Using a nfs source for the control.xml file didn't work as described.
** Doesn't work (as input to the boot prompt):
(one will be asked for a valid path to a control file, later)
** Doesn't work , either:
(no colon after nfs-server1's ip in the autoyast statement)
Are you sure this one does not work? It looks exactly likethe one you
Anas Nashif <nashif(a)suse.de> gave the tip:
>Try without the : in the URL <snip>
>So the URL should look like this:
Ok, this was my mistake, it should say
Ah - the trick is to leave out *both* times the colon ..
If one of these lines on the boot prompt, it works:
** Works, too:

No, the 'install' keyword is evaluated by linuxrc. 'autoyast' is
evaluated by linuxrc as well, but it passed as is to YaST2 and the
problem was with parsing the url. a colon only make sense if you intend
to add a port number. This has been fixed and as said a fixed version of
the RPM will be available on the FTP server as soon as it is test
Anis Nashif mentions further:
This is a known issue and it was fixed and
an updated version will be available for nfs installs soon.
Is there a open list of "known issues" ?
So far, this is the only major bug that was reported. Alot of non-bug
issues were posted to me, mostly feature requests and improvement
suggestions which we will be very glad to receive.
(I've got some more small issues, but if they are
known, I don't want
to bother the list with them.)
It would be great if you can post them. I will create a list of 'known
bugs and issues' on http://www.suse.de/~nashif/autoinstall/
. Major bugs
with solutions will be added to the support data base after verification
and successful testing.
And - soon is approximatly when?
(Should I start to play with autoinstall boot CDs with the old version or
is it worth to wait for the new version?)
I will be posting some more information about this bug and how it can be
