OpenSUSE 11.3 on User-Mode Linux
Hello! After successful installation of Ubuntu 10.10 (described here) I decided to do the same with OpenSuse 10.3.
The first and the main problem I've encountered is lack of deboostrap analogue for OpenSuse. However, I hope that something the same does exists - maybe, somebody knows?
So, because of the mentioned above problem the long story begins. As described in UMLWiki: Building root file systems it's possible to boot from CD by taking an UML kernel and passing to it an initrd of the original boot CD. However, as I understand, it's correct only when UML kernel version and original boot CD kernel version are the same. The official OpenSUSE 11.3 DVD comes with root 2.6.34-12 and the latest for today stable vanilla kernel is 22.214.171.124. I have no idea where to take kernel v2.6.34-12, because kernel.org provides neither 2.6.34-12 nor 126.96.36.199.
So, to start an installation process of OpenSuse I followed these steps:
By the way, I've found some kind of analogue of debootstrap. It's SuseStudio, web system for building and configuring Suse images with help of the browser. Built images are allowed for downloads.
However, it's not pure analogue :)
