atom:MozillaFirefox-branding-SLED-3.0.3-7.4.3.i586[SLES10-SP2-Updates] needed by patch:slesp2-MozillaFirefox-6433-0.noarch[SLES10-SP2-Updates]
MozillaFirefox-branding-SLED-3.0.3-7.4.3.i586[SLES10-SP2-Updates] provides MozillaFirefox-branding-SLED == 3.0.3-7.4.3, but has another architecture.
There are no installable providers of MozillaFirefox-branding-SLED >= 3.0.3-7.4.3 for
MozillaFirefox in SLES/SLED10 SP2 is only released as a 32 bit package, the 64 bit version of MozillaFirefox wasn't released until SLES/SLED 11.
Unfortunately, because of an administrative error, MozillaFirefox-branding-SLED version 3.0.3-7.4.2 was released as a 64 bit package, and users on x86_64 machines who installed that online update received that 64 bit version.
With the update to 3.0.3-7.4.3, only the 32 bit package is released, as is correct for SLES10 SP2. However, as a protection against repository errors, rug and the zen-installer will not automatically change the architecture of an already installed package. This needs administrator intervention to override. To accomplish this using rug, one possibility is
rug install MozillaFirefox-branding-SLED.i586
