So what are you trying to install? x86 SLES9 on x86_64 hardware?

I'm trying to auto install SLES9 on a x86_64 box. The same procedure works on a x86 box but fails on the x86_64 box. The only difference between the two is the installation location on isolinux.cfg.

Here are the problems:

1. At startup the installer says "You are trying to install 32 bit OS
on a 64 bit
machine". I've to press "Continue" to move to the next. I've
copied the files
(initrd, linux...) from the x86_64 loader CD, so I'm not sure why
I'm getting the
error.

2. After the config file is retrieved YAST proceeds and gets stuck on the
Software installation part. The error message is "Could not set base installation: Minimal".

Here's the config entry

<software>
<addons config:type="list"> <addon>Base-System</addon> <addon>YaST2</addon> </addons> <base>Minimal</base>
</software>

Thanks
Andy
