Suse Linux 9.2 Cover disk 64bit installation...

Postby foekker » Sat Apr 09, 2005 5:59 pm

elo!

Want to install the 64 bit version of Suse 9.2, but I've lost the magazine. I remember it had a recepie for installing on a 64bit machine.

I have downloaded the x86_64 catalog from ft.suse.com. Its on the root of my C disk. The installation proggie displays 3 hda's 1-3.

What do I do now? How do I get it to use these files while booting from the DVD? I tried manual installation and slecting all hda's using 'x86_64' in the directory field. But it somehow fails to mount or something. What was the recepie again? Whould I burn this catalog on a DVD or..?

Any help appreciated. Feel free to email me directly at removethistextemil@rakoczyandthistexttoo.no.

Please post the solution. Otherwise others searching with the same problem will find only the question, not the answer.

Go answer my other thread instead of nagging in this one.

1. I asked for the recepie from the mag. I can't be bothered to quote it in here, expecially since none could be bothered to answer my Q when I neded the recepie. So the answer to that Q is: Go check the mag noob. Besides, I don't think it'll be a FAQ on the web, since most ppl who'll encounter this problem will also have the mag. Anyhoo.. case closed.

When it comes to the mounting problem, I still haven't got an answer. The copying bit was all root files from DVD + boot cat, suse\suse cat, image.1 cat. The x86_64 folder goes in the suse\suse cat.

It still won't work tho.
