ISO Image als Installations MediumTired of keeping your DVD's around? Want to create ISO images and add them as installation sources?
These commands have been tested on openSUSE 11.
- First create a directory where you will store your ISO files.
- Now create your ISO
mkisofs -iso-level 4 -J -R -o /home/sources/su1100.001.iso /media/SU1100.001/
- Now we add the ISO as a software repository
zypper ar -c -t yast2 "iso:/?iso=/home/ricardo/sources/su1100.001.iso" "openSuSE 11"
- Verify that the service has been successfully added
- Now we can delete the DVD repository as an installation repository
zypper rr 1
- Let's quickly enable automatic refresh (optional)
zypper mr -r "openSuSE 11"
- Now we can finally test the ISO repository and install a package like nmap
zypper in -y nmap
SuSE 11.3 failSuSE11.3 did start with black screen after installation.
Only the failsafe session did boot.
Take a look at the procedure I used to install the nVidia driver as I installed openSUSE 11.3:
- During the install, when you have the option to change your booting setup, I add nomodeset to the kernel load command for the normal load/start of openSUSE. This kernel startup option is already present for the Failsafe selection for openSUSE.
- During the first start of openSUSE, I download the latest nVidia Video driver to the downloads folder.
- I change/save the System/Kernel option NO_KMS_IN_INITRD from "No" to "Yes" in the /etc/sysconfig Editor in Yast.
- I do an update of openSUSE on the first run of openSUSE and then a restart/reboot.
- In grub OS selection I add the command line option "3" to the openSUSE start line so that I just go to the run level three terminal prompt.
- I login in as root and change to the /home/user/Downloads folder.
- I run/install the NVIDIA video driver using "sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-256.35.run" and answer all questions as appropriate for my system.
- Type in reboot at terminal prompt to restart the system with new video driver.
