    Since you did not get a reply until now I will try to give you some thoughts
    what I would do.

    Suse Studio allows you to upload an autoyast file (I never tried that option
    but you can do and see how it works for you).

    The first step is of course that you need such an autoyast file. Most
    probably you did not use the option to create one when your original
    installation was finished. So you you have to do it now.

    The command for this is
    Code:
    su -
    yast2 clone_system
    this will create by default a file autoinst.xml in /root which you should
    copy to a place which is more useful.

    Now login to suse studio and in the menu at the top choose Studio.
    It presents you a page with predefined templates, one of them has the name
    "Import". Choose it and it gives you the possibility to upload your
    autinst.xml.

    Now follow the usual steps to create the appliance.

    while suse studio was building the distro, i have got the following error:
    useradd: UID 102 is not unique.

    Try changing the assigned UIDs, or allowing them to be assigned automatically.
    why is that?
    thanks.

    Check your Users ID: may be you have two users with UID 102. You can use this command:

    cat /etc/passwd |grep 102

    the third occurrence on each line is the UID (the field-separator is ":")

    yast2 clone_system
    this also will include the softwares, those are independent from suse's software repos?
