We have downloaded the openSUSE 12.3 X64 DVD and copied it to a USB pendrive and OK installing from the USB pendrive. We have just downloaded the 1.2GB's of updates from ftp-1.gwdg.de/pub/linux/suse/opensuse/update/12.3 that have been released since the release of 12.3. Is it possible to incorporate these updates onto the USB (or DVD) and get those installed in the initial installation?
I have read the information at SUSE / Uwe Gansert / autoyast / autoinstall and used the tool "create_update_source.sh" which has added the updates folder to the USB pendrive but what do I have to do next to tell the install to use this update folder?
Have been playing with autoyast and got a profile that nearly works so if it is something that gets added in the autoinst.xml, then that should be OK. I am aware of the ag_initscripts issue with autoyast as described here... [Bug 801878] AutoYast hangs at "Install Required Packages" and waits for.
Any help or advise appreciated.
PS. Please note... I have also posted this on the openSUSE forums.
