SDB:Installing SUSE LINUX for AMD64 on a System without DVD Drive

Şuraya atla: kullan, ara

Version: 9.2


You would like to install the AMD64 version of SUSE LINUX, which is only available on DVD.
However, your system only has a CD drive.


You need a further machine with a DVD drive which can be accessed over the network.

Download the file SUSE-Linux-9.2-mini-installation.iso from our FTP server and burn it to a bootable CD.

Alternatively, you can copy all data except for the suse directory from the DVD to a directory on the hard disk, change to this directory, and burn a CD with the following command (replace dev=/dev/hdX and speed=Y with suitable values):

 mkisofs -J -r -l -no-emul-boot -b boot/loader/isolinux.bin -c
boot/loader/ -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table . | cdrecord -v
gracetime=2 dev=/dev/hdX speed=Y -dao driveropts=burnfree

The idea for this procedure comes from Christian Küblbeck.

After booting from the CD, press F3 to select the installation source (FTP, http, NFS) on the remote host on which the DVD is mounted and start the installation. <keyword>amd64,installation,dvd,cd</keyword>
