I don't have the SLE11 GM source DVD in my collection and with a
reasonably exhaustive search I was not able to locate it on the SUSE and
Novell websites. Which is easily explained by SLES11 GM being out of
maintainance now.

But for our usecase (just using rpm for building packages), we should be
more than fine just using the SP1 package also for SLES11 GM.

If this really doesn't work out, I can try harder to locate a GM source
ISO (one of my co-workers surely has one hidden somewhere ;-)

Best regards,
