Summary: Cannot add USB stick as installation source; only
disks are displayed for selection
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 11.1
Version: Final
Platform: i686
OS/Version: openSUSE 11.1
Status: NEW
Severity: Major
Priority: P5 - None
Component: YaST2
AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Found By: ---


User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.1.19)
Gecko/20081213 SUSE/1.1.14-1.1 SeaMonkey/1.1.14

When I try to select an USB stick as installation source, the next dialog only
displays hard disks. Interestingly if I use the "back" button, the selection is
changed from "USB stick" to "hard disk" (exact wording may vary).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Yast, select "installation source"
2. Select "USB stick"
3. Select "Next"
Actual Results:
Only Harddisks are displayed. If you press "back", the secection from the
previous step changed to "hard disk"

Expected Results:
USB sticks should be displayed

When I did select an USB stick as additional repository during installation
(i.e.e Update), it worked, and the repository is still there. The zypper
manpage says nothing about adding an USB stick as installation source (i.e.
"service").
