1.13 Performing the Installation

After making all installation settings, click Install in the Installation Settings window to start the installation. In the dialog that opens, confirm with Install again. Some software may require a license confirmation. If your software selection includes such software, license confirmation dialogs are displayed. Click Accept to install the software. When not agreeing to the license, click I Disagree and the software will not be installed.

The installation usually takes between 15 and 30 minutes, depending on the system performance and the selected software scope. After having prepared the hard disk, having saved and restored the user settings, and having deployed the installation images, the software installation starts. During this procedure a slide show introduces the features of openSUSE. Choose Details to switch to the installation log or Release Notes to read important up-to-date information which was not available when the manuals were printed.

NOTE: Release Notes

The release notes that can be viewed during this step are the ones printed on the installation CD. A newer version may be available on the Internet. When manually configuring network and Internet access as described in Network Configuration, the latest version of the release notes will be displayed at the end of the installation.

After the software installation has completed, the basic system is set up. Among others, Finishing the Basic Installation includes installing the boot manager, initializing fonts and more. Next YaST boots into the new Linux system, where you can configure the hardware and set up system services.

HINT: Existing SSH Host Keys

If you install openSUSE on a machine with existing Linux installations, the installation routine automatically imports the SSH host key with the most recent access time from an existing installation.
