AFAIK libzypp does support hardware dependencies, but the way this works is
usually that some package has an "enhances" dependency on that hardware. If
there is no package that could have this "enhances" dependency (and this is the
point here), the only way out I see is to create a pseudo package - one that is
basically empty or consists only of a "README" file - that has that "enhances"
dependency and either a "notify" text set or, better, a license the user has to
confirm. Even though "install notify" might sound better at first, that is only
displayed if the user clicks directly on that package, so this won't work out.
A license OTOH the user will have to confirm, i.e. he will be prompted in any
