Thread: Clone existing system using kiwi/autoyast

  1. #1

    Default Clone existing system using kiwi/autoyast

    Hello,

    I'd like to clone an existing system using kiwi/autoyast. I've searched the documentation, but cannot figure out if it is possible to automagically create a clone of my system, including list of installed packages and whatever configuration changes I made manually. Any pointers you could give will be much appreciated.

    Autoyast is designed for that, but I don't know how automatic it gets.
    There is a yast module for it, try...

    And there is documentation, I saw it time ago.

    Yeah, there is a lot of documentation out there, but I was not able to find the relevant piece in it. Until now:
    openSUSE-KIWI Image System.
    The section 8.1 suggests to run
    Code:
    kiwi --describe workstation
    I tried it and it seemed to run for a while, but then it ended up stuck consuming 100% CPU for hours, I had to kill it. Hopefully a bug that will get fixed soon. Thanks for your response.

    Only if you report it in Bugzilla.
