References: #1133537 #1135762
Affected Products:
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Software Development Kit 12-SP3

An update that has two recommended fixes can now be installed.

Description:

This update for kiwi fixes the following issues:

  • Update to v7.04.50

  • Fixed udev startup Due to a change in the udev rules an error in kiwi was triggered that outlines an incomplete udev startup sequence. This patch fixes the creation of the dev tree by udev and is related to bsc#1135762

  • Set SERVER variable as expected by netboot code (#674) This commit sets $host from $SERVER variable if present and no $kiwiserver is given from the command line. The same criteria applies for $type and $SERVERTYPE variables. Fixes bsc#1133537
