  • Hi,

    you cannot edit the answer file in ICE (the raw XML lines) directly. ICE just applies a new answer file or interprets an existing one (shows you the packages and options). If you want to edit the answer file directly a simple texteditor like notepad is enough. For more comfort I would recommend the free Notepad++ text editor (syntax highlighting etc.)

    After editing just reload the answer to your ICE, verify the changed settings (!) and build your image.

    Hope it helps.
