Modifications to CD1
by Robison, Jonathon (M.)
I have come to the conclusion that because of the differences in hardware in all my test clients, I cannot use the normal autoyast xml file methods. I have been forced to instead change default.sel to ensure my package choices. This ensures that the normal installations hardware setup systems work to make sure my clients get what their individual hardware needs.
My next step is two-fold. I need to strip CD1 of all the rpm packages, and modify the boot choices so that the "Installation" options use my NFS server instead of the CD. Anyone care to point me in the right direction on that one?
Secondly, during the normal install process users are asked to choose between "Minimal, Minimal with X, default " etc., etc. I need to change that to
1. Normal office user
2. J2EE Developer
3. Systems Developer
4. Kitchen sink.
This is NOT in the "choose individual packages" selection, but rather the normal install menu that comes before that.
Any ideas on how to change the normal install process/CD to show my menu choices instead of the regular ones?
