    32 bit cpu with EFI


    So I want to install OpenSuse on my tablet that has x86 32 bit cpu with
    EFI.

    I installed "grub 32 bit efi" package but this does not make the image
    bootable.

    I have manually added a "bootia32.efi" fie on a usb in "EFI/Boot" folder
    and grub loaded but with no menu of course since I was only testing it.

    Is there a package that would make the image to boot with efi on 32 bit
    cpu ?

    There currently is no support for 32bit EFI in opensuse. There is
    feature request that support be added.

    The method you are using might be your best current option. Once you
    get opensuse installed, you could adapt your method to boot the
    installed system. Or perhaps look into using "elilo".

    Thanks for your response. I think 32 bit EFI is on few devices and it
    may be the reason why it is not supported yet. I don't know for sure.
    I'll check elilo's doc and when I get t my pc during this moth, I'll try
    installing OpenSuse in a usb and booting it to use yast to set it for
    EFI if there is a setting for that.

    I tried using elilo package and it is not detected as a bootloader. I
    will check again after some time.

    Just FYI, this question doesn't pertain to SUSE Studio, so you might want
    to try the openSUSE forums' install/boot/login forum for this type of
    question in the future.
