    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.

    [image: http://s6.postimg.org/fhmbrshy9/glibc.png]

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

    Re: SuSe Studio file compression problem with iso image.


    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
