I don't see anything wrong with the directory structure, but you might want
to check the PDF against the instructions given in the the release notes

I just cant get my network install to see the core distribution files.
It installs the SLES Admin guide then goes to "Finishing Basic
Installation"
and hangs at "Creating initrd..."
I've followed http://yast2.suse.com/multiplesource/multiplesource.pdf
as closely as possible.

Here is my directory

I can attach my y2log if anyone wants to see it.

Okay peeps, as I already concluded earlier, my installation source
wasn't
completely okay. After some corrections, the AutoYaST install went like
it
should.

Hey thanks!

I've already found that PDF file, but this saves me a bit reading! ;-)

Let's see if I can make a working network install this time. :-)

Durk

Hi!

Your source should look a bit different.

From /usr/share/doc/packages/yast2-instserver/network-install.pdf:

LINUX Enterprise Server 9 CD1 = SLES CD1

LINUX Enterprise Server 9 CD2 = CORE CD1
LINUX Enterprise Server 9 CD3 = CORE CD2
LINUX Enterprise Server 9 CD4 = CORE CD3
LINUX Enterprise Server 9 CD5 = CORE CD4
LINUX Enterprise Server 9 CD6 = CORE CD5

.

You have to set up a multisource installation as described in the
PDF.

Best regards,

Hi there,

Subject: [suse-autoinstall] SLES9 autoinstall hangs at creating
initrd


Hi,

I've run into a problem when doing an autoinstall (SLES9) from a
CD that I created using the YaST2 tools. Everything runs smooth up
to the point where it is "Creating initrd...", at this point the
installation just hangs. I'm trying to install on an HP DL380 G3
with the cciss hardware raid driver. Anyone has the same
experience?

Regards,
Anders
