openSUSE 10.3 Beta 1 Live CDs

August 12th, 2007 by

Stephan Kulow has created and uploaded Live CDs of the 1-CD installations for your pleasure: GNOME Live ISO, KDE Live ISO. He writes: “Please put ‘live CD’ into the summary of bug reports, so we don’t confuse them with the installation CDs. The Live CDs are still very early in development, but we would like to hear your feedback in general.” The password for both the root and the ‘linux’ user is ‘linux’.

    Great but I hope 64bit version will fit CD in 10.3 GM :)

    If you have a backup, there is also an early version of the Live Installer on the CDs within YaST Control Center under Miscellaneous/.

    Ah, and nobody said that password for root is : linux :D

      Thank you. That’s the question I came here to ask.

        By the way (sorry), I meant to say I’d just tried the SuSEGnomeLive 10.3 Beta1 on my box and it appeared to function properly. It didn’t bother to look for my existing swap ptn, which is why I need root’s password.

        I didn’t look too closely but it doesn’t appear to have any major problems on my machine yet. This is a Compaq Deskpro PIII-733, a Compaq 171FS monitor driven by a Matrox MGA 2164W [Millennium II].

        There were a number of red colored failure messages spewed onto the fb console just before X fired up, but they disappeared too fast to find out what they were.

    Hello,

    When I launch this live-CD on my computer, here is the message I get immediately after the linux kernel is loaded :

    Loading KIWI CD Boot-system…
    Failed to detect CD drive !
    rebootException reboot in 60 sec…

    I don’t understand why it doesn’t work, because I have a kubuntu distro installed on this computer, and the hardware is very well recognized.

    Thanks

    I’ve a suggestion to make re: networking. I’m on ADSL and my ISP insists I place a special string generated by them in my dhcp* configuration to be allowed to be connected to their network. In Debian Stable/Etch with dhcp3, it goes in ‘send host-name “blah”‘ in /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf. I’ve found ‘pump –hostname=”blah”‘ works too (Zenwalk).

    FWIW.

    There seems to be a serious regression, as it applies my hardware, from openSuse 10.2 to 10.3 (alpha 6, beta 1 and live cd beta 1 – all kde i386 versions.

    I see a bug which causes MASSIVE fonts (impossible to navigate and also appear in sax2 at console mode) at the kdm login screen (for the install cds) or at the desktop when using live cd. This seems like an upstream bug because I have encountered the same in release versions of Fedora 7 (though not in the Gnome live cd f7), Pardus and Sidux (all recent releases and all with same bug).

    I am currently running openSuse 10.2 and it is working well on this Acer 1644 wmli notebook.

    The bug is most likely, IMO, related to the use of the new intel graphics driver as an upgrade for those chipsets that use/used 915resolution.

    Some specs for my Acer 1644 wmli notebook:

    I tried out the 10.3RC1 KDE Live CD and it will not boot. It gets to the second green screen with the open suse logo and then after spinning the cd for a minute or so it reboots.
    The computer has Ubuntu Feisty installed and working for several months so I know linux works fine. It is a basic intel dual core desktop computer with plenty of RAM.

    Is it possible to install it on my dell laptop ???

    I second this observation. It’s a pity since I really wanted to try it out. I hope this can be fixed soon.
