Question SuSE 10, YaST, Installation Sources


I have a local directory that contains the Novell SuSE 10 ISO's that I'd like to use as a local repository:

I've copied the 4 SuSE 10 ISO's to this directory.

When I try to add the ISO's as a local installation source using YaST, CD1 is added to the list with no problem, but YaST seems to fail when I try to add 2, 3, and 4 with the following:

Unable to create installation source from URL 'iso:/?iso=/usr/local/pub/SLES-10-x86/SLES-10-x86-CD2.iso'. Details: "Cannot create installation source. Try again?"
Any assistance most helpful!

Try using Yast for installation media. Go to Yast, add on product or installation source. Then put in the cd and see if that works. If it works for disc 2 it should work for the rest.


installation, sources, suse, yast
