openSUSE Tumbleweed installation


openSUSE Tumbleweed: The openSUSE distribution will probably love it, though it differs from other Debian-based Ubuntu Linux distributions.

Although these distributions are preferred by millions of users, I will focus on something that makes openSUSE stand out:

Its code base is Enterprise (from SUSE Linux Enterprise to be exact). So there is a solid foundation that the openSUSE project community is developing. The distribution has two different versions, the fixed LTS version of openSUSE, and the rolling Tumbleweed version.

Tumbleweed contains the latest packages of any software packaged by the openSUSE project. The last kernel, the latest libraries, the latest work environments. Everything at Tumbleweed can and is constantly changing.

I personally consider openSUSE a very reliable and "Easy" distribution as long as you take the time to learn the amazing yast. Of course I suggest you try it and you will see that it has nothing to do with the Ubuntu philosophy.

Let's look at the installation steps (click on the images to enlarge):

With boot from live ISO, double-click the installer on your desktop.

Accept the terms to get started.

On the next screen the installer will (individually) set the network settings so you can connect to the Internet during the installation

Then you have to accept the addition of the necessary repos

I have chosen to install KDE DE.

and move on to partitions

I choose an expert to create my own, and not automatically, since my system contains other operating systems.

I select a partition for the root (/) for configuration and I also give the partition for the boot without selecting the "format" since it contains bootloaders from other operating systems.

We're ready with the trays. Let's define the time zone

openSUSE Tumbleweed

and the extra user outside the root

openSUSE Tumbleweed

We are ready. The following screen will show us all the settings:

openSUSE Tumbleweed

One click starts the installation:

openSUSE Tumbleweed

When finished, it will ask you to restart. If you are using other operating systems and have not disturbed the main boot, your computer will not display openSUSE, as the primary operating system should first see it.

So with a boot on my main boot system I give the following command:

openSUSE Tumbleweed

That's it! If you are interested download the ISO

Enjoy your new openSUSE Tumbleweed. Read more about distribution
