* Help others to keep the Live Installation
Quoting blog:"live installation works reasonably well again"
I would not call installation suffering problem below "working reasonably
But let me use this opportunity to clarify something, just in case it's
not explained clear enough in the blog entry.
Years ago, the YaST Team stopped supporting installation from the
openSUSE live versions due to maintainability reasons and lack of
resources. Since then, the YaST installer is only designed to run on top
of the regular installation media. That's the only environment for which
we develop and test every change in the installer.
At some point, someone brave enough came with an alternative way of
building installable live images - adding the network installer to the
live image. And they managed to make it work after tweaking several
things in both the live image and YaST. The YaST team appreciates that
kind of neat initiatives and tries to be supportive with them.
But the original situation still stands - the YaST Team still doesn't
have enough resources to consider the installation or upgrade from the
live images as a first-class citizen. So if there is a bug which affects
the live installation/upgrade but does not affect the officially
supported installation media, this is the most the YaST team can offer
at this point:
- allocating resources to fix the bug... only when other priorities
- doing changes... as long as they don't risk the supported scenarios
- making no commitment about keeping it working in the future
Which doesn't mean we don't care. But we want to make sure the
expectations about the time-frame for fixes and improvements are clear.
