network install

Is it possible to do an network install over a wireless network (WPA) ???

Greetings LoucheWidlin


Yes it is.

I guess your main concern is having Open Suse detect your target system wireless nic at the time of installation.

If your nic is supported, the installation procedure is not much more different than that via wires. You will have to configure your network settings (ip address, gateway, subnet mask, name servers, etc) together with the WPA specific ones.

Find here if your wireless nic is supported.

Wireless network card - openSUSE
