[CLUG-tech] SUSE additional packages and updates

I tried to update my  Java 1.4 to 1.5 but only got 1.4 updates and not a
jump to 1.5.
I had to download the 1.5 rpm from the update repository and install it
by hand.

My question is:  how does SUSE (YOU) handle additional packages added to
the repository?
(in other words, Java 1.5 isn't on the install DVD, but is in the update
rep, but with no current version 1.5 installed the update is ignored)
Am I making sense?
