OpenSUSE Install :: Failed To Create A Live USB In Win 7
Mar 18, 2010
I tried most of the methods using a graphical interface to create a live USB through a 64-bit dvd image to install opensuse 11.2 including unetbootin, Win32DiskImager, Mandriva's Seed... Everything failed, so I'm left with the option to do it through the command prompt. There is a dd tool for Windows, and I got the command line instructions in the Live USB page. One thing I don't understand is that how is insert my path of the iso image for this command in Windows: # dd if=/path/to/iso/openSUSE-11.2-KDE4-LiveCD-i686.iso of=/dev/sdX bs=4M;sync; Should I replace the bit # dd if=/path/to/iso/openSUSE-11.2-KDE4-LiveCD-i686.iso, with like something like # dd if= CDownloadsOpensuse11.2x-64.iso?
I downloaded openSUSE 11.3 to my MacBookPro, whose disk drive has been broken for some time now. I want to install to new msi cr610 laptop that shipped WITHOUT windows. I could order the box with an install disk and printed manual, but if there's any way of creating a bootable USB stick from the download I did to my mac, that would be great.
I am trying to create an usb install from an gnome-live cd. All I have done is not working:
dd fedora liveusb-creator fusbi linuxlive usb creator unetbootin pendrive
All I can get are errors saying cang find kernel or error like that. I have used linux and windows environment. The iso I am using is fine, I am sure because I have instaled it on two pcs. Iso gnome-live >> usb (bootable to install)
I'd like to put both the 32-bit and 64-bit OSS 11.3 onto a 2GB usb stick from their respective Live CD ISOs. I tried to make a partitions on the usb ( 1GB ) each, and then dd each ISO to separate partitions, make 1 of the partition bootable. But that doesn't work, even from the bootable partition. Any suggestions how to achieve that goal? Ideally there would be a main boot loader, which then provides option to boot each of the distro.
I would like to create a Suse 11.3 Live CD with Acronis on it so that I can boot from any computer, use Acronis, and still have some Linux commands available to me. Is this possible? I could part with OpenOffice.org to provide room for Acronis.
I currently have Acronis selectable in my grub menu, and it runs from my hard drive.
I've put openSUSE several times in USB flash drives. I've used the old method with dd ... and the new one with dd_rescue ..., shown in SDB:Live USB stick - openSUSE This way a partition is created (sdb1 or sdc1 or ...), with the Linux file system (ID: 83). One of the problems of this system is that all the data of the pendrive is deleted. Another problem is that sometimes openSUSE doesn't load completely and I cannot use it. And another of the problems is that even if I create another partition (for example to make the Live USB persistent and "remember" the configuration of my computer) and I put some of my photos, songs, films there when I plug the pendrive in a computer running Windows XP I cannot access the data. (What about Vista and 7?)
Other Linux distros can be put in pendrives using the FAT file system (for example W95 FAT32 (LBA), ID: c). This way my personal data or files (photos, documents, ...) can be opened from a computer running Windows XP (and the personal data is not erased when putting the Linux in the pendrive). So I would like to know how to create a Live USB drive with personal files that are avaiable for many Operating Systems, including Windows XP. Perhaps the solution is to put openSUSE in a FAT file system, or put it in Linux file system but create another partition with FAT file system (for this openSUSE should avoid the 1st partition, sdX1, that should be for the personal data, so Windows XP can access it).
I just downloaded OpenSuse 11.1 64 bit live cd from it's official site.I have live usb creater in my xp box , with the help of which I successfully created live USB for fedora 11 earlier. Now the problem is whenever I try to create live usb using Opensuse live ISO image after extracting all files to usb , it gets failed.The same thing is happening with OpenSolaris 11 live cd iso image. Does this mean that live usb creater I have, was only foe Fedora distros?
I'm running a Lucid Wubi system and I just got everything exactly the way I like it. My brother was having a hard time with Windows and I recommended Linux. Well being the inpatient person he is, he wasn't impressed with it "right out the box". But he's seen my setup and still wants to give it a shot. So I was curious if there was a way to create a Live CD from the way I have it already instead of downloading the "start-up" version from the site? I think they call them distros but I'm not for sure. This would be great I think to help introduce my brother and others to this awesome OS, and plus when I mess with the wrong things(which I have, and will again) I could re-install it from where I was instead of having to redo everything.
Is it possible to create a Live CD install of my existing Ubuntu installation? I mean, to create a Live installation CD of my system as it is now on my pc, with all the programs and utilities that I have installed, so that if the system crashes and is unbootable, I could be able to restore it to the state when I created the Live CD.
I've been using KVM with great results on Slackware but one thing about Xen 4 that appeals to me is VGA and PCI passthru. I did try to install the Xen Slackbuild some time ago but failed. I'm afraid I can't remember why now. As far as I remember the Slackbuild was just out a day or so, so perhaps there were unresolved issues in the early days. How is Xen now? Does it run as well as KVM, for HVM as well as PV guests? Does virt-manager allow you to create Xen VMs or just KVM VMs? I'm very happy with KVM on Slackware (and Xen on NetBSD) but as I say, the Xen 4 release has some enticing features which pretty much do away with dual- and multi-booting. Full-throttle graphics in a VM?
Subprocess failed. Error: RPM failed: installing package xen-4.0.0_21091_06-0.1.1.x86_64 needs 27MB on the /boot filesystemI seem not to be able to change the size of the /boot, but 11.2 loads okay but not 11.3There only 19MB left from 66 and I can't make it bigger, I hope there is someone thathas seen this. I would like to see some of the update with XEN.
I need aufs support/patch for kernel 184.108.40.206 as i i need to create a live linux distro for my organization and linux live scripts (the scripts which I am using for creating live linux distro) require aufs and squashfs support. There is a directive for squashfs in kernel configuration file but nothing for aufs and the patch available at linux-live site seems not to work.
When I try to run the Online Updates to the system through Yast I get the following errors for each package:

Whenever I used "Ctrl+S", "Ctrl+O", or any other keyboard command that opens a KDE FileDialog, OpenOffice crashes every time. OpenOffice produces the dialog closes it and produces another two and then crashes. This happens from every OpenOffice program. Running OpenOffice from the terminal, the error that it outputs is "Failed to Create XIC".If I just access the same commands using the mouse such as Clicking "Save As", "Open", or any other command that opens a KDE FileDialog OpenOffice does not crash.The error is very similar to that of "http://web.archiveorange.com/archive/v/wmeLD7sxJO78TtWLhIm8".OpenOffice 3.2.1scim 1.4.7-174.1KDE 4.4.4openSUSE 11.3 64-bit
I have a SONY PCG-R505TE laptop with an external CD/DVD, it connects via what I think is a PCMCIA card, the drive came with the laptop and functions fine. I currently have Windows XP running on this laptop, but it's very slow.I downloaded openSUSE-11.3-GNOME-LiveCD-i686.iso and sucessfully burned it to a CD.I have the laptop bios set to boot from CD, and it appears to be doing that no problem. When it boots I first see the welcome screen, then the openSUSE Installer, whether I select the Live (GNOME) option, or the Installation.. it loads the kernel, and then loads the KIWI boot systemit is on the third event, waiting for CD/DVD dvices to appear... that something seems to fail... I then see Failed to detect CD/DVD or USB drivethen a rebootexception and it reboots in 120 seconds.
I have a non-broadcast network (ad-hoc?) that I attempt to connect to via openSUSE 11.2 running off live USB. It does nothing. It never connects and when I view it with available networks it just shows the name and "insecure" (even though it's WPA2Personal) and no percentage.How do I get wireless to work?
I downloaded the live cd iso and installed it on usb using this command (while it was unmounted):ddif=open SUSE-11.2-KDE4-LiveCD-i686.iso of=/dev/sdc bs=4M...I then restarted and it loads into a main openSUSE screen, I choose the "OpenSUSE 11.2" and it starts loading. Then it shows the progress abr under the gecko guy and it starts to load, that moves to a few diff. places on the screen and then it goes black. Any ideas?
I am using an HCL k38 pdc laptop and I am unable to boot KDE live cd of opensuse 11.4. The system boots to a graphical screen where a progress bar is shown. the progress bar proceeds to about 90% and then my system hangs. ALl I can see on my screen is that graphical image with suse logo and progress bar. Though my mouse works and I can move it all around the desktop but if I try pressing any key (CAPS/NUM LOCK/SCROLL LOCK) i dont see any LED notification for that. this concludes that the system is hanged.
Key board has no issue as I can use it in Windows.
I tried to boot the lice cd in text mode and it worked very fine from there I installed the system on to my HDD in dual boot mode with windows XP. But after installation when I boot opensuse from HDD it stucks at the same position.
I think this issue is with Nvidea graphics card as when the system boots I see an error message that says that the RAM has an address conflict with VGA ROM.
How can I use opensuse. I have even tried ubuntu 10.10 but it also hangs while booting or after booting. So far I have been able to manage only Sabayon Linux working on this machine however the ubuntu 9.10 was working on this system and it also started behaving similarly after I upgraded it to ubuntu 10.04.
I have done a big big mistake (I could beat myself up for that) with my netbook and now I am sitting here, not getting openSUSE installed on it.
I wanted to try another netbook linux and installed (more by accident than intentionally) Easy Peasy Linux. This system is not bad, but cannot work with the wireless adapter in my netbook. However, I then wanted to install openSUSE 11.4 again, which ran fine on the netbook. But the install always gets stuck in different stages and I donīt know why.
Sometimes a failure message comes up: "filesystem is read only, rebooting in 120 seconds", but I am not really sure if this is for the harddrive or the usb stick. In other occasions, the bootprocess until install gets stuck at "starting KDM". Nothing happens then... thats it.
I already have reformatted the usb stick and copied the openSUSE Live CD via Imagewriter on it again... no success.
So now I am really confused, because I donīt know if there is something wrong with the harddrive? Or is it the stick itself? How can I find this out?
If it is the harddrive, how can I at least refomat it? Remember: no CD or DVD drive, just USB stick...
How can I find out if the image on the stick is ok? I already tested the install media and it said: "checksum ok"
A network client computer gets ip address from dhcp server, loads initrd and failed on Loading Istallation System stage 4 or 5. If I try to continue installation in manual mode I get an error net_activate: ifconfig eth0 up failed I tryed network cards from different vendors it did not help. Ubuntu linux installs successfully in current environment.
I downloaded the latest OpenSUSE LIVE CD and burnt it with Nero at 4x speed and there was no errors.
I booted the CD up and I hit Run Live CD, I come to errors
ID "1" Respawning too fast: Disabled for 5 minutes ID "2" Respawning too fast: Disabled for 5 minutes ID "3" Respawning too fast: Disabled for 5 minutes ID "4" Respawning too fast: Disabled for 5 minutes ID "5" Respawning too fast: Disabled for 5 minutes ID "6" Respawning too fast: Disabled for 5 minutes
I am not sure what to do as I want to use OpenSUSE,
I have made many attempts at getting the live CD to boot from a usb key with no success. I have read the various tutorials, including a kiwi method. There seems to be something missing.
What (and where) is the executable file that boots the system? I used the Imagewriter to create my key. It has a syslinux.conf file but I see no executable called syslinux. I see nothing in the boot folder that is executable either.
The tutorial that has the imagewriter method has little detail. The kiwi tutorial has exquisite detail but it applies to kiwi and I can't figure out how to "translate" it. There must be something very simple that I am missing. I tried this on 2 different machines and it failed 2 different ways.
I am currently running 11.2 on my PC and have been doing so since it was released with no problems. When I try and install from my DVD (MD5sum and media verified) all goes well until the installer gets to the "searching for linux partitions" bit and then it dies completely. I have tried installing from a KDE and GNOME live CD and they both boot cleanly and load a usable desktop in both cases with internet access and all my Windows and openSUSE 11.2 partitions visible and browsable.
When I try to install from either of these discs Yast2 gets loaded and then just dies. I am at a total loss as to how to progress any further. Incidentally Fedora 13 won't install either so I suspect it is a kernel issue as my hardware has not changed since I installed openSUSE 11.2. I have been using SUSE since 10.0 and have never has any problems installing before now.
