I have a system to install SLES 11 on, via a serial console. As this procedure is likely to be executed across multiple systems, I want to automate the whole process. As such, I first did a manual installation and created an autoyast profile of the installed system. Next, I added the autoyast profile to the installation DVD and edited isolinux.cfg to offer the option of autoyast.
When I try out the DVD in a virtual machine (see screenshots below), I get a graphical boot loader that displays my autoyast option perfectly fine.
But when I switch to the textual boot loader, the option isn't there anymore.
Instead, if I wish to use the autoyast profile for the installation, I need to specify the
autoyast=file:///<path-to-file> kernel option to make it work.
My question thus revolves around this: does the textual boot loader use the same configuration file for the menu? Or do I have to edit another file on the DVD.
