    Question openSUSE 11.2 M6 DVD install

    Has anyone done/ doing installation of openSUSE 11.2 M6 (Milestone 6) from the DVD ? As I read somewhere that the installer has a bug and asks for another CD/DVD.

    (I am presently downloading the DVD ISO from Index of /pub/opensuse/distribution/11.2-Milestone6/iso and hence would like to know).

    If i'm not wrong then what has been uploaded are the corrected iso images with working installers.

    Is it good for normal desktop use ? Any hardware or dependency problems ?

    Its a milestone release. It should NOT be used for normal desktop use.

    Its for testing and writing bug reports.

    Hi from rushman,

    I have not been able to install m6.

    The installer will bomb out if i do not click down hard disk
    to installer as soon as I see it.
    I have down downloaded 3 DVD install iso's, 2 via torrent
    and this morning ftp which was very quick.

    The install goes well, but bombs out on kernal deps.(3 times)

    today I used a new disk. milestone 5 installed an run OK on this computor
    I am not sure that the install sees the internet.

    Hope this is of use to you.
    I am giveing up on 6 and will see if I can find 5 to download.

    regards Jim

    M6 has installed from DVD on two machines with no dependency issues. I could
    not boot an M5 system after installation from DVD. Only successful
    installation of M5 was via update of M4.

    Unfortunately, on one system, a load of updates this morning screwed GRUB so
    I had to re-install - again successfully.

    Hi cloddy,

    It seems I have 2 problems

    1 is I was running an overclocked AMD quad core, If I reduce speed I can install the live Cd.
    however it cannot update,it is looking for media.1/media in the
    non oss repo.

    the strange thing is 11.1 will install when the CPU is overclocked.

    it was thought that the repo was not up yet but I cannot find
    anyone else with this problem.

    I have been having ongoing DVD installation problems with the 11.x series, on my HP dv9000z laptop. These are documented in bz430284.

    Today, I was able to install M6 using the Live CD, but with two problems which I gather from comments on the opensuse-testing mailing list, have already been seen and, hopefully, reported in Bugzilla:

    1.) Checksum error when attempting to verify the correctness of the burned image, despite k3b's claim that it burned correctly.

    2.) Inability to access the media/media.1 file(s) or whatever from repo-oss (or wherever) - I didn't jot down the details.

    I installed using ext3 (not ext4 - I want to be able to look at things from my other Linux installations) onto a partition on my USB external hard drive. It boots nicely and seems to behave correctly, although I haven't done any extensive post-installation set-up on it yet.

    Hi N1HO,
    Well I am now up todate, in the end it
    was easy.I added the CD nonoss addon disk
    to the DVD install it contains the media1/media files.

    I now have an updated m6

    now lets see if it works.
    regards jim
