I need CDs instead of DVD, howto?


Even though the openSUSE website speaks of CDs/DVD when talking about installing, I can only find the DVD to download. My second hand server does not do DVDs for installs but insists on CDs.

Does anyone know where i can find the link to the CDs or maybe how to “split” the DVD? I really do need the iso’s.

Thank you for your help.

The LiveCDs are installable, you could start with one of those (or a
network install CD) and do the installation of a network source rather
than a DVD.

You need to download a Live CD for either KDE or GNOME. Install from the Live CD which can then download additional packages as long as you have an active Internet connection recognized by the installation program.


Thank You,

Thank you both for your answer. I 'll give it try.

The other way is to download the dvd iso and use the network boot cd to install from hard disk.ust make sure you have copied the dvd to an accessible partition on the hard drive - maybe create a small partition and copy the dvd into it. You then point the installer to this partition.
Another way with the net install is to put the dvd into a server/pc that will give either ftp or http access.
