Re: Preseeding s390-dasd is now available



I got the yakkety ISO image downloaded and mounted.  Thanks Frank.

To get an automated install using preseeding, I have tried *LOTS* of permutations on parameters.
I get to the "Configuring the network with DHCP", and I do get a DCHP address. But then it always goes to :
  Generating SSH host key
  Continue installation remotely using SSH
  You need to set a password for remote access to the Debian  installer

Here's the latest set of parms I tried:

locale=en_US auto=true priority=critical
d-i netcfg/get_hostname=myhostname
d-i netcfg/get_domain=example.com
d-i s390-netdevice/choose_networktype=qeth
d-i s390-netdevice/qeth/layer2=true
d-i s390-netdevice/qeth/port=0
d-i s390-netdevice/qeth/choose=0.0.0350-0.0.0351-0.0.0352
d-i apt-setup/proposed=true
d-i s390-dasd/dasd=0.0.0151
d-i s390-dasd/auto_format boolean true

The install process does not seem to be going to the specified URL.

Any help will be appreciated.

Hi Michael,
the server daily builds are available from here:
Look for "yakkety-server-s390x.iso", because the "y" version is the one currently in development.

Bye, Frank

Thanks for the append.

Where do I get the daily ISO image for s390x?  I found http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/20160523/ but it only has AMD64 and i386.

I also found http://us.ports.ubuntu.com/dists/yakkety/main/installer-s390x/current/images/ but that looks like just the kernel and RAMdisk.
