The two packages are in the CD1 and CD3 directories, respectively, on the server:
The package database on the server (./SUSE-CORE-Version-9/CD1/suse/setup/descr/packages) is standard SLES9, and I see that both the binary and source packages for k3b are listed there. Why doesn't YaST2 find it?
Is there something in the syntax of the packages file that indicates whether it should be found by the YaST2 search?
Thanks. -- Charlie
