Thanks for the great info....


Using the above names, the order files would have the follwing

# cat yast/instorder
/UnitedLinux-i386-1/CD1 /UnitedLinux-i386-1/CD1
/CustomPackages /CustomPackages
/SuSE-Linux-SLES-i386-8/CD1 /UnitedLinux-i386-1/CD1
/ /

I have set up these files before according to the pdf that I mentioned before but it did not mention the / entry. Is it nessasery?

No, not really, if it works for you. "/" is needed in cases one copied a source directly into the root of the export.


Now you can add packages as you wish to the CustomPackages
repository. Dont forget to run the create_package_descr script when
updating or adding new packages.

Now, do these new packages get installed automaticaly? Or does the user need to do something to get them installed? If not, is there a way to get them installed without user intervention?

You have to add them in the software resource. Otherwise yast2 will just not install them, just like any other package. An alternative is to add them to a selection, but one should avoid changing the default selections cause those are tested and work fine.

And just for my information, does SuSE 8.2 folow the same method for NFS installs as SLES or SuSE 8.1?

8.2 actually does not follow this method. 8.2 should follow this, although 8.2 is not a multi-source release.


Thanks much.
