I have used Autoinst using NFS and FTP with SuSE Linux Version 7.1 a lot. It worked great. Now I'm starting to use YAST2 Autoinst to install SuSE Linux 8.1 on systems. The first problem I encountered was an error message that no software packages could be found when I tried to create the first control file. After reading about several fixes in this mailing list and installing them, that error disappeared. I copied all of the SuSE 8.1 CDs into one directory and then started the script create_package_descr to recreate the package database. I used the command without any parameters. I expected to see a file called common.pkd in the directory where I copied the CDs into after calling create_package_descr. I didn't find it. Is the file common.pkd no longer required? When yes, what should be in the file common.pkd?
Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Best Regards
