This is about request 39227 and was accepted on monday. The next FTP tree will
be synced out soonish I hope.

Greetings, Stephan

The update made its way through on May 6th or so and produced
the first 6/6 installability score. Congrats!


I further optimized my code to recognize at which stage it is.
moved script repo to the more standard name
http://www3.zq1.de/bernhard/git/autoinst.git/

Then I reactivated my old partitioning code to make a more complicated, but
still rather regular setup with 4 disks having 3 partitions each.
/boot is a RAID1 of sd[abcd]1
/ is a RAID6 of big sd[abcd]2 (or optionally RAID10 which still fails with 11.2)
swap is a RAID0 of sd[abcd]3

This worked fine on KDE-LiveCD and (after a few tries) also on NET-inst
http://www3.zq1.de/bernhard/mirror/opensuse/video/openSUSE-KDE-LiveCD-x86_64-Build0596a.ogv
http://www3.zq1.de/bernhard/mirror/opensuse/video/openSUSE-NET-x86_64-Build0598a.ogv

Unluckily, this puts some extra IO load on the disks, so I will only run the
RAID tests once in a while.

Then I added next to the videos the autoinst log which is more suitable for
further automatic analysis. It shows for example, which keys were pressed and
how long it took to get from one screen to another (via the timestamps in the
screenshot names).
Example for the above RAID6 test:
http://www3.zq1.de/bernhard/mirror/opensuse/video/openSUSE-KDE-LiveCD-x86_64-Build0596a.ogv.autoinst.txt
It shows the partitioning to take 221 seconds while the following configuration
parts together took just 32 seconds and everything before partitioning made up
for another 53 seconds.


partially unrelated:
on the KDE-LiveCD, boot/i386/loader/isolinux.msg mentions
"openSUSE-11.3-livecd-kde" but the target really is named
"openSUSE_Live_(KDE)". Furthermore, the "linux" target is not mentioned at all.
GNOME-LiveCD is also affected.
When I made my bootable SuSE-7.3 CDs seven years ago, I had a cfg-line "F6
isolinux.cfg" to print the config verbatim, so that I had a way to find out
those magic strings even when I forgot to update the help text. It is
admittedly not very user-friendly, but having an outdated help text without
such a tweak is certainly even less user-friendly.
