Product Creator and Add on Creator are hopelessly broken in 11.1. They both have several bugs that have not been fixed since it debuted. You are better off to simply copy the updates and burn a plain DVD and then add it as a source with higher priority then the other repo's. It seems these YaST modules have been deemed not worthy to fix in 11.1.

The other day one of my friends installed openSUSE 11.1/KDE 4.1.3 on his laptop and afterwards he updated it. He had to download about 1.0 GB of updates. And well, I thought that maybe we could have an update add-on DVD to avoid big updates after fresh installs. This wouldn't be an openSUSE respin or anything like that. People would download openSUSE as usual and then the update add-on DVD et voilà!
I have done some test but weren't a complete success... I made my own update add-on DVD by downloading the folders noarch, i586 and i686 from the update repository, then I used YaST Add-On Creater tool to create the DVD image and I tried it on a fresh install of openSUSE running on VirtualBox. Well, it updated a few packages but not everything, and re-ran it and nothing happened. No updates for me :-(
Any thoughts on this?
