I’ve simplified my life, so I am no longer doing regular monthly installs. But I still do occasional installs. In this case, the occasion was a topic at opensuse forums: • A user was not sure how to install without a network. So I decided to do an install, to make sure that this was still possible. Lush Lovelife Zip. Downloading I began by downloading the latest snapshot. I first used wget openSUSE-Tumbleweed-DVD-x86_64-Snapshot20160813-Media.iso.sha256 to download the sha256 checksum file.
That’s a small file (654 bytes), and I find it easier to use “wget” for small files. I then verified that file, using gpg --verify openSUSE-Tumbleweed-DVD-x86_64-Snapshot20160813-Media.iso.sha256 The file itself has a gpg signature, so checking that signature is sufficient to verify the download.
Next, I downloaded the main DVD installer file: aria2c -V -R openSUSE-Tumbleweed-DVD-x86_64-Snapshot20160813-Media.iso I use “aria2c” for meta-downloads. It can concurrently access several mirrors.
The “-V” option tells it to verify the download against the checksums in the meta4 file, and the “-R” tells it to preserve the original file date. As an additional check, I then verified the sha256 checksum for the file, with: sha256sum -c openSUSE-Tumbleweed-DVD-x86_64-Snapshot20160813-Media.iso.sha256 That reported that the download was good. It also complained about some badly formatted lines.
Those lines are actually the included gpg signature, so this is just typical output and can be ignored. Finally, I wrote the downloaded installer to a USB flash drive.
This was an 8G flash drive. On the computer that I am using, the flash drive normally shows up as “/dev/sdd”. I used ls -l /dev/sd? To check that. And then I used: dd_rescue openSUSE-Tumbleweed-DVD-x86_64-Snapshot20160813-Media.iso /dev/sdd to write the file to the USB device.
Installing My plan was to install on my laptop. This would replace an earlier Tumbleweed installation that I have not been updating. My laptop normally boots to opensuse Leap 42.1, but I also have Windows 7 and space for an alternative linux.
The first step was to unplug the network cable, since the main point of this install was to complete it without a network connection. And, of course, I then plugged in the USB flash drive to which I had written the installer. Next, I powered on the laptop, and repeatedly hit F12. On this Dell laptop, that brings up a boot menu. I selected booting from a USB. And, before long, I could see that the installer was booting.
