SUSE 10 SP4 install questionn


Hi all

i am installing a server with SUSE 10 SP4, with the DVD image from novell that has 2 dvd images. But when I tried to install it, sometimes I would get an error about package ABC is missing, please insert SUSE10 SP4 CD1, that has me a bit confused.

why does it ask for CD1 if I am using the DVD images?

also, when I tried to switch to the 2nd DVD image, it still can not find the package and just repeatedly shows please insert cd, no matter how many times I click "skip".


thanks guys

My wild guess would be that when this originally was distributed, it was all on cd's. Not sure how they changed it to dvd but one of two solutions come to mind. One is to make a sp4 cd and insert it. The other is to see if that volume exists on either dvd and try to mount and use it.

Could be some old bug that never was repaired.


Kind of an old version isn't it?

Yes it is. And the server I have to put this on is even older. But, what the bossman wants bossman gets.

Incidentally, I found out why I keep getting the disconnect. Because the ilo sw I have dismounts my ISO every 30 minutes or so.
