openSUSE Edu Li-f-e goes hybrid

September 16th, 2009 by

I am happy to announce that the very first working hybrid iso of openSUSE Education Li-f-e DVD created on openSUSE Build Service is now available for testing.

Download from here. The image is called openSUSE-Edu-live-li-f-e-unstable. Hybrid means the same image can be used to create live DVD or dumped to USB stick to get live USB. Here is the procedure to get the image on the USB stick.

#To find your usb stick device run the following in terminal as root
fdisk -l
If you have just one hard disk, the usb stick is usually /dev/sdb

Unmounting all partitions automatically mounted when inserting the usb stick.
umount /dev/sdb1
(umount /dev/sdbX for each partition if you have more partitions on the stick)

Finally dump the image to the stick:
dd if=/full/path/to/openSUSE-Edu-live-li-f-e-unstable.i686-0.6.0-Build28.1.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=4M
Follow the first link in the post if you have free space on the stick that can be used to write data to.

This image is made possible thanks to tons of hard work by Coolo, Schaefi and following KDE hybrids created by Beineri, and of course Tom “satellit” Gilliard for test driving it before the announcement 🙂

Have a lot of fun testing…
