    burning DVD of SLED-11-DVD-x86_64-GM-DVD2.iso


    hi,

    I downloaded SLED-11-DVD-x86_64-GM-DVD2.iso file from SUSE ftp server.
    Its size is over 5.9GB. My Moserbaer DVD is of 4.7GB capacity.

    Please tell if there any way I can shrink it or split it, so as to make
    it ready for installation.

    thanks in advance.
    uv.

    Hi
    DVD2 is the src rpm's, just copy the iso image to a directory on the
    server and the use YaST add on products to include on the system. Just
    select a local iso image when asked.

    Else you will need to burn to dual layer media

    > SLED-11-DVD-x86_64-GM-DVD2.iso contains only source packages. Usually you don't need them. All of

    them, already compiled and ready for installation, can be found on
    DVD1.
    Also, before installing anything from source packages you need to
    install development packages from > SLE-11-SP1-SDK-DVD-x86_64-GM-DVD1.iso.
