Thread: Opensuse 11.2 iso "too big" to burn to DVD or copy

    Default Opensuse 11.2 iso "too big" to burn to DVD or copy

    Greetings,

    Before I get started, I just want to preface the fact that I am relatively new to Linux.

    I downloaded the 64bit OpenSuse 11.2 DVD iso last night (4.3 gb) and attempted to burn the image to a DVD-rom with brasero in Ubuntu 9.10. I tried twice with two different DVDs and both times the disc burned to 4.0gb before returning with an error saying the file is too big.

    The same thing happens if I try to copy the .iso file to my 300gb external - even though I have more than 50gb free.

    Has anyone else experienced similar issues? Does this mean that I have to redownload the image?

    Thanks! -- Slaol

    I burned the openSUSE-11.2 64-bit DVD with no such problems.

    From where did you download the DVD ?

    Prior to burning, did you run an md5sum check on the iso file, and compare that to the md5sum value on the Novell/SuSE-GmbH site? Are they the same? (they should be).

    I downloaded it via the torrent file on the softwnare.opensuse.org website.

    Unfortunately, I did not run such a check on the iso file - to be honest, I do not even know how to do this

    Is there a link on this site that details the process?

    Thank you very much!

    Google for 'torrent verify' (without quotes) and you should get some good
    hits. Add in the name of your torrent software (vuze/azureus, ktorrent,
    etc.) for results specific to your software.

    Good luck.

    Hi,

    4G is the max size of a FAT32 file. You said you are new to Linux, is your gear still running on Win format?

    The iso file you downloaded is approx.4.2G if I remember correctly.

    I hope that helps....

    I forgot to mention, you can find out what the md5sum value is supposed to be by looking at this page:
    Software.openSUSE.org

    Please pay attention to the comment above about the limitations of FAT16/32. If you downloaded the iso to a FAT16/32, it will for certain no longer be any good.

    Thanks to everyone for all the links and information

    I will spend time reading the information and then post what I've learned.

    (ADD: I'm impressed with the speed of getting a reply on these boards - much quicker than with the Ubuntu forums!)

    From the openSUSE web site, the md5sum for the 64-bit openSUSE-11.2 DVD "iso" file is:
    Code:
    6a09295e34dc030319d040f67f4742c6  openSUSE-11.2-DVD-x86_64.iso
    when you check the md5sum of your downloaded iso file, it should be the same.

    I ran the following in my terminal:
    user@user-laptop:~/Downloads$ md5sum openSUSE-11.2-DVD-x86_64.iso
    And this was the response I got:
    6a09295e34dc030319d040f67f4742c6 openSUSE-11.2-DVD-x86_64.iso
    So I guess this is not the issue

    It might be the formatting issue with my hard disk mentioned earlier, though I am not sure. My laptop is a Dell Inspiron 1525 that came pre-installed with Windows Vista. I removed Vista almost two years ago and have been using various distros of Linux since. Currently, I am running Ubuntu 9.10 (full system install from the live cd). I'm not really sure how my drive is formatted, as I simply chose the default options when I ran the install.
