    Default Milestone 6 liveDVD?

    Is there really a "liveDVD"?

    It says here -

    openSUSE News openSUSE 11.2 Milestone 6 Released

    Get Milestone 6 Today!

    What are you waiting for? Grab the milestone release today! Downloads are available at software.opensuse.org/developer/ now.

    Note, if you need to try the live DVD on a machine with no CD-ROM drive, you can copy it to a USB key with the following command:

    dd if=image.iso of=/dev/sdX bs=4M

    How do I get the liveDVD image then?

    Get it like you said:
    Either from software.opensuse.org/developer or
    Index of /distribution/11.2-Milestone6/iso
    Look for build 0235.

    It must have been a typo since the only openSUSE live DVD is an openSUSE Education live DVD.

    I tried to put a comment about the live dVD wording being inaccurate, but
    • first - the web page only accepted part of my post, ignoring the sentence:

      The following sentence should read "live CD" and not "live DVD"
      "Note, if you need to try the live DVD on a machine with no CD-ROM drive, you can copy it to a USB key with the following comma"


    • second - the web page refused to accept any further , asking for the sum of one + two as a spam filter, and then refusing to accept 1 + 2 = 3 and hence not accepting any further posts/comments

    Probably failed because you took too long to figure out the answer and, in
    the meantime, it had changed the question. ;-)

    Undoubtably. The question was 1+2 = ? if I recall, and by the time I pulled found the calculator on my Windoze PC (at the office), changed the calculator from hex to decimal, ... answered a call on the phone, typed in my password to unlock my screen saver, typed in the 1+2 in the calculator again ... it was locked on me. ... Now if there was only a faster way to find the answer to 1 + 2 !!

    This is not a live dvd but its close
    Index of /repositories/openSUSE:/Factory:/Live/images

    unzip the file and dd to a usb stick.
    I tested with ms 5 and it worked as a complete install

    Oh I thought I was really going delusional. I tried 9, nine, n-ine, oneeight, and even 45c48cce2e2d7fbdea1afc51c7c6ad26. None worked.
