Choosing a special version in YaST2 image-creator is not possible

SUSE Linux Enterprise Point of Service 11


On creating an image with YaST2 image-creator it allows you to choose a special version of RPM. However, after building the image, the version is always the latest available one.


Image-creator is using the default YaST Software module and therefore it shows the full
functionality of the regular Software GUI. Due to some limitations of kiwi and image-creator,
it is not possible to change the version of a RPM at the moment.

This means, image-creator will always use the latest version that can be found of the given
pool of repositories. There is currently no proper workaround for this problem.
