My customer has written a sles9->sles10 live update
I just ran it via ssh. It uses autoyast (the sles10 version) and it
installs onto a clean partition (i.e., a partition that isn't running
sles9). It works, but they've had to mess with some of the ycp files.
Note this script is specialized to their nodes because they only ship 2-3
type of nodes. It's not a general purpose script.
Here are the 3 questions they have (for sles10 version):
1) After yast completes installation (i.e., post-install), the fstab is
the fstab is created immediately after the (/) partition is formated and
mounted and before the first RPM gets installed and not during
post-install. Post-install would be too late (a lot too late actually
because post-install in autoyast terms means after the first reboot).
What yast module makes this call?
libstorage as part of yast2-storage is doing that
Thomas Fehr can tell you more about that
2) How does yast determine what the source partition
to mount is?
I dont understand the question
What is the "source partition"?
3) bootloader_finish.ycp breaks the install at the
in which way? Logs? Error message?
They got the
install to work by commenting out everything in bootload_finish.ycp.
What does this file do?
Stefan Fent and Olaf Dabrunz can tell you more.
