I've got my SuSE network install server in place and it's great for installing SuSE over our network. However, it's not so good with Autoyast at the moment. I have a few questions which don't seem to be covered anywhere:
- I have set the Reporting Confirmation option to "true" yet I never get any confirmation box before installation begins. Is there something I am doing wrong or is this a bug?
- What happens to options that are not set in the config file? For example, if I do not specify any partitions in the config file then the installer seems to just go off and install with whatever partitions it thinks are appropriate without even consulting the user (remembering that this is will full prompting and reporting turned on).
From my point of view at least it would be a lot nicer if the Autoyast
processes dropped you into the installer at the stage where you can choose options and reconfigure the system as with the manual installation unless you specifically turn this off with the config file for an unattended install. At present the Autoyast system is almost completely useless for my purpose since it just seems to choose some default options for things that are not specified in the config file.
Can we get this changed in Autoyast pretty quickly? ....or is there something I'm doing wrong or should know about?
