SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 Service Pack 1
/usr/lib/YaST2/startup/common/logging.sh: line 29: /etc/YaST/log.conf: Read only filesystemThe cause of the issue is, that /etc/YaST2 is a symlink which points to a directory on a readonly filesystem.
This prevents the YaST logs to be sent to the remote loghost.
However, there is a workaround to solve the issue. Add the following paramters to the boot command line:
exec="rm /etc/YaST2; mkdir /etc/YaST2" loghost=It is planned, that this bug will be fixed with the release of Service Pack 2.
