see below. First, you have to add every row to array by assinging to $types_temp[] (note the []).
Then assign that variable and finally use it in smarty.
$query = "SELECT * FROM package";
$query_result = @mysql_query ($query) OR error(mysql_error());
while ($info = @mysql_fetch_array($query_result))
{
      $types_temp = array();
      
      $types_temp[] = $info['pack_name'];
 
}
 
STemplate::assign('types_temp', $types_temp);
=================================================================================
 
TPL:
            <select name="package">
             <option value='null'>-- none --</option>
            {html_options options=$types_temp }
           </select>
