deleted content in this ticket duplicated from fate as discussed with marita. The fate entry is still not set to DONE but the code already has some kind of auto-update included. I worked around an issue which came up interlinked with this on ssh+X installs in

Verification run:

However during discussion in the openQA call questions came up if the system we test does not change too much under our hands while testing, i.e. calling the same test a later time would behave differently because the installer would have an update?
dzedro will ask the YaST team how they plan to test the update feature, e.g. provide a fake update channel (over SCC?).

So I consider this ticket done unless dzedro comes back with different ideas from next meeting with YaST team. Also, I would like to resolve it only after the corresponding fate issue is marked as done.

As I just learned from the self_update can be disabled with


as boot param. So we should have two scenarios:

  • self_update=1 (current default)
  • self_update=0
