Thread: Installing from nfs shared .iso problem

    Default Installing from nfs shared .iso problem

    Hi,

    I used to install Opensuse on many computers using a mounted .iso file nfs-shared over my home network.
    Booting the "to be installed computer" with the -NET cd, pressing F4 to specify DHCP+NFS...
    It worked great until 11.4; when Yast starts, I'm stuck with this error message:
    "Unable to create repository from URL 'nfs://192.168.2.10/vm/iso_mount'.
    Details: Failed to mount 192.168.2.10:/vm/iso_mount on /var/adm/mount/AP_0x00000001: Unable to verify that the media was mounted"

    I can confirm that before starting yast, the mount is ok and that the "Installation system" is loaded over nfs from the server machine.

    Does someone have a hint for me ?

    Thanks,
    Richard

    Unfortunately I don't have an answer but have experienced the same problem. When I get this error I switch to one of the virtual terminals and can mount the nfs export manually no problems. I ended up changing to a http url instead of nfs and it works for me know.

    If two people have this problem, surely you should report in bugzilla.

    Thanks for that solution, but could you explain it again more clearly?
    virtual terminal ? mount nfs export manually?

    The other person should at least add a "me too" to the report.

    Having same issue. It's impossible to install 11.4 and 12.1 over the network from samba share. And the bug is still not fixed...
