Hi all,

I'm experiencing some problems upgrading self built packages. This is
mostly packages that are used for installing and configuring software.

If I run zypper lu, I can see that there are a available upgrade of
this package:


Code:
--------------------
v | self-x86_64 | zypper-locks | 1-3 | 1-4 | noarch
--------------------


If i run zypper up zypper-locks i get the following message back:


Code:
--------------------
~# zypper up zypper-locks
Refreshing service 'spacewalk'.
Loading repository data...
Reading installed packages...
Resolving package dependencies...

Nothing to do.

--------------------


If I try to upgrade one of the packages provided by Novell, it works:


Code:
--------------------
# zypper up sysstat
Refreshing service 'spacewalk'.
Loading repository data...
Reading installed packages...
Resolving package dependencies...

The following package is going to be upgraded:
sysstat

The following package is not supported by its vendor:
sysstat

1 package to upgrade.
Overall download size: 173.0 KiB. After the operation, 638.0 KiB will be freed.
Continue? [y/n/?] (y):

--------------------


There are no conflicts that I can see, and if i run zypper up (no
specific package spesified) the self built package is upgraded, and if i
run zypper in -f zypper-locks that package is installed with the latest
version...

That packages are built on a SLES11SP1 system and installed on a
SLES11SP1 system. Packages are rebuilt with rpmbuild -bb package.spec.
Not sure if this matters.

Could this be related to how the packages are built? Has anyone else
seen this problem?

Thanks,

Alexander
