On the DVD

opensuse 42.2 Leap

Outside the Box

The DVD that comes with this issue includes openSUSE Leap 42.2 [1], a brand new, truly 64-bit operating system for your Pi. openSUSE installs a fully-featured Xfce [2] desktop and allows you to install thousands of packages from the online SUSE repositories.

The openSUSE image on the DVD is already uncompressed for your convenience so you can copy it directly from the disk to your card. Use an empty SD card, preferably at least 8GB in size. If you are installing from Windows, use a utility like Win 32 Disk Manager [3] to burn the image from the DVD to your card. Mac users can use the dd command line tool, the same as Linux users.

There are more instructions on how to write raw images onto SD cards here [4] and here [5].
