I’m new here, an Ubuntu user who would try Opensuse for a while. That is if I’m able to launch the thing !
I’d like to create a Live Usb Stick to test it and install it if I like it but it doesn’t seem to work.
I tried the website method, using “Win32DiskImager.exe” but the program doesn’t work for me (WinXP) : it looks like it’s writing but when the “Done” message is prompted, I’m unable to access the usb key, Windows says it’s not formatted. That doesn’t look right…
I tried with LinuxLive Usb Creator but the boot process fails and Universal-Usb-Installer doesn’t offer an Opensuse option.
Is there another way to install the distribution on an USB stick ? I could still try through Ubuntu but that would be quite surrealistic.
If not, I’m afraid I’ll have to pass…:\
Well, as I said, the webpage tutorial didn’t help. There are newbies that actually do their homework you know (reqding tutorials, searching the board, etc.)…
As for Unetbootin, thanks for the great program, but it doesn’t work either. It does create an Usb-key but it won’t load. Same boot error than Linuxlive…
I guess, I’ll stick with Ubuntu.lol!
I think it’s really a widespread problem because I tried the instructions on the website by using unetbootin and Win32DiskImager and other tools on the internet as well. I think there are some bugs in unetbootin and Win32DiskImager. I haven’t tried the Mandriva’s seed tool. I would let you guys know if it worked.
Update: I tired Mandriva’s seed tool and it doesn’t work because it said the iso file for opensuse isn’t hybrid; And it also couldn’t file a USB drive. It’s not working!
