--> Which server did you use ? Have you tried to repeat it with
another server ? In Germany, I would recommend
ftp.gwdg.de ; if this doesn't work, use ftp.suse.com which is
sometimes more up-to-date than the mirrors (it takes some time for the
new files to make it to all mirrors).

Strangely enough, my 8.0 systems show in
/var/lib/YaST/patches/i386/update/8.0/patches/

yast2-module-autoinst-833.20030425.new
yast2-module-autoinst-834.20030115.installed

So version 834 seems to be older than version 833. Strange numbering.
And why is 833 not installed ? Sorry for not giving more help; now I'm
wondering too what's going on there. Maybe someone on this list can
help.

Regards,
Armin
