interndan the guy must probably be at a place where he can't download the image thats why he has asked the question I think!
You will need to do this on a Linux box console or run it from the console you will get thru the first CD installer
* First download all CDs from a mirror near to you
* Then mount loop all the images
# mkdir -p /mnt/SL10B2CD01 && mount -o loop /path/to/iso/SUSE-10.0-CD-OSS-i386-Beta2-CD1.iso /mnt/SL10B2CD01
# mkdir -p /mnt/SL10B2CD02 && mount -o loop /path/to/iso/SUSE-10.0-CD-OSS-i386-Beta2-CD2.iso /mnt/SL10B2CD02
# mkdir -p /mnt/SL10B2CD03 && mount -o loop /path/to/iso/SUSE-10.0-CD-OSS-i386-Beta2-CD3.iso /mnt/SL10B2CD03
# mkdir -p /mnt/SL10B2CD04 && mount -o loop /path/to/iso/SUSE-10.0-CD-OSS-i386-Beta2-CD4.iso /mnt/SL10B2CD04
# mkdir -p /mnt/SL10B2CD05 && mount -o loop /path/to/iso/SUSE-10.0-CD-OSS-i386-Beta2-CD5.iso /mnt/SL10B2CD05
* Then copy the contents of all the mounts into a safe place. Maybe like this:
# mkdir -p /tmp/sl10b2dvd
# cp -rfvp /mnt/SL10B2CD01/* /tmp/sl10b2dvd
# cp -rfvp /mnt/SL10B2CD02/* /tmp/sl10b2dvd
# cp -rfvp /mnt/SL10B2CD03/* /tmp/sl10b2dvd
# cp -rfvp /mnt/SL10B2CD04/* /tmp/sl10b2dvd
# cp -rfvp /mnt/SL10B2CD05/* /tmp/sl10b2dvd
* Now you can umount the mounts
# umount /mnt/SL10B2CD01
# umount /mnt/SL10B2CD02
# umount /mnt/SL10B2CD03
# umount /mnt/SL10B2CD04
# umount /mnt/SL10B2CD05
* Now change into the new path with the copied CDs. As we only get one installation media you can safely delete every directory not named "media.1"
# cd /tmp/sl10b2dvd
# rm -rf media.2 media.3 media.4 media.5
* Now change into the directory "media.1" and alter the file "media" with an editor of you choice. The original file will show the number "5" as normally the installation should go from a five CD-set. Please alter it to "1" and save the file.
# cd /tmp/sl10b2dvd/media.1
# joe media
# rm -f media~
* Make sure everything inside the "boot" directory has write permissions. You may see some errors but you can safely ignore them.
# chmod 777 -Rv /tmp/sl10b2dvd/boot
# cd /tmp/sl10b2dvd/suse
* Now we need to re-create the package description files making YaST know where the files are.. Please write the following in one single line.
# create_package_descr -x setup/descr/EXTRA_PROV -l english -l spanish -l french \
-l german -l czech -l hungarian -l italian -C
* Now let's write the ISO. Please write the following in one single line.
# mkisofs -v -V SU100OSS.001 -r -J -l -L -P "SuSE Linux AG" \
-b "boot/i386/loader/isolinux.bin" \
-c "boot/i386/loader/boot.cat" \
-no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table \
-graft-points -o /tmp/openSuSE-10.0-beta2-DVD.iso \
* You may use this ISO-Image as a virtual DVD for VMware or - last but not least - burn it to a real DVD :-)
I don't know wether this (a SUSE idea) will work for Slackware too. I think it should .. you should try it out and remember to tell us the result in this forum! if you are unsure by my "I think it should" ;wait for some guru to tell us the truth in this forum
Although you should have googled and found this out yourself thanks a lot for putting this on the forum. Quite Interesting!
