Hi all,

I've just created the page

that explains a way of selecting an additional pattern during the
installation. This has been used in order to let the user select between
different installation modes, that were:

- client
- server
- standalone

when the user selects the client, the client pattern is selected; when
the user selects the server, the server one is selected; and the same
for the standalone. Then, this pattern is stored in
Packages::additional_pattern variable.

Your script inst_additional_pattern.ycp from looks very similar to
this one:

It is an added installation step that select additional patterns based
on a user's decision.

That script also doesn't need to modify the Packages.ycp module and also
works on a running system.

It looks very promising... can this script be executed before the
software proposal? And before the first boot? Is there any restriction?

This way, we can use all-in-one DVD instead of having one DVD and three
addon CDs.

This module, that presents the options using a GUI, needs of a
modification on the module/Packages.ycp, so that it adds the previously
selected pattern (the one in Packages::additional_pattern (we added this
variable, too) ).

Which three Add-On CDs would you like to use?

Instead of using this module, we had proposed building an addon cd for
each mode.
