[opensuse-autoinstall] Example of class usage (sles9 sp3)

I am trying to set up classes for my installations, and cant seem to get
the syntax right. Does anyone have any full examples of how to set it

What I have so far.


$ cat autoinst-DLx85-site1.xml
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE profile SYSTEM "/usr/share/autoinstall/dtd/profile.dtd">
<profile xmlns="";
<classes config:type="list">

$ cat classes/Platform/autoinst-DL385.xml
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE autoinstall SYSTEM "/usr/share/autoinstall/dtd/classes.dtd">
<autoinstall xmlns="";
..... Whole bunch of hardware specific stuff .....

Similar for the other class files.

I created my class files by splitting out a working profile into
components. The profile as a whole works but when I try to do it via
classes, the install bombs out when it tries to partition the disk
saying that "An error has occurred while trying to create the
partitioning plans. Make sure that the contol file has the correct
syntax and values"

Not sure if I have a syntax issue, or some other problem. Does anyone
have a set of working files I can look at to see if I am missing
anything? Or any better way to debug this? Some way that I can see if
the file is getting merged properly?
