I did that a few days ago for a 9.3 Pro. The purpose was to have dhcpd, bind and squid on CD1.
I copied the CD-Content to sl93cd1/
/opt/kde3/share/apps/krpmview/create_package_descr \ -x ./setup/descr/EXTRA_PROV -l en -l de -p ./setup/descr/
worked for me. I have no idea why I found create_package_descr only in this directory. It also had a minor bug with the parameter order for find.
From the docu:
Change starting from SUSE Linux 9.1/SLES 9
To provide extra dependencies which can not be extracted from the rpm files, an extra file with missing dependencies is available in the directory suse/setup/descr. The file EXTRA_PROV can be used when recreating the package database using the -x option.
I admit that the documentation leaves many question for R&D or this mailinglist...
Maybe a AutoYaST-Wiki would be a good idea? Or is it already in existence?

I wish everything were documented more clearly to begin with.
On a SLES9 SP1 I'm trying to add a webwasher RPM to the install repository created with the Yast installation server function. I put the RPM into SUSE-CORE-9-CD1/suse/i586, and ran
create_package_descr -x suse/setup/descr/EXTRA_PROV -d SUSE-CORE-9-CD1/suse
Now if this were understandably documented. What the heck is EXTRA_PROV, and are the paths right?
