Dear all,

as a systemadministrator for a research group at a university,I'd like to use autoyast to install version 9.3 on all the computers. While trying my autoyast file on a test system, I get this error while partitioning:

"Error while configuring partitions. Try again."

When I look at the partitioning after this, it looks like yast is determining it's own partitioning scheme, since it partitions a swap partition first and then a / partition.

my configuration file looks like this (for partitioning):

It should look slightly different...


<partitions config:type="list">


In order to catch these kind of errors early on,
you could use...

% xmllint --nooout --valid autoinst.xml


after checking y2log I found the following error:
