I've been working on this all day and it's driving me crazy.

I'm trying to run a PXE install and it gets to the point of parsing the xml file and then throws this error up when it gets to software configuration.

I used yast2 instserver and yast2 autoyast to generate the install source and have been modifying the info file that I've placed in the initrd for different attempts.

Here is my autoinst.xml
