I've been using autoyast since openSUSE 10.2 and it's a great tool. Thanks to every single
developer who contributed to it.
While re-testing all the custom control files we use at the lab with Leap 42.3 release I
have noticed a strange behaviour with the option 'confirm' that controls unattended
Here's my scenario : GPT partition table with bios boot (not efi), custom partitioning but
nothing silly, then various options. Whatever I add to the control file the installation
process works flawlessly until I finish testing it. Then I turn it to unattended with the
following directive :
The installation with full control file goes well but the system won't reboot (no valid
boot device). After a bit of search I noticed that it is related to the pmbr_boot flag on
the disk not being set. Adding it manually with parted solves the problem so as a
workaround I added a very simple chroot-script to make it.
Since I thought I had probably messed up something I did a lot of testing to reproduce it
(even with minimal control file) and figured that the confirm option is the issue. I can't
figure how it would affect the bootlader part of the process after package installation
but it does. Anyone have any idea or should I simply fill a bug report ?
Thanks in advance
