DVD Install not different from LiveCD install?

I installed openSUSE once from the Live CD and couldn't do it and went
back to Ubuntu. Then my friend who uses SUSE came and said that SUSE
actually comes on a DVD and is loaded with stuff.
I got the DVD (7h+ to download) and then I installed and the only
difference is the install and options on installing KDE4, or GNOME, or
KDE3. Should I re-install (don't have any data on here yet so it's safe)
and choose a lot more software and load it? Otherwise the extra DVD
download I could call a waste.

Get it on Google Play
Get it on Apple App Store

It's different in a few ways:

1. You don't have to boot to a Live system first, you can install
straight away. Some people have problems with getting the Live system
running, or don't have enough RAM. On the other hand the LiveCD allows
to see if it has a chance of working.

2. It has more software, as you have noted.

If you really want to reduce the download you could even do an over the
Internet install from the NET CD, which only fetches what you want to
install. But some of us like having a bootable CD or DVD around in case
something needs to be repaired or more packages installed. So it's up to
you whether you want to spend the time downloading.

Installing ardour and installing in general...
I want to try out ardour, as I'm trying to turn my laptop into a fully functional music studio, using opensource software. Ardour wants to downgrade a LOT of things on my computer, most of which I don't know what is.Some of it I do know. Fx it wants to downgrade the Compiz interface or something like that. It also changes other things, fx media libraries. I can make do without Compiz. Thats ok. But I'd be very sad if Songbird stops working or if I can't watch movies anymore. So lets say I install Ardour and the whole computer goes to hell. I can't watch movies...

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 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. What gives? --...

DVD install hangs at driver install . .
Hello, I am new to Suse being a Kubuntu user mainly then Ubuntu with ldxe. I've got rather fed up with 'bloat' and continual issues with Kubuntu so I am going to try Suse 12.1 with ldxe. However unlike Kubuntu I am having trouble with the drivers at more or less the start of the install i.e. before any language/keyboard stuff etc. The install hangs at the driver stage and so I am at a loss as to what I do now. I know there are issues with Nvidia on Suse and I have what I believe are the bits and pieces I need to get the correct driver in place once the installation h...

LiveCD or DVD for installation?
Since I have decided to install openSUSE 11.2 when it comes out as a final version, I need to know if the DVD is better than the LiveCD for a desktop installation. I don't care if the installation DVD comes with lots of more packages; honestly, all I want is a KDE 4.3 desktop with YaST, OpenOffice.org, and most of the KDE applications. And the rest I can easily get from the repositories. So, does the LiveCD come with all software applications (counting the apps in the repository) that someone like me will want? openSUSE 11.2 will be using LZMA compression, so I guess it will co...

LiveCD vs DVD Install
I have downloaded the 1.1 gig Gnome Live DVD and successfully installed to my Dell E310. Have most everything working as I want (just installed today). My question is should I try and get the 4.4 gig DVD and reinstall. Is it worth the trouble for what else may be on the DVD. I tried to find a list of what is on each one but cannot find one. So far have run into errors each time I tried to download the larger DVD. I have installed several different distros in the past few weeks and am happy with the Suse Gnome so far above the rest. PC is dedicated to linux. No other OS's on it. T...

Installers and install as admin, run as different user. Win7 ( Vista? )
Hi all, Not sure where to post this. To register an Delphi IDE add-in expert I have to add an entry to HKCU/Software/Codegear/blablabla/Experts/"name"="full-path-to\add-in.dll" If there's no key added there, the add-in won't be loaded by the Delphi IDE. So, my installer adds this entry to HKCU and the same entry to HKLM (which is required by BDS ?) Additionally the installer adds a few other entries to HKCU/Software/ModelMakerTools/blablabla Problem: I have had several reports from Win7 users about the installer failing to do his thing. I think ...
