I'm doing it differently using suse-8.2, that I'll explain below. In my case everytime after I run create_package_descr I need to refresh the installed source by deleting and adding the source using yast that points to my autoinstall source. That's because the cache /var/adm/YaST/InstSrcManager is not updated with the info/files created by create_package_descr. Am I doing something wrong or is it a bug?

Neither, this is the way it should go. If you put some packages on system and use the script, it does not imply that you also want to use the source for the running system., unless its the same version of course, you might need to do it.

My update method in short:
a update directory mirrors some directories from ftp.suse.com
renamed the suse dir to base
created a new dir called latest
linked this dir (latest) so suse
a script now links in the most recent packages from the update and base directories into the latest directory (right format). After that the create_package_descr is called.


Yast should actually be able to take the latest version if the same package exists with 2 versions. But this is not clean anyways.
