I just want a live installation disk

I’ve been trying to figure out how to create a standart live image from suse studio but it was confusing. There shouldn’t have be an obligation to not use live disks. I couldn’t figure out what packages do I need to add. Even gcc wasn’t included to standart 42.1 GNOME live disk by default. Should I include this yast package ? Am I doing it right ? Ok, you may be telling why don’t you test it online ? Because testing link requires flash which is known as a security risk. Ok, there may be other people’s “clones” out there in suse gallery. But really, who can give me a guarantee it will work or it’s not a virus ? If I remember correctly we could upload data to server while building our own distro including RPM packages, right ? I saw countless example of that.


I’ve trusted openSUSE, because it’s backed with a trust worthy, good company. Novell. If something happens I know who to ask help from. Why isn’t there an “official” live disk like any other distro ? People keep sharing their own live disks for 42.1. But as I said, how can I know their intention. Are they trying to help me, or what ? My bank pass, education passes, social network passes, everything about me is in my computer. It should be safe or it could be problem.

I can’t install it from network installation because it’s painful with my country’s poor internet connection speed. Full installation disks ? I’ve got a netbook without dvd rom and my desktop’s dvd rom doesn’t work. I install my operating systems from USB. And live disk has another advantage, you will see what’s working or what’s not. When I try to install linux on a computer, I like to try a live disk first. Live disk has several advantages. How can I get one safely ?

Although I’ve never heard this described,
Why not start with the standard DVD release,
Go to where you select “online sources” and set those to <only> point to online sources,
And then remove the on-disk repo source?

Seems to me you’d be left with the full install flow as created and maintained by SUSE, including the multitude of configuration options from disk layouts to time zones to Desktop choice to install packages and more…
