Thread: LEAP 15 - Packages not included with ISO??

    Default LEAP 15 - Packages not included with ISO??

    Hi Folks,
    I downloaded LEAP 15 ISO for a friend without high speed internet. Really didn't pay attention to the ISO size. The WEB page shows 4.7 GB, but the actual size was only 3.7 GB. He could not find most of the packages that he needed. What is going on?? Am I missing something??

    The ISO is 3.6 GB and so not all packages are included.

    That is normal.

    It is indeed ~3.6 and even when it would be the maximum storable on a DVD, not all software would fit on it, but it is enough for a good functioning openSUSE (and you add individual packages later when needed.

    As long as the checksum is OK, it i fine.

    I was told that there are absolutely no development packages at all (no gcc, no GTK, no kernel source, etc.). There is also no ndiswrapper, so he can't do any wireless internet with it.

    I know what size the ISO is. The web page (https://software.opensuse.org/distributions/leap) says: x86_64 DVD Image (4.7GB). So that still does not help me get what is needed. They were all included under LEAP 14. We have been doing this process for a long time.

    As there never was a LEAP 14, I assume there is some confusion here.

    There may indeed be no development patterns on the ISO. And there are certainly no source RPMs. They are not seen as of imminent importance for most users.
    When you want to offer your superior internet speed to your friend, you can of course download the packages and create a local repository from them. Move that repo (maybe on a DVD) to your friends system.

    And about ndiswrapper. I know what it is, but I have not seen that mentioned for years already here in the forums. A very useful product it was during it's time, I assume that today most wifi hardware is supported. But we have a sub-forum for that where you can see what information is required so that people here will be able to help with that.

    You can copy all needed rpms to a local directory and enable this local directory in Yast----Repositories.

    And if there are in future newer packages, copy them to the local directory and you will get them as Updates.

    Unless you really do want to download everything beforehand and set up your own private repos, you don't have to.

    So, for instance during installation,
    By default you only have 3 Desktops to choose from... KDE, Gnome and XFCE... plus an option without a Desktop and another option to deploy on a read-only root file system (Transaction Server).
    If you'd like to install a different Desktop, you should "Enable Online Sources" during your install which will provide access to a much larger selection of packages including various Desktops like LXCE, LXQt, Enlightenment, Mate, Cinnamon, etc.

    And, that is without installing repos specific to various technologies...

    This applies whether you install using the DVD or the NET iso...
    So, don't feel that your installation is restricted to what you have on your DVD.

    Are you aware of the fact that the OP is trying to download as much as possible on his system and to put that on a medium in order to install on a friend's system which has a slow internet connection.

    Thus I assume that advising him to download less to a medium, but to download more during installation is contrary to his whish.
