I have a problem with automatic installation of SuSE Linux 8.1 and 8.2.
I need to select czech language but english (US) keyboard map. Generated
XML file contains
but the system is installed with czech keyboard map anyway. Is there
a way to use czech language but english-US keyboard map?
I have read in the online documentation
available that bugs of the autoinstallation
system (enable_3d, password in clear text, ...)
can be solved updating yast2 related
RPMs (yast2, autoyast2, yast2-x11, etc).
I would like to know wheter the updating processes
is as simple as the addition of customized packages:
delete the old RPM file in the repository, copy the
updated one to the same directory (noarch, i586,
etc.) and runing
to update the packet database.
I'm using/installing SuSE 8.1.
Thanks in advance!

I'm using SLES Autoinstallation. I tell autoyast to use acl, see below
Unfortunetly that does not work.
Can anybody help ?

ones selects lvm and/or softwareraid for sles8?
In sles8 induced the selection of lvm or softwareraid to an installation

It seems as it does not matter, what packages are selected, only the amount of
packaged not found varies.
2 packages not available.
The summery says:
The system to be cloned was installed from network with FTP from my
installserver (The path on the server is /SuSE/8.2, maybe something to do with
the summery screen?).
I'm pretty sure, that I'm missing something, but what?
Unfortunately I need to install the servers very quickly, so answers would be
I use the following configuration in my
control file in order to configure my
network card (a conventional Realtek 8139):
During the first X logon I'm notified
about new hardware, as if the network device
would have just been instaled. But the
hardware (as eth0) is working!
Moreover, when I run YaST2 control center I see
one network device (without name) configured and other
detected (with the real name of my card, Realtek etc).
Anyone knows what's the problem and
how can I autoinstall SuSE with the
hardware configured properly?
I also would like to know about configuring
sound cards. I have tried
but I seems doen't work. Maybe I need aditional
parameter (as described in "126.96.36.199. Sound devices"
in the documentation)? How could I get them?

A question related to the new updates for SuSE 8.2.
I have a FTP-server as installation server, a TFTP-server
for the configuration files, I boot the PC to install from the
original SuSE 8.2 CD having the info file on floppy in this PC.
I have two problems already discussed on this list:
- No execution of Perl-Post-Installation scripts. I copied the
new RPMs on the installation server overwriting the original
ones. That works, Perl scripts are now executed. Thanks!
- Keeping partitions. To solve this problem I'd need to update
the boot cd. There is a description to press the Alt-key during
boot for being asked for a floppy - well despite pressing Alt
really hard, the PC keeps booting :-( Then I thought that
"F3 - Driver Update" on the Bootmanager selection screen
would be worth a try. And indeed, it requests a disk. However,
I can't figure out, whether the patches are really applied, and
the problem "no space left on /dev/hdb/" stays.
Is there a simple way to apply the patches in my configuration.
Preferably a patched CD image I could just burn and boot from?
Is there a possibility to influence the order of RPM's installed on the system
? I want to make sure, that a 3rd party RPM is installed after inetd for
example. Can I change this behaviour ?
Second I habe problem's with the kernel. In most cases k_deflt and k_smp is
installed, sometimes the k_deflt kernel is installed after k_smp. It's not
recognizing the right kernel image. But autoyast always want's to install a

i am trying to use the y2update file Anas published in the SuSE site for
solving several problems.
it seems the pressed Alt key is detected during the boot process, as
isolinux writes 'Update floppy' (or something like this) in the screen
bottom right, and after loading kernel and initrd, y stops waiting for
your (my) CDROM/floppy to be inserted in the unit.
Any way i get no proof of it is being read so (QUESTION) is there any
log file or entry where it gets stated? Should i find some clues anywhere?
thanks in advance.
