Hello, is there really no way to have the ethernet adapter detected automatically so that there will be the entry for my ethernet interface in /etc/modules.conf again? Since I create my CD according to Anas instruction it won't be inserted automatically.
Thank you for you help.

Hello Anas Thank you so much for this hint! It really works if you follow all your instruction below step by step. There are a couple of things that changed if I compare it with the installation from my repository-server.
1. at the stage when the license agreement is displayed, there is a 10 second countdown and after this the installation starts. How can I disable
this timer so you really have to press enter to continue?
2. no module will be loaded for the network interface(s) because there is no entry in /etc/modules.conf for eth0. If I install the server from my repository-server the ethernet interface eth0 will be discovered automatically and I've got an alias set for my eth0 in /etc/modules.conf. Is there a way, I can detect all ethernet interfaces and insert them all in /etc/modules.conf even I install my server from the cd as described by Anas below?
Thank you for your answer.

Hi, I have just tried reproducing this, and it works for me as expected.
- unpack ISO/CD of SLES8 into a directory /tmp/SLES - unpack ISO/CD of SP3 into a directory /tmp/SP3 - cp /tmp/SP3/driverupdate /tmp/SLES - cp /tmp/SP3/boot/loader/linux /tmp/SLES/boot/loader - cp /tmp/SP3/boot/loader/initrd /tmp/SLES/boot/loader - Edit /tmp/SLES/boot/loader/isolinux.cfg and add autoyast=default instmode=cd - Copy autoinst.xml into /tmp/SLES
Create ISO image Boot and it works.
Hello, sorry to bother you again and again. I'm using SLES8 with autoyast2-2.6.44-7 and autoyast2-installation-2.6.44-7. I think this is the latest version for SLES8 (comming with SP3). I copied autoinst.xml
the root of my self-made CD-ROM and I'm using the following parameter in
# autoyast label autoyast kernel linux append initrd=initrd ramdisk_size=65536 autoyast=default instmode=cd usedhcp=0 textmode=1
If you use parameter "autoyast=default" YaST2 will look for
in the following three places (according to Anas Nashif PDF SLES8 - Automatic Linux Installation and Configuration with YaST2) :
- the root directory of the floppy disk
- the root directory of the installation medium (CD-ROM in my case)
- the root directory of the initial ram disk used to boot the system
Cool......unfortunately it doesn't work at all in my environment. I
with "autoyast=file:/autoinst.xml", "autoyast=file://autoinst.xml", "autoyast=default" I always got this bloody control menu where it asks
the location of the autoinst.xml! From there I could choose http,
floppy, nfs....but I didn't manage to access the cdrom. If I insert a floppy with my autoinst.xml in the root, the installation is proceeding.
also can edit isolinux.cfg with "autoyast=floppy://autoinst.xml" and
Why do I get always very nice and well meant hints from the autoinstall mailing list telling me that the are using "...autoyast= default instmode=cd..." and everything is working fine. Does this have a
that I'm using SLES8 with autoyast2-2.6.44-7 and most of people Suse x.x
with the newest autoyast2 autoyast2-2.8.14-20 or so.....
I'm really stumped....
Any comment is welcome.
p.s. I'll send a box of the finest original swiss chocolate to the one
can give me the right tip to solve this problem...... ;-))
