Is it possible to select a DUD via autoyast profile?

Hi All,

I’ve got an existing autoyast profile to auto-install to a particular hardware configuration. Now we are introducing a new hardware configuration that requires a different RAID driver (mutually exclusive with the driver for the old hardware configuration, i.e. the different chipsets require different versions of the same driver) which I need to auto-install as well. This is simple enough with a separate GRUB entry - I just have a separate initrd or have a dud=<url> entry for the new hardware.

Ideally though I’d like to avoid having a user select the hardware type in grub. Now if I use dud=1, autoyast will prompt me for the location of the DUD sometime after the initial kernel loads but before the install starts. Is it possible to put the DUD selection in my autoyast profile, so that it loads at this same point? Or is this not possible because the DUD has to be loaded before the profile is examined? I’ve searched through all the documentation I can find and have found nothing that says either way - but all DUD examples I find load directly to into the kernel via GRUB…

Cheers,
Russell.

Hit send too soon. I forgot to mention that I am restricted to using SLES 11 SP1.

Sorry rusell_mora, but you are in the wrong forums. The SLES/SLED forums are at SUSE Forums

In that case, an openSUSE forum is not your best place to get answers.
