I'm having a problem when trying to create an automatic install of SuSE to put on CDROM.
This is SuSE 9.0, if that makes any difference.
I go through AutoYaST, tell it to clone my config and then select the Create ISO option, but then I get:
Missing Packages ./suse/i586/3ddiag-0.703-172.i586.rpm ./suse/i586/BASS-20030801-55.i586.rpm
Plus loads of others
Now, I've got the entire SuSE 9.0 (all 7Gb) on an FTP server of mine and if I go into YaST and install extra packages, they install fine. Note that this was NOT where I installed from - I used a remote ftp mirror for the install as my local copy hadn't finished downloading so I've been into Yast and changed the installation source (could autoyast be picking up the path to the original RPMS from somewhere?).
If I ftp to the machine and cd to the directories listed above its fine:
ftp> cd ./suse 250 CWD command successful. ftp> ls 200 PORT command successful. 150 Opening ASCII mode data connection for file list. i586 i686 noarch nosrc setup src 226 Transfer complete. ftp: 39 bytes received in 0.00Seconds 39000.00Kbytes/sec. ftp> cd i586 250 CWD command successful. ftp> ls 3dd* 200 PORT command successful. 150 Opening ASCII mode data connection for file list. 3ddiag-0.703-172.i586.rpm 226 Transfer complete. ftp: 27 bytes received in 2.12Seconds 0.01Kbytes/sec. ftp>
So, any suggestions for what I've done wrong? I've spent over a day on this, had the SuSE available on multiptle FTP/HTTP sites and I just cannot get it to work!
Does AutoYaST actually work (I've tried this on two different SuSE 9.0 machines)? If not, how else can I clone a SuSE 9.0 install so that it can be installed (without much user intervention) on multiple machines from a CDROM?
