OpenSUSE Install :: Installing 11.3 With/without Burning?

Nov 30, 2010

i've decided that i wanna learn a bit of linux, and so i tried to install suse... i've come to have a lot of problems:i downloaded both the KDE Live CD and the DVD (4++ gb), both 64 bit.i dunno about the software there, but should i get the 32 bit version becouse is more likely they works or the 64 bit is fine?

what i'd like to do is overwrite my windows 7 (basically get rid of it, only way for me to use linux).i tried installing from Live CD (burned) but it does not seems to work, tried the USB thing but still something is wrong, is like is not recognized... i can't burn 4++ gb so i was wondering if there is a way to use the ISO w/o burning it... ofc i tried but in the boot menu it asks for a CD so nothing to do.

I'm trying to install OpenSuse 11.2 from iso image without burning it in a DVD.. because I don't have a CD or DVD drive.I'm using Windows Vista.firstly I mounted the dvd image .. but thought that was wrong because when rebooting instillation won't find the image.. is that true?so, I extracted it and I opened openSUSE11_2_ LOCAL.exe. and then reboot.. got two choices (Vista or install OpenSuse) and selected install OpenSuse but my screen went "out of range" !!

OpenSUSE Install :: Checking The Iso Download Before Burning To DVD?

Nov 12, 2009

Check of Suse 11.2 iso Download

I am a bit unsure of checking the iso download before burning to DVD.


Before you burn your CD/DVD images, you should check the files for errors. Two files named *.iso.md5 and *.iso.sha1 are available. These files contains hashes for each ISO image that is available from that download location. The relevant line would look like the following:

8abac6680ecc152f103006b02f9ff67f some.iso

To be sure that download did not contain any errors, you should create this number using MS5 or SHA1 algorithm for your own ISO image.

Using Linux
On Linux, run one of the command,:
md5sum some.iso
sha1sum some.iso

If there is any difference between the output of the checksum command and the above number, the download is broken and should be repeated.'

Is some a linux command?

I assume it is run at the same location as the download?

OpenSUSE Install :: Checking The ISO File's Checksum Before Burning?

Apr 12, 2010

I downloaded the DVD ISO version of OpenSuSe version 11.2 64bit from openSUSE. I checked the iso file checksum after downloading and it was correct. However after burning to DVD i booted from the disc and started the install. After getting passed the initial settings and it starts to extract all of the packages each file fails the checksum and will not install. I tried downloading again on a different computer and burning again using UltraISO using the Disc-At-Once method, again checking the ISO file's checksum before burning.

It still gives the same errors. So i loaded windows and started the windows based install and my anti-virus (Kaspersky) says the disc is infected with a trojan. How can the disc be infected when the ISO file's checksum is correct?. The computer that i am using to burn the disc is virus free according to Kaspersky and Norton Technician Toolkit.

OpenSUSE Install :: When Verifying A Disk After Burning Suse On It It Keeps Giving Errors

Nov 20, 2009

I've been trying to burn Suse 11.2 to a DVD now for a couple of days but I keep running into trouble. When verifying a disk after burning Suse on it it keeps giving me errors. I've tried Nero and ImgBurn, different burners, different ISOs, different burning speeds (downloaded via torrent and http) but it keeps giving me the verification error.

The only thing I haven't tried is a different brand of DVDs but until now I've never had any problems with this brand.

OpenSUSE :: 11.2 - K3B Burning Data And ISO Files

Jan 4, 2010

K3B burning data and ISO files. Disc Media:Datawrite DVD & CD Discs

Old Box
OS: WinXP Pro SP3 32bit
Burning Software:Nero
Mobo:Asrock P4V88+
Processor:AMD AthlonXP 2800+ Single Core CPU
Memory:2GB DDR
Optical Drive:NEC DVD RW ND-4550A (2x, 4x & 8x write speeds)

My Current / Old box (WinXP)can burn 2.9GB of data over a LAN from a mapped drive using Nero in 7 minutes and maintain file & directory names as they are complete with upper and lower characters, spaces between words and special characters without shortening file / directory names out of the box. My new box (SuSE 11.2) was initially incapable of burning anything, ?Access Denied? I added the user to the cdrom group this allowed the burning of data but the process changed file and directory names. It changed all letters to capitols, replaced blank spaces and special characters with underscores. I still can?t burn ISO files, ?Access Denied?. The time it took to burn the 2.9GB of data on the hard drive of the SuSE install was sort of acceptable but a full 5 to 6 minutes longer and I was forced to shorten file names too.

I changed a setting to allow the full ascii character set hoping this would preserve file and directory names as they are during the burn process. I changed a setting to allow long file names too. I now have another problem, on starting the burn process and after a minute'sh K3B displayed the fact that it was going to take over 1 ? hours to finish! Yikes. After an hour it was going to take a further 2hrs and 10mins. This didn't include read varify. I aborted the burn process, this can?t be correct. I placed the LG drive in my old box, burn process took a second or two less than 7mins to complete using the same data over the same LAN. I've tested the drive for hardware errors, the drive is perfect. Am i missing something, failing to do something or doing things wrong. Is the optical drive or some other component incompatible in some way.

I'll be burning many gigabytes of data on a daily basis and i'm hoping to be able to burn a full DVD disc of mixed data types in less than 10mins whilst preserving the full ascii character set, file & directory names inc special characters and blank spaces. I still need to resolve my "access denied" problem when trying to burn ISO files too.

OpenSUSE :: CD-R Burning Fails After OPC Check

Aug 1, 2011

I was able to burn a DVD-RW with K3B (after changing "sudo chmod 4755 /usr/bin/wodim") but when I try to burn to a CD-R it fails after the opc check. I tried changing the write-speed to 8X (since that's the max for this CD-R) but it still fails.

Jul 19, 2010

Today i tried to burn a dvd but i failed. When i was adding the folders, brasero poped up a message saying that it need to rename some files to make them windows compatible,i accepted the change and proceed. Everything was looking good, but qhen it tried to burn, brasero said it cannot burn the image and failed. Asked if i want to save the log file and i did it, but it has no info!

I tried diferent combinations to burn the dvd (removing the files that need to be renamed, even i tried to burn the files to a iso image) and alwas fail exactly with te same error in the same step.I instaled the gstreamer packages from packman and all looks good.Any idea whats going on? Also, if someone has the same problem, maybe it's a bug in brasero that needs to be reported: if so, how can i get usefull info to report it?

General :: Possible To Install CentOS Without Burning It Under Windows 7?

Nov 16, 2010

I need to learn a few things about CentOS so I decided to install it on my laptop, Windows 7 is already installed on it and there is no CD/DVD drive so I though that I could just create a new partition and mount the CentOS image and install it ... but I don't even see an .exe file so I guess this is not the right way to do it

(Yeah I'm a complete Linux noob, I know that CentOS is not the most user friendly OS but it's really the one I need to learn)

So what you should I do to install it this way ? (if it is really possible)

OpenSUSE Install :: Boot - After Installing New Graphics Drivers OpenSUSE 11.4

Jul 14, 2011

I have installed openSUSE 11.4, and I really like it compared to other linux versions I've tried, but I find it requires a bit more linux know-how.

Being fairly new to linux, it has been quite the effort to learn but I started getting the hang of things via online support and such. Lately I've been having some problems.

I need linux to run a TCAD program, and it requires some openGL functionality and was giving me errors when I tried entering the software related modeling GUI.

Anyhow, I thought it had to do with my graphics drivers, so I decided to update them via ATI proprietary driver. After doing this, the system booted me into the console rather than X.

I tried numerous online guides on how to fix the issues, by running all sorts of boot commands (nomodset), and I read the graphics driver theory, as well as trouble shooting ATI graphics.

In the process, I also installed a radeonhd-xorg11-something through YAST, and that caused a black screen altogether upon boot. I managed to boot into failsafe with x, and from there I removed it via YAST, however this did not resolve issues. I also deleted any xorg.cionf files in hopes that the system will default back to the radeon driver.

As it stands right now, I can only boot into my system via failsafe mode. I'm keeping the unit off for now as it's probably tired from all the hard reboots I had to do . If someone can help me resolve this issue, I can turn it on and enter any commands required, such as finding out the graphics card, the kernel, the driver currently running, etc and I can post it here.

OpenSUSE Install :: Windows1 / Windows2 / Windows3 After Installing OpenSUSE

Jul 24, 2011

I installed openSUSE alongside Windows yesterday using the default settings. I had the installer automatically shrink my windows partition and create one for openSUSE. When I boot my computer now, the openSUSE bootloader shows up with options to boot into openSUSE, failsafe openSUSE, windows1, windows2, or windows3. Windows1 and windows2 appear to be the same thing - they both boot into windows, they read the same info for the hard drive, they have access to all the same files. Windows3 cannot start and says that the BOOTMNGR is missing. What are these three different windows options, why are two the same, and why doesn't one work?

OpenSUSE :: Tracker Store Burning CPU And Thrashing Disk?

Sep 24, 2010

I've noticed tracker-store burning CPU and thrashing disk when I login to a KDE session. I'm tempted to disable it by modifying /etc/xdg/autostart/tracker-store.desktop. But before I do that, what added value does it bring to the party? It seems like it's mainly involved with desktop indexing, which I never use (does anyone?).

OpenSUSE Install :: Installing Next To The (K)Ubuntu?

Dec 14, 2009

If you are installing along side of (K)Ubuntu, you may have problems booting back to your ubuntu distro.The openSuse installer will put a menu item for it in it's list which will go to it's menu file (i.e. all your old options from ubuntu will show up when selected).My kubuntu menu never called out a new root though so it could not find the kernel image.

I fixed it by mounting the partition from within openSuse and adding 'root (hd0,4)' to the menu entry.Seems to have done the trick,I can now boot to either openSuse or Kubuntu.Don't know how updates will be handled yet, but I'm backing up my MBR as a precaution. Note that grub is zero based for drive and partition so hd0,4 looks in the fifth partition of the first drive.

OpenSUSE Install :: How To Backup MBR Before Installing

Jul 27, 2010

I have win 7 ultimate. I would like to install opensuse but with the option to revert back to my old MBR in case things don't work out. my win 7 dvd gives a version error everytime i try to restore the MBR so i end up having to reinstall windows 7 in it's entirety Is there a tool that allows me to reload my MBR without going into windows? i recently botched an install and got a grub 17 error lol so i could not go into windows. That was funny. Also is there a way to install opensuse without touching my MBR at all. (it's going on a separate drive by itself). I want win 7 as my main, and i'm good with just an entry for opensuse, which i can remove at my pleasure if i'm tried of it

OpenSUSE Install :: Installing 11.3 On VServer?

Oct 2, 2010

I have a for me very hard to handle problem as I'm quite new to Linux.I want to install openSUSE 11.3 on a virtual Server with nothing more than a ssh shell and root Rights.

Currently running is version 10.3 of OpenSUSE. I tried updating via dist upgrade but at some point it stops with following Error: We do not have enough disk space in /etc or /dev/zerodoes not exist. Exit. error: %post(pam-modules-11.1-5.1.x86_64) scriptlet failed, exit status 1

I know that this is the Result of low RAM and/or swap Memory but in a virtual Server I can't influence those.

PS: The Reason Version 10.3 is in use, are the available preinstalled OSs so there is no higher Version available.
