OpenSUSE Install :: Installing Machine With No DVD Drive

Jan 7, 2010

I'm trying to install on a machine that has a CD drive but no DVD (and is currently running 10.3). Following the procedure here I created a filesystem on the server and copied the DVD ISO to that. I boot with the network install CD and in the boot options I put in
But then I get a red error diag saying
Could not find the openSUSE respository
Activating manual setup program

I go into the manual setup program, select hard disk, sda7, the iso file appears in the "Enter the source directory." dialog so I click OK. It does the "Loading the installation system" (or something, it's quick) and then errors with "No repository found". I have also tried sharing the iso file from a windows server and using network SMB but that didn't work. Tried mounting the install DVD (that I have used successfully before) on the windows machine, sharing it, and point the manual SMB install at that. Everything gives me "No repository found." I could use the Network CD to do an Internet install, but that seems unnecessarily slow and wasteful of bandwidth when I've already downloaded the DVD iso.

OpenSUSE Install :: Multiple Machine Flash Drive Install Planning?

Jun 18, 2010

I have two different laptops that I would like to make bootable flash drive installs for, but would then like to have at least /home on a common removable storage (either a big flash drive or USB or ethernet hard drive) to share between the two laptops (I'll only be using one laptop as a Linux box at a time). One laptop (Dell Latitude D410) is only 32 bit capable (Pentium M - I think there's a 64 bit Core 2 CPU available for the socket 479, but I don't know if the BIOS / mobo will support it). If I'm going back and forth between 32 and 64 bits, can I share /home? What else can I share - /usr or anything else?

OpenSUSE Install :: Installing SUSE On Old Box Without DVD Drive?

Feb 1, 2010

I've ordered and received the beautiful 4 disk set for release 11.2 that came on DVD. Like so many Linux users I would like to load it on an older Windows XP box without DVD drive. Haven't seen this release offered on CD's. I've been able to copy it via network to a file on the box, but have no idea which files belong on which CD - I assume it will take 7 or 8 disks like many of the older releases. Don't want to buy a DVD drive for the old box .

General :: Installing Windows 7 Onto A New Drive On An Ubuntu Machine?

Sep 20, 2009

I want to install Windows 7 on a separate drive on my PC that already has Ubuntu. I was wondering if anybody had any tips on how best to go about this? I was going to install a new empty drive, removing the current one, then put the current drive back once Windows had been installed. However, I'm not entirely sure if this will work, since Linux currently runs from the first drive: Will it be confused by making its drive the second drive (these will both be SATA drives, BTW), and how would I get Linux to run? Could I change which drive to boot from in the BIOS, or would replacing the MBR to provide a boot loader menu be easier?

I have a bit of a "problem" you can say. I have a computer with no cd/dvd drive nor a floppy drive. It does however have USB ports and ability to boot from LAN or USB-FDD, USB-CDROM, USB-HDD in the Bios setup menu.

I've been searching for a way to install openSUSE 11.2 on this computer using a flash drive I have but I'm not being able to even after following a number of suggestions from posts on the internet.
Anyone have any idea on what I should do?

OpenSUSE Install :: Upgraded Machine Boots Slower Than New Install?

Mar 19, 2010

recently I have installed a brand new machine with 11.2. Machine boots so incredibly fast so I decided to upgraded another older machine from 11.1 to 11.2. Upgrade went fine but old machine boots significantly slower. On new I see message "doing fastboot" and few seconds later KDE starts loading. Amazing. On old I just experience regular boot, speed is comparable to old 11.1.What am I missing after upgrade? Same kernel, almost same set of services. Both machines are pretty regular PCs/x86_64, however old one have faster/better hardware (more cores, more GHz, more RAM, 2 disks in software raid-0).

OpenSUSE Install :: Can't Install On Machine With Intel Raid Controller

Jul 20, 2010

I cannot install 11.3 on a machine with an intel raid controller I have tried with raid 1 using the card and then setting the disks to individual raid 0 and letting suse raid them. With the card doing it the machines crashes as soon as it tries to boot the first time, with suse doing the raid I just get 'GRUB' on the screen It seems a lot of people are having similar problems, does any one have any pointers. 11.2 installs fine. I would try and do a bug report but every time I go to the page it's in Czech

OpenSUSE Install :: Two Versions 11.2 And 11.3 On One Machine?

Jul 17, 2010

1. I have dual booted Suse and Win Xp in past. Can idea be applied to different versions of Suse? I have a working Suse11.2 , and I have a spare partition (15GB) which can be re-formated.

2. Can i do a clean new install to the spare partition? Thus ending with two working Suse versions? ( Separate /home partitions). This would allow a) reserve of a working system while checking that 11.3 works. Then remove 11.2 later , and how to do that.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.1 Machine Won't Boot To RAID1 Md0?

Mar 2, 2010

I cleverly built a machine with two drives mirrored, boot partition on the mirror. It crashed some time when I was not present, and was apparently writing to disk at the time, for since, it will not boot. I get error messages to the effect that there is no boot partition. At this point I am not particularly concerned to try to rebuild this array, though I have read a hell of a lot on the boards about trying that (and am daunted - everyone assumes you can boot the machine with the bad array). Instead, I am wondering is it possible to build a simple machine on a third disk, then "look" at the disks in the former (?) array, and/or potentially rebuild it?

OpenSUSE Install :: Upgrade BIOS For A Pure Machine?

Dec 9, 2010

I'm attempting to upgrade the BIOS in an ASUS 1005HA netbook. The netbook runs SuSE 11.3, and no other OS. All the BIOS utilities on from ASUS are Windows or DOS based. ASUS has a utility titled afudos that apparently flashes the programmable ROM. Running afudos using the dosemu utility suggests that one needs to create a DOS boot drive, execute afudos during a reboot with the new ROM image located on the drive.

How does one accomplish said task on a netbook without a floppy disc drive? Do I create a bootable DOS USB flash drive that contains just afudos and the new bios flash rom upgrade? And if so, how does one do this? As a side issue, it looks like all the major motherboard vendors do not support Linux. That is, all the motherboard drivers require Windows or DOS.

OpenSUSE Install :: Reproduce Existing System On New Machine?

Jan 24, 2011

In the near future I will be obliged to change my computer. Currently, my system is OpenSuse 11.2 with KDE 4.5.3 on a dual-boot (with WinVista) laptop. I plan to have the new machine again be dual-boot (Win7).

First question: Is there a way to "describe" the current system in a way that, after the initial partitioning and probably a basic installation of OpenSuse 11.2, makes it easy to reproduce the current OpenSuse 11.2 installation (i.e., installed packages, profiles; more?) on the new machine? This would reduce manual work to copying some system files (e.g., /etc/csh.cshrc and similar) and of course /home/username etc.

Second question: Same as first, but this time with a change to OpenSuse 11.3 or the soon to come OpenSuse 11.4. A potential initial installation of OpenSuse 11.2 would be possible.

OpenSUSE Install :: Kernel Update Caused Broken Machine

OpenSUSE Install :: Can't Boot Live Kde Cd Or Usb On Machine With Radeon 6870

Jul 19, 2011

As per the thread title, tried both 32 and 64-bit isos, also re-downloaded the isos in case of a problem with them

Fails to enter runlevel 5 (and start kdm), I've tried the usual nomodeset, setting no_kms_in_initrd isn't much help as mkinitrd fails after setting it

Here's the gist of the errormsgs:

(==) Using config directory: "/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d"
(EE) Failed to load module "fglrx" (module does not exist" (0)
(II) [KMS] drm report modesetting isn't supported
(EE) RADEON(0): Chipset: "AMD Radeon HD 6800 Series" (ChipID = 0x6738) requires kms Some things I've tried:

Blacklisting fglrx doesn't work with vi as it tells me 50-blacklist.conf is read-only even when I use the ! override read-only switch

Tried specifying both the radeon and radeonhd and even vesa drivers in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-device.conf when trying off a usb pen drive created with imagewriter

As mentioned earlier. tried nomodeset and no_kms_in_initrd to yes

It's a pain as I have tumbleweed on the machine and prior to putting the radeon card in it I would use a live usb drive to backup the system prior to updating, when I had an nividia card in the machine live usb and live cd would both boot no problem so it pretty much has to be something about the way it's handling the radeon card (like trying to load the non-existent fglrx driver regardless of what I do to try stopping that maybe?)

Don't know what else to try though and if I can't get it booting off a live opensuse I can see myself putting another os on it somewhere just for backing up the system before any updates

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 Virtual Machine Through Xen - Error "device 0 Vif Could Not Be Connected Opensuse....."

I am trying to install a 11.3 virtual machine through Xen on a 11.3 installation. I am trying to install from the opensuse DVD.

I tried a bunch of different settings in the previous screen and I always end up with this error I googled around and it seem to be a problem in different distros but I could not spot a solution at all

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?

I successfully installed OpenSUSE on a 4gb pen drive using the instructions contained within this portal. However, for the life of me I can't figure out why the persistent feature doesn't work.

Here's my partition table map:
