Image Creator - Miscellaneous Issues

I’ve got openSUSE 11.2 RC2 installed, and I’m experimenting with the Product Creator. So far I’ve added the OSS and Updates repos,and selected the KDE desktop. I’m getting this error message:

YaST2 conflicts list - generated 2009-11-11 08:59:57

pattern:kde4-11.2-20.22.1.x86_64 requires pattern:kde4_basis, but this requireme
nt cannot be provided

] break kde4 by ignoring some of its dependencies

 ] do not install suse-build-key-1.0-909.5.noarch

 ] do not install pattern:kde4-11.2-20.22.1.x86_64

YaST2 conflicts list END

If I select the second option, “do not install suse-build-key”, it goes ahead and selects kde4_basis and populates the package list. Is this a problem? Does the “suse-build-key” exist in another repo?

That one turned out to be a package conflict between “suse-build-key” and “opensuse-build-key” So I got past it.

Next issues: I’m trying to make a USB stick. I selected the KDE Desktop and the “do not install suse-build-key”. The subsequent build attempt crashed on a package conflict between “nscd” and “unscd” - it looks like it’s trying to install both of them. So I selected “unscd” and restarted.

Now it’s giving me some kind of filesystem allocation error trying to make an 8 GB USB stick:

So … next attempt I will cut the 8 GB down to 5 GB and see if that helps. Watch this space :slight_smile:
