I had downloaded SLES 10 RC2 and got it to work with our PXE server
using some site specific autoyast.xml files.
I then downloaded SLES 10 GM, set it up on the PXE server in exactly the
same way I setup SLES 10 RC2 (that is, the directory structure, etc.) and
then just copied the autoyast.xml files from the SLES 10 RC2 tree to
the SLES 10 GM
However, when I attempt an install, YAST now claims
"could not set patterns or selections : default"
I get the same results with SLED 10, using the same autoinst.xml.
The software section is as follows:
Have things changed between RC2 and GM? Has the directory layout changed?
Are there other files/links from the root directory required?
I ask this 2nd part because when I 'snoop', the NFSLOOKUP activity
for RC2 (working)
and the GM (not-working) installs access the same files, in the same order up
to a point -- RC2 will look at the file 'content' and 'content.asc'
and then start opening
up pattern files, but GM does not.
Note that I've setup this installation directory using a DVD made
from 0.34-1 of makeSUSEdvd,
as well as using the official GM CD iso images, and I always get the
Another datapoint is that I did an install using the generated DVD
and then took the
autoinst.xml file that was generated and put that in the PXE
directory and tried the network
install using this generated autoinst.xml file -- same results.
