Summary: The /content file is incomplete on SLED12 Betas,
causing vmware easy install to fail
Classification: openSUSE

VMware expects to find the NAME and BASEARCHS entries in the file /content on
the install ISO. These entries are present in SLED-11, but the /content file
for recent SLED-12 appears to be significantly redacted with many entries
missing. Having the NAME and BASEARCHS entries is essential for getting VMware
easyinstall of openSUSE to work.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install a SLED-12 beta into a VMware VM using easy install.
2. Installation fails.
3.
Actual Results:
Easy install of opensuse in vmware workstation fails, requiring a manual
install of SLED.

Expected Results:
VMware is able to easyinstall SLED.
