Inspiron 1000 install problem (11.1, 11.2, net install, dvd install)
Ok, I have a plain jane Inspiron 1000, 2ghz celeron, 256m ram, 40gig hd,
I burned 11.2 to dvd, 11.1 to dvd, tried installing both. Both get the
dreaded "cannot create repository" (i'm paraphrasing). No problem, I
download and burn 11.1, 11.2 net install's, checksums check out ok. I
go through the first part where it downloads stuff from
download.opensuse.com (or something similiar), then it fails again, not
able to install.
I get no message on the net installs. Just fails real quick with a red
box. I tried a text install, fails.
--...Simplest way to install 11.2 from USB-stick??
OK, so here we go again, a netbook have no DVD-drive so there is need
for usb-stick if U dont have a working network and other connected
machine with the iso-file for 11.2, or a quick reliable
internetconnection and lot of time.
So, I found the new article about live-usb here:
'Live USB stick - openSUSE'
Seems like a lot of difficult things are taken away wich is good for us
Have been running SUSE now since 11.0 and anyway I find these
instructions quite complicated, Im sorry.
My first question is:
...Install 11.1RC1 messed up 11.0 install -- help
I loaded opensuse 11.1 RC1 live CD last night to see how it worked. I
got stuck configuring the network card. It seemed that the network
switch was off and wouldn't turn on so that even though the firmware was
installed I couldn't get past that issue. So I decided to go ahead and
install a second copy of opensuse on the machine, so that I would be
about to reconfigure and reboot.
I have a copy of opensuse 11.0. I configured 2 new partitions 3.75GB
for the root, 256MB for /var. I configured it to use the existing 1GB
swap, the existing 1GB /temp, and the existing 1GB ...Help Please, how do I reinstall gnome/ati drivers from install dvd on an installed 11.2 sys?
Deleted my ati drivers accidently during a botched upgrade. Have been
trying to fix the problem from things I read on here, made a thread but
can't get online to execute it.Found my install dvd tried running repair
and in the process deleted my windows partition(anyway to get that
back?) and still no previous ati drivers or gnome installed.
So my question is how do I install ati drivers from the dvd and how do
I install gnome or kde from install dvd?

...help to install Xampp for Linux (Lampp) on a USB memory stick
hello dear community, good evening!
Hi, I need some help to install Xampp for Linux (Lampp) on a USB memory
I did it without any problem with the Windows version (just unzip Xampp
on the key and run the setup...) but with my Linux OS OpenSuse 11.4 I
succeed to have Lampp working only if I install it on my /opt directory
(as it is explained in the official installation guide).
I suppose it is just a problem of permissions, but I have no idea about
how I'd have to un-tar and install the files in the right way. Or the

I installed KDE from a CD. Then decided I wanted to have Gnome has an
option. I installed "gnome-desktop" via software manager (as per some
other instructions on the forum) but I still have no option to choose
Gnome when logging in.
What all do I choose to get the complete Gnome environment? Or is it
better (& easier?) to reinstall with a DVD?
Can we assume you checked the Session option at the bottom right of the
login screen and did not find Gnome as a sele...Installed from USB Stick / Updates ask for install media
