I'm having trouble with the Package Selection portion of the
AutoInstallation applet. I installed 10.2 on my notebook
(dual-boot w/ WinXP) from the Retail DVD, and now am attempting
to create an autoinstall control file to set up a series of other
machines, which will have little in common with my notebook.
The Autoinstall applet is acting more like the "Software Management"
applet, in that it preconfigures the package selection with the
packages that are installed on the notebook, and when I right-click
on a pattern entry (or an individual package), the local menu shows
options such as Keep, Delete, or Update, rather than the
Install/Don't Install/Taboo options one would expect.
Also, if I use the Software Management applet and install or
remove individual packages, the changes I make show up in the
packages that are preselected when I go back to the Autoinstall
Note that when I highlight "Package Selection" in the tree on the
left, in the right panel the "Selected Patterns" shows "Not
configured yet", and the "Individually selected packages" count
is zero. However, when I click the Configure button, and change
to Pattern or Package Group view, then I see the preselected items.
I have tried the "Reset Configuration" button, and I tried loading
a manually edited control file with the Patterns and Packages removed.
These things made no difference.
Is there anything I can do to make this applet disregard the
locally installed patterns/packages? Otherwise, is there
I am also concerned that the dependency resolution may be
influenced improperly by what is going on with the packages.
