SuSE 9.3 Install
Continuing with my installation notes for the various SuSE upgrades. After backing up
what was important to me, I went forward with the 9.3 installation. Didn't have to worry about VMware this time
cause it was not installed. VMware 3.2 was wiped out by the trial testing for VMware 5.0 and I hadn't re-installed
3.2 ... yet. I usually have to reload/reconfigure it anyway cause of the new kernel. This one is 18.104.22.168-20a.
The previous was 2.6.8-24.
||Results or Further Actions
||Insert 1st CD
||Got fancy new graphics. Choice of Installation or with ACPI disabled or Safe Mode. Trying
straight install. Press ESC to see what is happening.
||My display is shifted to the left a little over one character. Pushing the Auto Fit on my
new LCD display fixed the problem.
||Language select - English. Then options of New, Update, Repair, Boot or Abort. I chose update.
||A check was made on my previous installation and I was presented a list stating that some packages
are going to require manual intervention.
||Conflict - no libmad.so.0 - selected delete
||No Java. Could've swarn that it was in the selections. Hmmmmm
||QPS & Bluefish
||The install wanted to kill both. I kept them and so far they are apparently working. In fact I
am writing this in Bluefish. The graphics look a little different. A good point is the verbage
below the icons. It is cleaner and more readable on my new LCD display.
||For the most part the update went ok. I am operating everything, so far, as if nothing has changed.
However, I do think some things I am doing are faster. Faster kernel??? It is rather dull if you are
looking for specifics on the install of SuSE 9.3. If you had a good, working version of 9.2, the update
will go/work just fine.
VMware on 9.3
This can be found at VMware on 9.3. VMware version 3.2 was
used in this installation. Personally I don't need all the extras that VMware 5.0 contains. You will find my
exploits with VMware 5.0, both Beta and Released, on SuSE 9.2 in VMware 5 On Linux.
I have not yet experimented with VMware 5.1.
