Installation SUSE 10.1 Linux

1. Language Selection


After you insert the first CD-ROM or DVD of SUSE Linux 10.1 into your machine, the

graphical installation tool YaST will launch. Select your preferred language from the list that

4. Accept the license agreement

7. At the Desktop Selection screen, choose Other and click on Select...

8. As we want to install a server, we do not need a desktop. Therefore we select Text Mode and click on

and then on .

9. The Installation Settings screen lists the available installation settings. You can change each of its choices

by navigating to the appropriate headline. First, I change the partitioning scheme by clicking on and then on

and then on

10. Select Custom Partitioning (for experts)

11. Now we create the partitions. I will use the following partition scheme:

/boot 100 MB

swap 500 MB

/ the rest of the hard disk

Creating a partition: Click on Create, select Primary Partition, select the format. I will use ext3 for all partitions

(I want to install quota later on, and quota works best with ext3 - you might encounter problems with

reiserFS!) except the swap partition, that is of type swap. Then select the mountpoint corresponding to the

above partitioning scheme.

Finish to proceed to the next step.

Now switch to Expert mode (the Expert tab in the Installation Settings), select your Keyboard Layout and

Accept

13. Back on the Installation Settings screen, click on Accept and then on Install

14. The hard disk is being formatted

15. The package installation starts (click on the Details tab to see the detailed installation progress)

22.png

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

16. After the basic package installation the system reboots. Remove the SuSE CD and go sure to boot from

the hard disk

17. After the system has come up again, we must provide a Hostname and a Domain Name. My server's

name is server1.example.com, so I fill in server1 as Hostname and example.com as Domain Name.

Afterwards, we disable Change Hostname via DHCP because a server's hostname should be static.

18. Next provide a password for root. Then hit the [Tab] key until the Next is highlighted and hit return.

19. On to the Network Configuration. First we disable the default firewall. This is necessary to prepare the

system for the ISPConfig installation. ISPConfig provides its own firewall. If you do not want to install

ISPConfig, leave the firewall enabled. To navigate in text-mode use the tab and arrow keys. Enable or disable

selections by hitting the return key.

20. Then mark Network Interfaces and hit return. The following screen should come up

28.png

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

21. Hit the [Tab] key until [Edit] is highlighted, then hit return. You should now be on the Network Address

Setup screen

28.png

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

22. I do not want to get IP addresses from a DHCP server because a server should have static IP addresses

so I change this by selecting Static Address Setup and enter an IP Address (e.g. 192.168.0.181) and a

Subnet Mask (e.g. 255.255.255.0)

29.png

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

23. Then go to the Hostname and Name Server settings. The hostname

(server1.example.com) should

already be there (remember, we specified this earlier in our setup). Fill in up to three Name

Servers (e.g.

145.253.2.75, 193.174.32.18, and 194.25.0.60). Unfortunately we cannot disable Update

Name Servers and

Search List via DHCP - I think this is a bug in YaST. Afterwards, hit OK

24. Next, go to Routing and enter the Default Gateway. For me, this is 192.168.0.1

25. Then we can leave the network card configuration by hitting Next twice

34.png

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

35.png

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

27. Our network configuration is finished now, therefore we hit Next again on the Network Configuration

screen

36.png

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

28. The network configuration is being saved

37.png

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

29. Now the internet connection of the system is tested and you may download the latest updates from a

SuSE mirror and install them. Be patient here, this might take a few minutes (package management is really

slow on SuSE 10.1).

30. Now configure the Online Update function and install the latest updates, if available

32. When asked how users should authenticate, choose Local (/etc/passwd):

44.png

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

33. Create a second user other than root (e.g. admin):

45.png

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

34. Read the release notes (if you like...) and hit Next

46.png

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

35. Finally YaST performs a hardware check (graphics cards, printers, sound, TV cards and Bluetooth).

You can accept the results of this check as this hardware is not important for a server.

36. Congratulations! Your base installation is complete.

Finish.
