Installing Tumbleweed, November 2016

It has been a while since I last installed Tumbleweed.  I decided that it was time to again check the installer.

The Tumbleweed system that I already have installed had desktops KDE, Gnome, XFCE and LXDE.  But for recent intstalls (as with Leap 42.2), I have been going with KDE, Gnome, XFCE, LXQt, FVWM and MATE.  So it seemed reasonable for the new Tumbleweed install to follow the same path.  I also added Enlightenment for experimenting.


As usual, I downloaded via the command line.  The install was for snapshot 20161128.  I chose to download both the DVD iso and the rescue iso.

Rescue iso

For the rescue iso, the commands that I used were:

gpg --verify openSUSE-Tumbleweed-Rescue-CD-x86_64-Snapshot20161128-Media.iso.sha256
aria2c -V -R
sha256sum -c openSUSE-Tumbleweed-Rescue-CD-x86_64-Snapshot20161128-Media.iso.sha256

DVD iso

And, for the DVD iso, I similarly used:

gpg --verify openSUSE-Tumbleweed-DVD-x86_64-Snapshot20161128-Media.iso.sha256
aria2c -V -R
sha256sum -c openSUSE-Tumbleweed-DVD-x86_64-Snapshot20161128-Media.iso.sha256
