View Full Version : SuSe Studio file compression problem with iso image.

The build service on SuSe Studio worked fine 2 weeks ago, but now it
doesn't compress the image any more
when compiling / building an iso install or iso live disk.
:(

So instead of generating a 3.7 gigabyte iso image file, it generates a
14 gigabyte iso image file that I can't do anything with.
I already made sure that nfs, bzip, and gzip packages are selected and
added in, however it still won't generate a compressed image.
Which I didn't have this problem when building a 64 bit gnome live disk
about 3 weeks ago.

I am trying to make a custom 32 bit KDE install disk, since I heard that
64 bit Linux won't work on Intel processors.
So I was going to make a 32 bit KDE install disk for compatibility
reasons, since most everyone else seems to
use Intel instead of the AMD black processor that I use. And because
some of the packages I want to add
are not available in 64 bit.

I'd just like to set the record straight. The SLES 11 Deployment guide
states:

Not true.

AFAIK, all current (intel) processors are 64 bits. You have to look up
the characteristics of your processor: whoever said that was probably
talking about 20 years ago.

That stems from an excuse I heard 2 years ago about why someone couldn't
install Linux Mint 8 on an HP laptop computer.
So I had to see that for myself, so I had them bring the laptop over for
me to work on and I couldn't install Linux on it either
because as it turned out that that brand of laptop had a proprietary
BIOS that would prevent booting from any CD or DVD ROM
that was not either Windows XP or Windows Vista install disk. Which only
confirmed my opinions about computers bought
'off the shelf' being inferior and 'hobbled' as opposed to computers
that were custom built from individual parts bought
online or at an electronics store being a superior product. Since big
name computer manufacturers often use such
'dirty tricks' and produce their manufactured computers as cheaply as
possible with planed obsolescence.
Insufficient or missing cooling fans and proprietary BIOS cause such
'off the shelf' computers to burn out
or otherwise become unusable after only 3 or 4 years, shortly after the
warranty expires.

However I did not want to get drawn in to anything even remotely
resembling a political discussion.
I custom built my own computer for maximum durability, and carefully
selected parts that would
be as compatible with Linux as possible given the limitations of what I
can afford, and what is
available locally.

Gigabyte 890FXA-UD5 motherboard, AMD Phenom II x6 1075T 3 GHz, Crucial 8
GB memory, Nvidia eGeForce 7100 GS, Lite on DVD writer drive.

So what other packages do I need to include besides 'nfs client', 'Yast2
nfs client', 'unionfs', 'gzip', 'bzip', 'zip', 'lzma'
to get SuSe Studio to generate a compressed iso image that will fit on a
4 GB or 8 GB DVD-R disk ?

Problem solved, something was buggy.
'Welcome – SUSE Studio'
(http://susestudio.com/appliance/edit/1024242#/start)

I'm working on a 32 bit KDE English / Russian development environment
for C, C++, Python, Java.

Another problem related to the iso compression problem is that I am
getting double entries for 'glibc'
this has me worried that the packages are not being selected properly.

I have already tried deleting the project and creating a new one however
the problem keeps reappearing.

Both problems solved.

When the upgrade to 13.1 happened, it cleared out the corrupted cache.
From now on I will be a lot more careful about the integrity of the
files I upload.
From now on I will test them out on my own system first to watch for
unusual behavior.
Just because the antivirus scan says that the file is ok doesn't
necessarily mean that it is.

As for the iso compression problem, I found out the hard way that nfs,
fuse, and zisofs
have to be included along with all the compression formats in order for
that to work.

Thanks :)
