SuSE on an Intel Mac Mini

Can someone suggest how to install SuSe Linux an an Intel Mac Mini, without bootcamp if possible? I am familiar with installation of dual boot Win/Lin system on a PC. But I am a newbie with macs. Thank you for the help/advice.

Maybe this will help you, take a look to this link and follow the Basic instructions.

By the way, you will get a little problem with installing GRUB in openSUSE installation

I hope that will help you :slight_smile:

Thank you for the response. It worked fine, for me. I am able to boot into OS X or Linux from refit menu.

Why is it that we can have only four partitions? At the moment, I have no swap partition, for Linux(one partition is reserved for win, although I have to figure out how I can install win into the system. Have you tried this as well?).

Of course, you need to have remaining free space to create more partitions…
but yes, it’s possible to have many more partitions.

You’ll need to use one of the GUI based disk partitioners… You can use the
one built into Yast…

Start the YaST application (need root’s password)
-> System
-> Partitioner

You’ll see a warning message, click it if you’re brave…

Click on ‘Create’, to make a new partition. The program will guide you
through much of the process.

====================

Can be done through OS X too, under “Drive Utility” or something like that.

====================

BE CAREFUL!!
