Hello. I am new to this list.
I have been using SUSE LINUX since 6.0 (in 1997). I have build info file
autoinstalls in the past. Recently, I started working on creating
autoinstalls for SLES8 (and SUSE LINUX Professional 9.0). I have
everything working except for three things:
1) When linuxrc starts it can not find the (NFS) installation media. The
NIC has been detected and the AutoYaST file has been retrieved (I think),
but it takes twelve (12) keypresses to tell it to use NFS, DHCP and accept
the values the DHCP server sent. Twelve keypresses is not hands-off,
which my boss wants. Here are the lines from within my AutoYaST file:
2) After LILO is installed, there is a dialog box that does not timeout
on it's own, telling me that I can reinstall the old bootsector using a
lilo command. The boss wants the installations to be completely
3) YaST runs in graphical mode during installation, not text-mode. I
believe this should be fixed when problem #1 above is repaird. These
installs may have to run on headless machines in the future, so the boss
wants them ready. He also thinks that they will run measurably faster
this way (though I do not see how whether you use text or graphical mode
could affect hard drive and network performance appreciably).
Your help is appreciated. TIA.
