Hi Dago,

I made the following packages yesterday and I have now loaded them in to build farm NFS share: /home/testing


They are available for testing on http://mirror.opencsw.org/opencsw/testing

Apart from making x86 versions is there something else I should do?

Thanks and best regards,

The current plan is to save the selection if the linkgroup is in
manual mode *and* the selection in the package removed. On an
alternatives addition it is checked if the saved selection is
about to be re-added and then "set". This way updates will work
in addition to removals. The one problem is a removal followed
by an addition much later, which would also be noticed as update.

Best regards
