    Default Convert Opensuse Installation into an image

    Hello all,

    I want to install opensuse,add/remove programs,themes,customise and then re-spin it into an image which I can carry,perhaps as a live medium.

    I have heard Fedora has tools to do it.Does opensuse have any tool to do that?

    Anybody here has tried it?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi
    Best look at getting an account on SUSE Studio;

    Else you need to look at kiwi;

    Hi,

    I got an invite really quickly, maybe I was just lucky, I think it was within a few hours of requesting.


    Regards,

    I felt suse-studio is like assembling 'patterns' in yast.If portions of a pattern conflict with portions of another pattern,what will happen?
    Like,a KDE desktop will give me amarok,but to be able to play mp3,I need uncrippled amarok,which may be in a different pattern.These things are anyway difficult to automate.
    I have used suse-studio and my impressions are superficial at best at this stage.Above may be possible.

    Hi
    You can add repositories or upload your own rpms to overcome this.

    [QUOTE=malcolmlewis;2083210]Hi

    When I added,I was hit with incompatibility problem.Hopefully what can go in a Desktop installation should also go in Appliance creation.Thanks.
