 Installing the openSUSE 12.3 Image
- Put your Chromebook into developer mode.
- Open a root shell: login to ChromeOS, open crosh with 'ctrl-alt-t', start a real shell with 'shell', become root with 'sudo -i'
- Enable USB/SD booting by running the following command as root from ChromeOS.
- Download the latest image at http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/devel:/ARM:/12.3:/Contrib:/Chromebook/images/ and choose between:
- JeOS image (1GB) for a minimal system openSUSE-12.3-ARM-JeOS-chromebook-*.raw.xz or
- XFCE image (4GB) for a graphical system openSUSE-12.3-ARM-XFCE-chromebook-*.raw.xz
- As root extract the image onto your SD-Card or USB drive (replace sdX with the device name of your SD-Card or USB drive). WARNING: all previous data on the SD-Card or USB drive will be lost.
xzcat [image].raw.xz | dd bs=4M of=/dev/sdX; syncNote: this step can be done directly on the Chromebook by using the Chrome Shell. To get to the Chrome Shell just press ctrl-alt-t when logged into ChromeOS. Once in the Chrome shell, type 'shell' to get into a bash shell. You need to be root, so do a 'sudo su -' and be careful. You will find the image in the users Download directory of /home/user/*/Downloads. Make sure to have your memory card inserted into your Chromebook and the appropriate filesystems unmounted first. The device entry should be /dev/mmcblk1 for an SD Card, but verify first.
- Insert the SD-Card or USB drive with the openSUSE image into your Chromebook.
- Power on the Chromebook.
- Boot from external storage using Ctrl-U (If you don't, the device will boot into ChromeOS in developer mode again).
- Eventually YaST will start in first boot mode. This configures the preinstalled image on the SD card or USB drive, rather than installing to another disk. Walk through the first boot steps on the display.
- Have a lot of fun...
