I had download the iso of Open SUSE 11.2, 11.3 and 11.4 and confirmed
with the MD5 code. Then, I burned them using the lowest speed which the
system supported. But the error message "Make sure that CD number 1 is

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.

It hasn't been long since I'm on version 11 (because it took long to fix
some major issues I had with) and now that version 11.1 is out, I really
don't want to do a full install.
Good thing I noticed there is an 'upgrade' option on the install DVD.
I'm not sure what will happen though, so I had a few questions. If you
know the answer to any number of these, please reply:
1 - What's being upgraded?
2 - Will all the packages I have installed be upgraded?
3 - Is it a side-by-side install, keep the old and get the new?
4 - What about the ones I did NOT in...Open Suse 11.1 - Fligthgear 1.9.1

This is more an annoyance and wanting to learn from my mistake that a
"production problem" per se. 2 or 3 weeks ago I downloaded and burned
the openSuSE 11.1 32 bit x86 iso. Last night I installed it; a fresh
install on a machine that had formerly been running openSuSE 9.x or
10.x. During installation I cherry picked what apps & services I
wanted... the machine is to be a firewall with minimal services running.
I was surprised when the installation completed to see it's running
11.2, Milestone 4.
I'm not a guru, but I've installed openSuSE on a number of ...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 ...Is 11.1 Installation Guide Identical For 11.2 ?

...Compiling GTK+ 1.2 on suse 11.3 x64 in order to install xmms 1
I Currently have the problem of not being able to install xmms on suse
11.3, apparently since there's no way to install it from the packman
repos because xmms claims it's missing glib 1.22 -oh yeah that one. But
since it worked like a charm on 11.2 i'm just wondering if the glib,
gtk, and gdk rpms will be present in the future or have i just missed
something. I've tried to compile gtk 1.2 and above on 11.3 but since it
is a 64bit system it do not comply with my request.

both do not show it as installed. I am gussing that it was part of the
