Re: [suse-autoinstall] Package install fails with "ERROR"

It sounds like a drive partitioning problem, if the installer is
unable to mount a partition from your harddrive, it might install
to that mount point anyway, which would be your ramdisk.

Hello all,
I've managed to get my test machine to boot from the network and locate the installation source. Now, when it launches Yast2, it gets the configuration file and begins the installation just fine, but after it installs about 10 packages, it begins to fail on each package. The only message in the error log shows the package name and "ERROR", and there is nothing of consequence on the other console screens. It fails on every single package after the first 10-12 and if I hit enter to get through all the packages, it finally says that there was an error on installation and that it couldn't write to LILO. Has anyone else run into this? Could this be due to the way I have my installation repository setup? I copied all the install disks into one directory, and set that directory as the installation source. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
