Q: Can i build a SLE10 image with openSUSE 11.1?
Sure, but you need the right tools also installed on you build system and the repositories for SLE10 (DVD/iso/...)
Zypper from SLE10 is too old and does not provide the features we need. So you must use smart as packagemanager in your config.xml
In order to use it, you must install smart in you build system.
So please add the repository to your system http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/smart and install smart into your system.
If you are use kiwi version < 3.60 and use ext3 as filesystem, you must use a different inode size, because openSUSE 11.1 uses a different one as SLE10.
Tip: Use the SLES10 JeOS template as basis for your build
