    Default install from a CD

    I have around a three or four old machines around the house that I would like to install opensuse on. The only problem is they only have cdrom. Can opensuse installation iso still be found for cdrom.

    Hi
    A net install with a local or remote server? Use the live CD for 13.2 it has an installer. Create a JeOS image on SUSE Studio https://susestudio.com or permutations of up to 700MB.

    do you have a bootable usb port? You can install the live image (or the full iso) from a usb stick.

    Hi
    As in a 13.2 live installer on CD? Or SUSE Studio?

    I've found that most older PC's can boot from usb it's usually a usb disk option
    anyhow the live kde 13.2 iso 857M fits on those non standard cd's
    http://download.opensuse.org/distrib...-Live-i686.iso
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CD-ROM#Capacity
    a long time ago I used a couple of those 900M cd's they are a bit more expensive but when there is no other option go to the computer store (or online) and buy one (it depends where you live)
    just don't forget to burn it as an image not data so it boots

    edit
    all those non-standard CD's need to be burned in overburned and finalized

    or do as gogalthorp said and use the network installer
    I do believe the net installer allows you to install from a local folder or repository (if you want to save on bandwidth) copy the dvd installer content to a fat or ext file system and in the net installer select those files

    Actually, there's currently an issue with the 13.2 download page: <https://software.opensuse.org/132/en>
    • The Network Installation (fits on a CD-ROM) is missing . . .


    I'll raise a bug report for you.
