Is 11.1 Installation Guide Identical For 11.2 ?

openSUSE Forums > New User How To/FAQ (read only)
is a treasure of information and external references.
It tells us how to get ready to install and how to
install openSUSE-11.1
Thanks from all of us slow learners to oldcpu for a
job well done.
Are there any significant changes to this material
which we'll need to know to prepare to install
openSUSE-11.2 ?

I've started updating the Installation stickie for 11.2, dividing it
into two parts (to make my work easier next time for 11.3, 12.0 ... etc
... ) :
- generic: 'NEW Users - openSuse Pre-install (general) – PLEASE
  READ - openSUSE Forums' (
- 11.2 specific: 'NEW Users - Suse-11.2 Pre-installation –
  PLEASE READ - openSUSE Forums' (
  ... as you can see the 11.2 specific is still being populated, with old
11.1 links.

A big change (for some of us) in the installation is there is no longer
an option for the KDE3 desktop.

For more control over the installation, I still recommend users
deselect "Use Automatic Configuration", although if one has a VERY basic
PC setup on the hard drive, that is not necessary.

There is now an option (much easier than under 11.1) for installation
from USB key (although I find installation from DVD is quicker).

Note the recommendation for backups (not just data, but also selected
configuration files) when going from one openSUSE version to another:

Possibly the biggest (and first) changes you may note is the default
file system format is now ext4 and not ext3.  Also, there is no longer
the need for an /etc/X11/xorg.conf file for most users, and hence that
file will not be evident after an install.  I'm still trying to wrap my
head around what that means, in terms of dual head/clone operation with
an external projector (ie does it mean use of xrandr with openGL
drivers, and use of aticonfig for ATI proprietary graphic drivers)?

We are a support forum, not a developers forum, so we tend to lag a bit
in our advice when a new openSUSE version "hits the street".

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, dvd. 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 (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. What gives? --...

11.2 install failure but 11.1 to 11.2 upgrade (partial) success
Machine is basically an ASUS mother board with an AMD64 Athlon x2 processor and Nvidia hardware RAID discs mirroring each other. It has been used as a server for about four years under various incantations of openSUSE. After a major software corruption a couple of days ago, I decided to install 11.2 from an iso image downloaded, MD5 check-summed OK. The DVD was burnt on an iMac at the lowest speed (x8) and verified correctly. Installation proceeded as expected from partitioning to the installation of the GRUB loader - which failed - but only with a warning. Of course any attempt...

Installed 11.1, got 11.2
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 ...

Help with Grub booting 11.1 after installing 11.4
AMD 64bit OpenSuse 11.4 My installation on 11.4 went onto its own partition (s) - one for root fs and another for /home. I have encountered intermittent lockups of OpenSuse 11.4 and wish to use my old system as a backup until I can sort this out. Grub is only offering to boot the new system and Failsafe. My other installation does not appear in the menu. Any ideas on how to diagnose this ? I have several hard drives on the system with older versions of OpenSuse. The 11.1 release works ok and I would like to boot back into it. -- cabernet ----------------------------...

11.1 to 11.2
Hi, I am wondering if I should install a new openSuse 11.2 or if I should make an Update-Installation from DVD ('see openSUSE 11.2 Installation Quick Start' ( Installation Mode: Select Mode - New Installation / Update / [...]) or an Update Installation via Yast. Now I am using openSuse 11.1 and Gnome 2.24.1 (mostly, 1 account is using KDE) and Kernel Linux "/home" is on an separated partition (as part of an extended partition).

I first tried this with the version 11.0 and then again with 11.1 with no difference. I boot from the liveCD, everything looks good and then the entire screen goes blank and stays blank. I suspect this happens when it attempts to switch to the graphical video mode. The quick hardware specs are: * New blank SATA HDD is installed. * I'm booting from the LiveCD * Dell Dimension 8400 with 4-Gigs RAM * Video card is a NVidia 9500GT with dual DVI outputs. This setup works perfect with WinXP-Pro and with Ubuntu 8.04. But with OpenSuse (and Fedora 10.0) it gets to a certain poin...

Upgrade Install From 11 to 11.1
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...
