Thread: issue with opensuse make computer useless

    @LMH1:

    I'm far from an expert in OpenSUSE, but I don't believe you can go from TW to 15.2 by "downgrading" . . . it's sort of two different systems.

    I mentioned the SuperGrub2 disk idea in a previous post, did you try to boot your install using SG2? Yet???

    I had this recent zypper dup -l "break grub" in both my TW and my 15.3 installs in two computers, booting to nothing but white; I can use the SG2 disk to boot into any of my linux installs.

    Also, in "multi-boot" installs, like I have OSX mixed in with various linux systems, the OSX install goes in first, then the linux . . . otherwise, yes, OSX will break the grub bootloader. So if you put a Windows in after linux that might be a problem?

    Hi
    I've tested winX install after openSUSE, works fine use the custom install to select the partition allocated (I always preconfigure the disk before any install....)

    OK, that's good to know, the question is whether that addresses any of the OP's issues . . . hard to discern from the posts what he has done in his install process and how that might be effecting his install. I am assuming that he has hit the same problem I did with the zypper dup -l upgrade breaking the bootloader in some way . . . .

    Without criticism: the English is making this hard for me to follow. But I keep coming back to one thing: 5,400 files for install? I had to re-install a damaged system last week with a newly downloaded iso. I don't remember the exact count, but there was nowhere near 5,400 files. Trying hard to remember, I think there were less than 3,000 files. If that is correct, the total could have been 2,700 files; half the number the OP mentions. Is some kind of double install going on? Is the iso the source of the problem? It seems the OP TRIED to check the integrity of the download but I don't know what the result was.

    @Prexy:

    Valid points . . . OP doesn't exactly seem to be responding to posted suggestions in his thread . . . . On the "5400" packages, I might agree with you that there might have been some issue with the .iso, because my understanding was that it didn't pass the check-sum, which he appeared to be complaining about the quality of the download in comparison to his seems to be fairly competent use of ubuntu . . . . But, as of late TW has been having what I would call "massive" zypper dup updates as of late, I have the numbers written down somewhere, but a couple in close succession in the 1500 package arena, and then a couple of 900, then this recent one a few days ago of something like "746" . . . ??? So, finding that the system would have 5400 packages wouldn't surprise me too much. With so many packages being upgraded at one time it's bound to break something, which recently each time I run a zypper there have been some "issues" and then with the last I believe I hit what this OP is experiencing . . . which I feel his "frustration" in similar fashion. I thought the point of "rolling" distro was regular small number of updates, rather than larger or massive "full-upgrades" when jumping from release distro to release distro . . . ????

    Depends on a used Linux.
    openSUSE Leap 15.2 is using FAT16 by default for ESP, Windows wants FAT32:

    https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1177358
    https://bugzilla.suse.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1170625

    For use openSUSE + Win you have to format ESP with FAT32 with the 1st installation and avoid formatting it with next ones.

    At present, you are still using a development version of Leap 15.3. The update repo is empty (or nearly empty).

    Official release is due in early June, but perhaps a few days later than expected. Once we get to final release, you should use:
    Code:
    zypper dup
    from a root command line to synchronize with the repos. And the update repo will then begin to have updates.
