Thread: Manual installation

  1. #1

    Default Manual installation

    Hi everybody.
    I love OpenSuSE and I would learn it more deep.
    As well as other distribution like Slackware or Archlinux, I would like install OS in manual mode i.e. make manual partition, manual format them, manual mount them, setup locale etc.
    In other word I would disable yast installation method.
    There are any way or/and any maual on the web to do this?
    Thanks in advance

    The YaST install invoked by the openSUSE Install allows you to decline defaults and create your own layout, specify your own other options.

    In the installer, when at the "Disk layout proposal" screen, click the "Expert Partitioner" button and you should be able to do whatever you want with your disks.

    yes and no :-(

    I know no specific openSUSE documentation about this, openSUSE being
    built to be friendly, not specifically for hackers :-(

    so you can begin with LSF

    http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/

    For openSUSE, what you can do is prepare the disk with any method (you
    can make partitions with any tool, including rescue disk), and install
    *minimal install* (in yast, it's in "other" deskstop choice).

    It's pretty minimal, indeed, but fully working

    then you can build with zypper or rpm (or ncurse yast)

    The openSUSE installer can be run in non-graphical mode, ie ncurses.

    In other words, the "graphical" nature is implemented entirely in text.
