Trouble installing 11.2 via NFS, earlier versions work OK

Hello everybody,

as the topic says I’m having trouble installing the latest openSuSE 11.2 32bit using NFS.
The issue appears during the text-interface, before switching to the GUI.

The first strange thing i noticed after mounting the ISO is the change in User/Group-IDs. Earlier versions don’t do this:

# mount ./openSUSE-11.2-DVD-i586.iso /images/suse11.2 -o loop
# ls -lah /images
dr-xr-xr-x  7 **root root** 6.0K Dec  1  2006 suse10.2/
dr-xr-xr-x  8 **root root** 6.0K Jun 10  2008 suse11/
drwxr-xr-x  8   **98   98** 6.0K Nov  6 16:21 suse11.2/
drwxr-xr-x  8   **98   98** 6.0K Nov  6 14:14 suse11.2_x64/

When starting the installation process on the client system I get a “No repository found” message. Checking the error console (Alt+F4) shows:

SQUASHFS error: Minor/Major mismatch, trying to mount a newer 4.0 filesystem
SQUASHFS error: Please update your kernel

Older Versions (11.0, 11.1) are working OK. This error is suspicious since it remains after deactivating the NFSv4 in /etc/sysconfig/nfs and commenting out the NFSv4 export lines in /etc/exports.

Here’s my /etc/exports:

/images/suse11                  *(ro,root_squash,async,subtree_check)
/images/suse11_x64              *(ro,root_squash,async,subtree_check)
/images/suse11.2                *(ro,root_squash,async,subtree_check)
/images/suse11.2_x64            *(ro,root_squash,async,subtree_check)

I hope anyone can help me with this issue, Thanks in advance !

I forgot to mention that the linux kernel and initrd in /srv/tftpboot have been updated with their latest version von the 11.2 ISO. The behavior is the same with earlier versions.
