OpenSUSE Install :: Install Suse Alongside An Existing Install?

Apr 18, 2010

i have a backtrack install that i would like to keep while installing suse for an everyday OS; i start the install process but when it gets to partitioning the hard drive, it doesnt seem to recognize anything already being on there; it just gives me the setup for suse, ie:
sda1 ext3 = OS sda2 or sda5 = swap. do i have to configure a partition scheme? i installed ubuntu on a desktop alongside windows very easily due to grub graphical install/partition; is there not a similar function for suse?

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 Will Not Boot Without CD On MacBook Pro

Aug 3, 2010

One my macbook pro I have previously had 11.1 and Kubuntu Lucid working (mostly) fine*. I tried 11.3 - the install went fine but now the machine will not boot from the HD. The only way I can get it to boot is via the CD. The best diagnosis I can make is that the installation screwed up the partition table such that I cannot make refit gptsync. Simple put the GPT/EFI partition table (which is required to boot the mac) is out of sync with the MBR partition table (required by grub to boot suse 11.3). I have tried various disk tools from OSX, refit and linux (parted) and none makes any difference (parted is ignorant of the problem, OSX disk tool doesn't know about linux partitions, bootcamp won't touch the disk and refit says "analysis inconclusive, won't touch this disk"). It looks like I am screwed and will have to reformat the disk before reverting to lucid.

11.1 - no screen dimming, no sound, no wireless, no fn keys, poor trackpad, screen ok under kde 3
Lucid - mostly everything worked except for an infuriating "krandr" type problem when using an external screen for presentation (krandr etc were turned off but the screen kept trying to resize during movies). sound ok, screen dimming ok, fn keys ok, trackpad ok, wireless ok. Transition
kernel too old for comedi
11.3 - no screen dimming, no fn keys, no wireless and won't boot, runs hot, short battery life.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.4 On A Macbook Pro - Failed

Mar 14, 2011

i'm trying to install OpenSUSE 11.4 on a Macbook Pro 5,1 (later 2008). From boot menu i have chosen all the possible options, but i always get the same result.

I began choosing 1024x768 and standard kernel and i get a black screen. Reboot. I chose VESA and kernel with security adjust. Black screen, then reboot. Finally, i chose VESA and kernel with no-apic and the installation wizard loaded. I configured all and OpenSUSE began to install, but when it was finishing, the screen turned black.

OpenSUSE Install :: Suse Install Formatted User Data

Sep 11, 2010

I have installed Suse on my Windows Vista 64bit machine a couple of times, but the last time I did it - after a disk change - presented some unanticipated problems. Prior to install, Windows Disk Management (whose output I was unable to paste into this question) showed that my disks were laid out as follows:

[Code].....

Disk 0 is a Seagate ATA drive, while Disk 1 is a Western Digital Ext HDD Usb Device. Looking back, I think I should have carved out a partition after M before installing Suse, but I was uncertain whether to make it a logical one or a primary, and in the past the installation has taken the 25 or so gig it needed from the last defined partition on disk 0. This time, however, it went after disk 1, and reformatted the entire drive, deleting about 300 gig of user data, including my system backup. What really suprised me is that it took up the entire drive: 2 gig for the swapfile, then a 20 gig partition, and all the rest for the third partition.

This is not what I would have expected. I especially would not have expected the installation to re-format user data. In any case, I did not want Suse on disk 1, so I reformatted the drive and then used my Partition Manager to rebuild the boot Mbr. So now, I am able to boot into windows, do not have Suse on my machine, but have lost critical data. My disks are now back to the way they were when I started (see above), except that drive F is now all free space, except for my latest backup. My question is how do I ensure, when I reinstall Suse, that it will choose disk0 for the installation and will not overlay any of the data that I have on that drive.

OpenSUSE Install :: How To Re-install Suse On A Dual Boot System

Oct 22, 2010

Gnome is falling apart and I've had a lot of nagging problems that I couldn't overcome.I'm thinking of wiping the OpenSuse partitions and doing a clean install without wiping the windows partition.I initially setup using the 11.0/XP dual boot FAQ in the How To forum.I have my Home directory backed up on an external HD. Might try KDE next go-round or KDE & Gnome as separate users. I have 11.2 i586 installation DVD.

OpenSUSE Install :: Cannot Install Suse - Does Not Recognize My CD/DVD Device

Jul 13, 2010

I built a new pc and want to have Suse again. Unfortunately Suse installation does not recognize my CD/DVD device. So I boot from DVD select installation and a few moments later there's a popup 'make sure cd number 1 is in your drive'. I also did try to load other kernel modules but nothing helps. The only drive which is always recognized is floppy drive.

Here are some details about my system: Asrock P55M Pro board, Intel P55 chipset, 2 SATA HDD's, IDE NEC 2510 DVD writer, BIOS is set to AHCI due to Windows.

I tried following:
Use Suse DVD 11.0, 11.2, x86 or x64
Set BIOS to AHCI, IDE (compatible), IDE (enhanced)
DVD writer NEC was used in my former pc and did install 11.0 without probs.

Installing from HDD is new to 11.2 thus I copied the DVD to a directory. During Installation I can select the correct partition but suse is not able to find repositories.(?)

OpenSUSE Install :: SUSE 11.4 ISO Disk Install Fails

Mar 23, 2011

Have burned a DVD of 11.4 64bit and am trying to install alongside Windows 7. The boot from the disk starts, I get a SUSE splash screen and initial menu. I check install source (F4) is set to CDROM. When I then select "install" the kernel loads, but then it goes wrong. Whatever I do I get "No repository found". It's almost as though, having loaded the kernel from the DVD, the installer can no longer see the disk.

OpenSUSE Install :: Triple Boot MacBook Pro(Mac OS, Win 7, And OpesSUSE)

Jun 25, 2010

I'm trying to Triple Boot my MacBook pro(Mac OS, Win 7, and opesSUSE).I installed Mac, Win, and openSUSE last.I have a few questions here:

1. Do I use GRUB or LILO?
2. Do I select "Root Partition in sda3"?
3. After installing the openSUSE, the rEFIt Menu become weird:

I enter Win selectioon, and then there's Grub selection again.

4. I enter Linux selection, and there's also Windows selection at the Grub.
5. Is my swap files working?

OpenSUSE Install :: Running 11.3 Live System On MacBook Air?

Jul 26, 2010

I am too stupid to run a live Linux on a Macbook air. I used both, an openSUSE 11.3-KDE Live-CD and a Live-USB key and tried several boot options.

(i) I held down "C" to boot from CD → didn't work. It's an Apple CD drive but came with an older Macbook air a few years ago.
(ii) Found the bootmenu by holding down the option (ALT) key. Neither Live-CD nor Live-USB were shown. You can only choose the harddrive (and available wireless networks).
(iii) "Command-Shift-Option-Delete" to boot from an external drive didn't work either. I assume my USB key is an external drive, right?

I don't want to install openSUSE on the mac I just want to run a live system from time to time. Therefore I want to bypass Boot Camp or rEFIt and that's probably why I am stuck here. I wonder, if I really have to setup one of them to boot into a live system? The wiki article "openSUSE on a Mac" is under review right now.

OpenSUSE Install :: Installing 11.3 64-bit Version On A Macbook Pro (5,4 Firmware 1.8)?

Aug 13, 2010

I am trying to install OpenSuse 11.3 64-bit version on a Macbook Pro (5,4 firmware 1.8). The laptop will only run Linux and no OSX so I want to use the entire disk for OpenSuse. With that in mind, during install I switch to expert mode:

1. Delete all partitions
2. Create a new "msdos" partition table
3. Create sda1 as ext4, format and mount "/" on it
4. Create sda2 and assign it as swap partition
5. Continue the remaining install as normal.

After reboot, grub loads up but boot hangs at:

Error 13: Invalid or unsupported executable format

For context, I have tried Fedora and Ubuntu on this laptop and both hang at "Uncompression Error -- System halted" error. I ran memtest on the laptop and all LiveCDs run fine on it so that rules out hardware issues. My guess is that with Fedora and Ubuntu, both use grub2 and there is some complication with grub2. CentOS and OpenSuse seem to use grub and that gets me as far as loading the kernel but then boot hangs after initrd loading at the error above.

OpenSUSE Install :: Loading On Triple Booted MacBook?

Jun 6, 2011

This is my first post to this forum! I'm just getting into openSUSE and really excited to get involved in it. I have a MacBook running OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) that I triple booted using Disk Utility. I installed openSUSE, (not WFindows yet), and have it set up to load using reFIT. reFIT can see that openSUSE is installed, but when I choose to load it it displays the following error message:

"No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key" I have the feeling there is something very simple I'm doing wrong I know this post isn't extremely detailed to please let me know whatever other information I should provide.

OpenSUSE Install :: Triple Booting Mac OS X.6 And Windows XP On Macbook Pro 7.1

Aug 4, 2011

I am having problems with triple booting my system. The original Linux OS I started out with was Ubuntu, which I was able to triple boot in the desired configuration (Mac OSX, Unbuntu, and Windows XP) after several tries (the instructions I got weren't quite right). I am now trying to install openSUSE instead of Ubuntu. However, if I install openSUSE before Windows XP, Windows XP erases my installation. If I install it afterwards, it seems to erase Windows XP, as it becomes unbootable thereafter. Perhaps this is because I am following the instructions for installing Ubuntu (format partition 3 as Ext3, mount it as /, and install the grub boot loader inside that partition), without modifying much else. I can't seem to find any good instructions online to tell me what else to do.

the instructions on installing Ubuntu screwed up because it said I had to install Windows XP first, before installing Ubuntu. I found out it was the other way around. Also, while Ubuntu was installed, all three partitions showed up on disk utility (although the Linux partition wasn't a recognized file system). However, every time I've installed openSUSE, where the partition should have been showed up as empty space on disk utility.

OpenSUSE Install :: Cannot Use SuSe And Cannot Remove It

Sep 11, 2010

I have installed 11.3 and really hashed it. I am getting no where and cannot find my way around. I tried to install as a partition with Ubuntu and Windows 7. Result. I have lost Both Ubuntu and windows with SUSE 11.3 installed and with YAST2 (as superuser) I cannot install belkin to get an internet connection, cannot instal Ubuntu or any thing else. I get the following;

[/media/Ubuntu 9.10 i386/wubi.exe] End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the latter case the centraldirectory and zipfile cannot be found on the last disk(s) of this archive. zipinfo: cannot find zipfile directory in one of the /media/Ubuntu 9.10 i386/wubi.exe or /media/Ubuntu 9.10 i386/wubi.exe.zip, and cannot find /media/Ubuntu 9.10 i386/wubi.exe.ZIP, period

I think I have not only installed this incorrectly but I have something I don't fully understand.

I would like to reinstall Ubuntu and then if I cannot get on with SUSE
