Getting opensue 11.0 on DVD

Hey,
I’ve downloaded the Installation DVD (4.3 GB) iso file from Software.openSUSE.org
I try to burn it with every Nero and even mith Burnatonce on DVD of 4.7 GB but
everytime I get the error that the dat support is not the rigth one, but it is not possible to burn it on CD of 700 MB, rigth ?

Do I have to burn it on double density DVD of 8.5 GB, what Im i doing wrong ?
NB: I use windows xp pro SP2 and burn the iso-file as an image.
Thanks for your help

Hi,
Did you try to run a checksum on downloaded image?

I’ve burned it on a regular DVD so that shouldn’t be a problem. You
definitely can’t squeeze 4.7 GB into 700 MB and shouldn’t need a special
dual-layer DVD or anything. Which specific error are you getting back?
Can you burn a ny other ISO? I would guess this is a Nero issue…
perhaps try another system with nero or some other burner if you know
this version will burn an ISO.

Good luck.

thanks all of you for your answer.

I used Nero6 and burnatone but still not possible to install.

I have read some info and even download
md5summer but i dont know how to use.

I run the md5summer program on the opensuse 11.0 iso file I get as result a file about 1 ko.

What is the meaning?

I really want to get opensuse install as dual boot with my win xp pro sp2

thanks for you help.

download this
Download ImgBurn 2.4.2.0 - FileHippo.com

install it

try burning your dvd

the size of openSUSE-11.0-DVD-x86_64.iso is:2 187 053 Kb
provided information from md5summeris:2 187 052,01 Kb

Is it mean that I miss some files or not ?

You need to learn how to do md5sum
maybe this will help
Checksum in Windows

The size of iso file reported by windows xp should be: 4.28 GB (4,602,126,336 bytes).
I think your download is somehow corrupt.
If you used torrent - than go back to original torrent in your client and force a check - it will find the non downloaded pieces and it will complete the download.
If you used http or ftp - please check your browser or your ftp client.
Mainly please use this web page to get all info you need to successfully complete your download.
Download Help - openSUSE
I hope this helps!

Thanks kanadian for your help.
I decide to install the opensuse live CD until I will find the solution.
But knowing that the live CD is only 644 MB and the DVD is 4.3 GB, I’m confident I miss more than 70% of the opensuse system.

What is the difference using the live CD and DVD to install opensuse 11.0 ?
IS my installation complete with the live CD ?
can I add some file to my installation, in order to get it completed ?

Thanx,

The cd install is minimal compared to the dvd. You didn’t say if your were using Gnome or KDE.
But with the dvd you have more features as regards repair/recovery - which is not there on the CD. The CD is more for testing. Personally I would not do an install from a CD. But it will work fine.

Just go to Yast - Repositories and make sure you have:
oss
non-oss
updates
packman

Main OS Repo’s and Updates

OSS:
Index of /distribution/11.0/repo/oss

Non OSS:
Index of /distribution/11.0/repo/non-oss

Updates:
Index of /update/11.0

Packman:
Index of /pub/linux/misc/packman/suse/11.0

I would add, that just temporarily you need the VLC repo too
Index of /pub/vlc/SuSE/11.0/
but only add libdvdcss - then disable it

If you want the latest features from either kde3 or gnome use their build service repo’s

KDE
Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE3/openSUSE_11.0

Gnome
Index of /repositories/GNOME:/STABLE/openSUSE_11.0

*If you are using kde4 - be warned you should have kde3 installed too

I’ve tried to install from DVD but no way, it’s the reason I use the CD.

I think the iso file I downloaded is corrupt or my burning software is not ok, I really don’t know.

Thanks for your explanation caf4929,
I’m using KDE, but I don’t if it is better than GNOME ?

Thanks

when you boot from the dvd there is a section called ‘media check’
that will check if the dvd you have burned is OK

but if you have it installed from the cd - fine
use the repo’s i gave you
then Yast - Software Management to add packages and do updates

Also,
The fact that the dvd iso image size is 2 187 053 KB ~ 2GB is leading me to idea that maybe the partition where you saved the file is FAT or FAT 32 and not NTFS (this one is able to support larger files than 4 GB). If this is teh acse than you can use convert command in windows to convert the FAT 32 to NTFS. Is easy and I did it many times. The nice fact is that is not destroying the data on partition but a backup is wisely advised to be taken.
