repository for offline update


Hi all

I got Suse 10.1 off the c't DVD, read many threads about zen rug and update problems. I have a number of suse boxes physical and virtual (xen). I'd like to update them offline.

What I did:
1. downloaded .../update/10.1 directory
2. rczmd start
3. rug sl
after some time of rolling thumbs...

4. rug sa --type=ZYPP dir:///home/groups/install/Linux/Software/Suse/i386/update/10.1 update
Successfully added service 'dir:///home/groups/install/Linux/Software/Suse/i386/update/10.1'
5. rug sub update
Subscribed to 'update'
6. rug pch
No patches found.

Where is the problem, why can't I get offline updates?

7. I check:
rug sl

3 | Active | ZYPP | update | dir:///home/groups/install/Linux/Software/Suse/i386/update/10.1

so the 'service' is there, and if I do a yast sw_single, I can install software

greets chris

Meanwhile I got some success:

rug mount with option -r makes the catalogs searchable, same if I do a rug ref:

rug se mc

S | Catalog | Bundle | Name | Version | Arch
--+-----------------+--------+-----------------------------------+-------------+-------

...
| install | | libxfce4mcs | 4.2.3-13 | i586
v | install | | mc | 4.6.1-34 | i586
i | 20060804-160350 | | mc | 4.6.1-34.3 | i586
| install | | mcal | 0.7-134 | i586

but patches still come only from 20060804-160350, not in catalog update:
rug pch

Catalog | Name | Version | Category | Status
----------------+-----------------------+---------+-------------+---------------------
20060804-160350 | 3ddiag | 1848-0 | recommended | Not needed
20060804-160350 | aaa_skel | 1444-0 | recommended | Applied
20060804-160350 | acroread | 1690-0 | security | Not Applicable
20060804-160350 | apache2 | 1905-0 | security | Not needed
20060804-160350 | apparmor | 1842-0 | security | Not needed
...

There must be some way to teach zmd where to look for patches that I am unaware...
