Is there a way with SLES11 autoyast profiles to produces pop-ups or something similar , without any required user input ?
that's possible since openSUSE 11.2 but not with SLES11 http://ugansert.blogspot.com/2009/07/more-timeouts-for-autoyast.html
( we don't want any user input , the process should be fully unattendend ) We have about 20 scripts running from autoyast right now , the total time they take to complete is now 30 minutes, that's the reason why we would like to show somehow that there is something actually runnning.
there is no easy non-ugly way on pre-11.2 versions. You can try to raise popups from your scripts with some X11 programm like "notify-send" but that's neither nice, nor does it work in ncurses installations.
