[opensuse-buildservice] Problem with "build" dependency resolver

Hi All,

I have a problem with the opensuse "build" script which is used in MeeGo, too.
For the tests below I used the current git version

I want to build an external kernel module. In the specfile I have
%define kernelversion [...]
BuildRequires: kernel-netbook-devel

I use the kernelversion macro later to avoid the use of $(uname -r) commonly
found in the Makefiles of out-of-tree kernel modules.

I pass several repository URLs to build:

sudo /usr/bin/build \
--repository \
--repository \
--repository \
--repository \
--repository \
--repository \
--repository \
--repository \
--repository \
--repository \
--repository \
--repository \
--repository \
--arch i686 \
--target i686 \
--root /mnt/pool/meego/build-root/ \
--cachedir /mnt/pool/meego/build-cache \

The latest version of the kernel-netbook-devel package (at the time of this
writing) is

Unfortunately this is not the one "build" decides to install in the build-root
directory. Instead it chooses some older version (not the oldest!) and yet
another version for the kernel-netbook package (required by
kernel-netbook-devel). I have tried to use
BuildRequires: kernel-netbook-devel =

without success.

Can you please give a hint what is going wrong. I have already sent an email to
the meego-packaging list about this[1] and another user has the same
problem and wrote to the meego-dev list[2]. Nobody answered.

Thanks in advance,
