------- Comment #14 from romain.pelissier@xxxxxxxxx 2007-02-09 11:10 MST -------
Ok, here are the result of the 'workaround' describe above using new kernel rpm
and makeSUSEDVD.
I have used the GM iso as source. Using makeSUSEdvd with the option -i -c I
have extracted the files from the iso to a folder. Then I have broke (ctrl+c)
the generation of the gpg key and so the remaining iso creation process
(Because I need to replace some files).
- I have replaced the files in \i586 with :
kernel-bigsmp-2.6.20-53.1.i586.rpm
kernel-default-2.6.20-53.1.i586.rpm
kernel-source-2.6.20-53.1.i586.rpm
kernel-syms-2.6.20-53.1.i586.rpm
kernel-xen-2.6.20-53.1.i586.rpm
kernel-xenpae-2.6.20-53.1.i586.rpm
- I have replaced the files in \noarch by a 'dummy' file (dummy because in
http://software.opensuse.org/download/Kernel:/HEAD/openSUSE_10.2/ there are no
reference to the \noarch folder, so I hve just copied it from the newest
version that I found and renamed it. I know it is quite dirty but it is just a
test)
kernel-docs-2.6.20_rc7-2.noarch.rpm (in fact it was
kernel-docs-2.6.20-53.1.noarch.rpm)
- There are no x86_64 folders but it is not a problem since my system is a
32bits so I have skip this step
- I have replaced the files linux and initrd from
ftp://ftp-1.gwdg.de//pub/opensuse/distribution/SL-OSS-factory/inst-source/boot/i386/loader/linux
and
ftp://ftp-1.gwdg.de//pub/opensuse/distribution/SL-OSS-factory/inst-source/boot/i386/loader/initrd
- I have modified the permission on those files (should be wrtable by the
current user like other files in this folder)
- I have launch makeSUSEdvd with the -C option to create the iso
- during the makeSUSEdvd script, it asked me for some info which I have entered
as well as a passphrase which I have provided (no a blank one, don't know if it
make a difference)
- I have burned the resulting iso file and booted with it
- and it boot ! no hang at all
- During the boot process, just after the 'Loading installation system' task, I
had this message : >>> linuxrc v2.1.21 (kernel 2.6.20-rc7-2-default <<<
installation system does not match your boot medium, it make your bugreports
worthless'
- Pressing ok make the installation resume
- I have perfomed a check on the dvd and it was a success
- then come the licence agreement (I had a warning because this cd was mad eby
makeSUSEdvd)
- I choose update as a method of installation
- Then the installation tried to build the catalogs and I have this error:
Error occured while creating the catalog : c:///?devices=/dev/hdc,/dev/hdb
Source rejected by user. (just under this error message a windows display
Creating source c:///?devices=/dev/hdc,/dev/hdb - Downloading
c:///?devices=/dev/hdc,/dev/hdb/gpg-pubkey-01912208-4)
- And I can't go further
So:
- It seems that the new kernel (initrd or linux I don't really know) works well
now
- The catalog creation does not work (possible issue with makeSUSEdvd?). Is
there a way to fix this part?

I will put here the result of hwinfo for the kernel mainteners but maybe it can
be cool that this bug could be also assigned to David Bolt because he helped me
with the makeSUSEdvd option a lot. Or should I create another bug report for
the catalog issue?
Please let me know. We are getting close fixing this bug!
