Convince Yast of fulfilled dependencies

Hi folks,

somebody knows how to convice yast that I actually have a version of alsa installed (self build rpm with checkinstall)? I wrote all the stuff in the provides line, the original rpm also has.

Any ideas?

If it's an RPM file you're trying to install with YaST, then you could try installing it from the command line with the flag --nodeps

did you run SuSEconfig after you installed the alsa rpm?
do a rpm --rebuilddb

@Thymox: It's already installed and perfectly working except that yast does not notice it.

That changed nothing:-(

Other ideas?
