hi there,

running "rug up" on a sles9 sp3 machine that is subcribed to the catalog "sles-9-i586" mirrored from https://update.novell.com/data often causes zmd to crash while downloading the patches and rug to abort with (zmd does not appear to be running" subsequently. restarting zmd and rug helps, but needs to be done a few times on some machines.
Finally when all patches are downloaded, installation otfen throws an error: "Requested service not found. No receiver for uri 3e142016_d35d_4a......_9.rem".

Any ideas what it is and how to fix it?

cheers, Lothar
