Need help downloading openSUSE? Or wanting more information about the download of openSUSE?

Before you download

Before downloading your version of openSUSE there are a few things you should consider.

System Requirements

Make sure you meet the system requirements. openSUSE 10.3. supports most PC hardware components. The following requirements should be met to ensure smooth operation of openSUSE 10.3:

  • Processor: Intel Pentium 1-4 or xeon; AMD Duron, Athlon, Athlon XP, Athlon MP, Athlon 64 and Sempron
  • Main memory: At least 256 MB, 512 MB recommended
  • Hard disk: At least 500 MB (for minimal system); 3 GB recommended for standard system
  • Sound and graphics cards: Supports most modern sound and graphics cards

Verify That You Have Enough Disk Space

  • When delivered as 1 CD, openSUSE requires one download of approximately 700 MB.
  • When delivered as a single DVD ISO, openSUSE requires one download of 4.7 GB (see footnote 1)

Choose the Version of openSUSE

You can choose to download and install either the released version or the development build of openSUSE. Mostly you will want the released version - the development version is only for people who wish to participate in testing the upcoming release.

You can choose to download one CD ISO image, or a single DVD ISO image. For an installation with a standard package selection for GNOME or KDE in English only, you only need the one CD.

If you download the 1 CD with one desktop, and you have an active Internet connection at the time of installation, you can download and install additional applications during the installation

If you would like both KDE and GNOME, as well as a very wide selection of software,in many languages, you may instead download the 1 DVD.

You should also choose the architecture. Do you want to install on standard 32-bit (x86) computer or do you have an 64-bit (x86_64) computer and if so, do you want to install the 64-bit version. You can install the x86 version on a x86_64 machine, which in some cases will save you a little trouble. There's also a version available for computers with a PPC processor - mainly pre-2006 Macs.

Download ISO Images

Downloading large ISOs can be a little troublesome here are a few pointers.

It is recommended to use a download manager instead of the download facility of your web browser - or to use bittorent - as this reduces the risk of a faulty download considerably

The following table shows estimates of how long the download process takes at various connection speeds:

1 CD ISO (700 MB) 1 DVD ISO (4.7 GB)
56 KBit 28 hours 187 hours
64 KBit (ISDN) 25 hours 164 hours
1024 KBit (Broadband) 1.5 hours 11 hours
2048 KBit (Broadband) 45 minutes 5.5 hours
8192 KBit (Broadband) 12 minutes 1.5 hours
24 MBit (ADSL2) 4 minutes 28 minutes
100 MBit (Fibre) 1 minute 7 minutes

Downloading openSUSE

The place to download openSUSE, including the latest version, is at the openSUSE Download page.

Downloading via HTTP

You could download the openSUSE disk images like you would download a normal file, and just click on the link on the Download page in your web browser, however it's strongly recommended that you use a proper download manager to reduce the risk of corrupted data when doing such a large download.

Downloading with BitTorrent

BitTorrent downloads have several benefits, the clients protect against data corruption and you help relieving the load on the servers by participating in the upload - if enough people participate it will also be faster than the centralized servers - for everybody.

The workflow is simple, install a client program such as Ktorrent (Linux only) or Azureus (Linux, Windows, Mac). Then download the *.torrent file from the Download page and open it with the client, which will soon start downloading.


Metalinks are an XML format, used by download managers, that contain the mirror and P2P locations of a file along with checksums. Metalink clients offer download resuming, downloading from multiple sources (both mirrors and P2P) simultaneously, automatic checksum verification, and automatic error repair (depending on client used), among other features. Hence using metalinks can deliver very fast download speeds.

aria2 (Guru package here) is the recommended Unix command line client, while wxDownload Fast (All platforms) has a GUI. Speed Download is available for Mac OS, Orbit Downloader and GetRight on Windows. There are other clients available for Mac OS, Windows, and Unix.

See Metalinks for usage and more information.

Downloading from FTP Servers

It's reccommended you download openSUSE from the Download page. This is primarily for advanced users.

First choose a mirror site near your location. Make sure the mirror site hosts the version of the product you want for the type of media you prefer.

Warning Not all Windows FTP Clients are able to download files bigger than 2 GB. To download a DVD ISO image on a windows machine, make sure that you use ntfs for your filesystem. A ftp client that works with images of this size is for example ncftp.

If you find an ISO location like<release>/inst-source/boot/boot.iso, you can get this image either by using your browser, or with the commands


After an interruption, you can continue the download by adding -c to the wget parameters:

wget -c<release>/inst-source/boot/boot.iso

When the download is finished, you will find a file named boot.iso in your current directory. This file can be burned to a CD with k3b. Before doing that, you should check the file for errors. In the above example, a file named MD5SUMS may be available. This file contains hashes for each ISO image that is available from that download location. The relevant line for the above image would look like the following:

8abac6680ecc152f103006b02f9ff67f  boot.iso

To be sure that the FTP transfer did not contain any errors, you should create this number for your own ISO image. A free md5sum checker for several operating systems can be found at On Linux, run the command:

md5sum boot.iso

If there is any difference between the output of the md5sum command and the above number, the download is broken and should be repeated.

If you are using Linux as OS, you may also repair the ISO file with the command rsync. To do that, choose a mirror that supports this protocol and enter the following:

rsync rsync://<name-of-mirror>/<opensuse-directory>/ 

This will show the content of the directory on the server. By appending the names of the subdirectories to the command, you can get to the directory where the ISO is located on the remote computer. Then

touch <path-to-your-local-ISO-file>
rsync -Pvz rsync://<name-of-mirror>/<opensuse-directory>/<path-to-iso>/<name-of-ISO>

will repair the file, only downloading the needed data to correct it. For further information please refer to the manpage of rsync, by entering (in a shell):

man rsync


Before you burn your CD/DVD images, you should check the files for errors. A file named MD5SUMS is available. This file contains hashes for each ISO image that is available from that download location. The relevant line would look like the following:

8abac6680ecc152f103006b02f9ff67f  some.iso

To be sure that download did not contain any errors, you should create this number for your own ISO image. On Linux, run the command:

md5sum some.iso

If there is any difference between the output of the md5sum command and the above number, the download is broken and should be repeated.

To verify all the checksums automatically, and have your system do the verification, type:

md5sum -c MD5SUMS

Md5sum on Windows

Microsoft Windows doesn't include a program for calculating md5sums but a free md5sum checker for several operating systems can be found at

Burn the ISO Image(s)

Linux users

After successfully downloading the ISO image(s), use the burning application of your choice to burn the ISO file(s) to a blank CD or a blank DVD. On systems running SUSE Linux, use the K3B program to burn the discs. Select the option that allows burning a CD or DVD image and/or a ISO9660 file system. Do not burn the ISO image(s) the same way as you would burn files.

From the command line you can use the program cdrecord.

cdrecord dev=/dev/cdrecorder speed=44 driveropts=burnproof -eject -v isofile

Microsoft Windows users

Windows XP can't burn ISO images without third party software. The unauthorized ISO Recorder Power Toy can add this capability to Windows XP. For users coming from any version of Microsoft Windows, there exists a number of third party CD-burner applications capable of burning ISO images, usually a burning program for MS Windows is provided with the drive - use your favourite search engine to find them. A good freeware software is Cd Burner XP. Be sure when you burn your iso image that you burn it "disc-at-once" vs. "track-at-once". Some software (Nero) defaults to "track-at-once".

Using Mac OS X 10.3 and above

In the Finder, open the Go menu and select Utilities. In the Utilities folder you will find an application called Disk Utility. Open it, then drag and drop the downloaded ISO image in to the left hand sidebar. Select the image, click Burn and insert your CD/DVD. For more information check Apple's support page on the subject.


Delta ISOs allow you to download a small file instead of the complete ISO if you have the previous ISO. This is primarily used by people testing the Development version of openSUSE. The deltaiso contains the differences between the old iso and the new one. Applying the deltaiso to the old iso will give you the new iso. To use this feature, you need the package deltarpm that is installed by default. The syntax for applydeltaiso is:

applydeltaiso old delta new

For example:

applydeltaiso SUSE-10.0-CD-OSS-i386-Beta1-CD1.iso \

If you deleted the ISOs of the previous beta, don't worry. applydeltaiso can also work with the CDs in your CD-ROM drive. For example, if you have the SUSE 10.0-i386 Beta 1 CD 1 in your CD-ROM drive (/dev/hdc), use this command:

applydeltaiso /dev/hdc \

Check the MD5SUMS afterwards as described in Checksums. The process of applying the Delta ISO takes quite some time and needs the disk space to unpack all ISO images.

The program applydeltaiso may take a rather long time to run. On some systems it takes more than 30 minutes per CD, in which case the download of a full length iso-image might be faster!

Troubleshooting Downloads

Downloading large files such as ISO images is sometimes difficult. Here are some tips for avoiding the most common issues:

  • A 'not-enough-space' error may occur if the DVD ISO is being downloaded to a FAT32 filesystem, despite the fact that your drive may say you have enough space. This filesystem has a file size limit of 2 GB, and therefore the DVD ISO (4.7GB) will not fit. To resolve this, download the CD ISOs or download to another drive.
  • Consider using BitTorrent instead of FTP. Sometimes BitTorrent downloads achieve better performance rates than FTP downloads.
  • We strongly suggest using a download manager or an FTP client that supports resume. If download problems occur, the resume function allows you to continue a download made earlier rather than having to start over again. Many download managers also now support checksum verification, which is recommended. Choose a download manager with the features you need from this comprehensive list.
  • Some proxies are configured not to allow FTP access. If you are using a proxy, download from an HTTP mirror site instead.
  • When downloading the DVD ISO, make sure that your proxy and your download client support files larger than 2 GB. If the download stops prematurely close to that size, your client most probably does not support large files. If you are using Linux, you can use Konqueror (KDE browser), curl, or lftp (lukemftp). On MacOS, Safari and the default ftp-client should work. If you are using Windows, FileZilla is worth a try.
