so I kept going as you told. I sucessfully copied the SLES and UL cds into
the required directory and added the new nfs source in yast. Works!
Then I put additional packages into /export/SLES8/sles8-i386/CD1/suse/i586
as someone else was told before.
Then I run the following command
/export/SLES8/sles8-i386/CD1/suse -l english
The output was as follows:
output dir: ./setup/descr/
is not a directory: ignoring
processed 159 packages
now recoding to UTF-8: packages packages.DU packages.en
So, the two additional packages have benn recognized. But something seems to
go wrong. When I start a yast and try to install these packages, they are
What about /usr/share/autoinstall/EXTRA_PROV may I change that directory ro
my own needs? Can I use additional directories except e.g. i586, noarch, ...
What does aotiyast expect to be in /usr/share/autoinstall/EXTRA_PROV?

You have to add UL and SLES sources as different sources. For example, if
have followed the instruction in 6.1.3 you will have an NFS mounted
with "ul" and "sles8" (might be with other names of course)
sub-directories. You have to add those seperatly, i.e. first
source will be
and source 2 will be
/exports/sles8 is where both UL and SLES have been copied as described in

You can put them in either SLES or UL, but make sure there are no duplicates
remove older versions. When adding new packages, you have to create the
database as described in in the manual for autoyast.
