Thread: Yast2 dropped feature requested again: live-installer

    Unhappy Yast2 dropped feature requested again: live-installer

    Hello All!
    I am very confused and sad about yast2-live-installer dropping from Yast2 features.
    It was very-very useful and important feature, which was allowed to:
    1. Install system "as is" (with all modifications) in current condition, booted from Live ISO images;
    2. Cloning current already installed system "as is" to another HDD/SSD/Flash (etc.);
    3. Backup current system in current condition to some device, image, etc.

    I has use it in my own-makes Live images, creates with susestudio/kiwi (has add this package self with some fixes) and when I was need to migrate my system to another HDD. After adding "ng" packages in Yast2 I can't solve their dependencies any more

    Hope, this most greatest and useful feature, giving advantage before other distros, will return in Yast2 again!
    With giant hope, Alexander.

    See if Calamares will work for you...

    https://software.opensuse.org/package/calamares
    Calamares is a distribution-independent installer framework, designed to install from a live CD/DVD/USB environment to a hard disk. It includes a graphical installation program based on Qt 5. Calamares can replace YaST2 Live Installer.

    This may also be of interest to you...

    http://suse-studio-users.1598176.n2....td7579901.html

    Please try Calamares 3.1.0 version from one of these repositories
    home:embar-:calamares
    home:sb56637:calamares
    See also http://software.opensuse.org/package/calamares

    note: you must add full repository for calamares, because without
    related dependencies if will not work.

    Becides, you can also try mostly fixed yast2-live-installer 3.1.11 from
    home:embar-:boo1011147
    See http://software.opensuse.org/package...live-installer
    repository. This RPM can be installed without adding repository.

    Calamares don't meet my needs. It can't tune filesystems, mount points, mount flags and many many needed options. Sadly, but I gonna migrate to Ubuntu
    Thanks.

    I create my own appliance with susestudio and KIWI since 2013 (SteelLinux), I not need distro, I need Live-installer, which will be able to install my current system to drive "as is" with features like they was in Yast2-live-installer ...
