openSUSE in Raspberry Pi 400

You can use the same image used for the Raspberry Pi 4.

Writing a disk image to a USB stick or a SD card

  1. Download the image you want (Leap is stable, Tumbleweed is rolling) from here. Make a choice of desktops:
    JeOS - Just enough Operating System - a very basic system, no graphical desktop
    E20 - Enlightenment desktop
    XFCE - XFCE desktop
    KDE - KDE desktop
    LXQT - LXQT desktop
    X11 - basic X11 system

    If the direct links above do not work for you, please check the general download directory for the images.

    If the direct links above do not work for you, please check the general download directory for the images.

  2. As root extract the image onto your SD card (replace sdX with the device name of your SD card).
    WARNING: all previous data on the SD card will be lost. Check first if the device you have selected is really your SD card!
     xzcat [image].raw.xz | dd bs=4M of=/dev/sdX iflag=fullblock oflag=direct status=progress; sync
  3. Insert the SD card with the openSUSE image into your board.
  4. Connect the board to your PC via serial port (optional, but helpful for debugging; USB-TTL serial cable needed).
  5. Connect the board to your monitor (via DVI/HDMI, optional).
  6. Power on the board.
  7. Walk through the first boot steps.
  8. Ethernet is configured to request an IP via DHCP, check your DHCP server for the board IP if used.
  9. Have a lot of fun...
Default login is root:linux, works on serial console, via ssh, GUI.

Installing openSUSE using an ISO (advanced)

It is possible to directly install from the DVD ISO, or the NET ISO, on Raspberry Pi 400.

A USB key (that can contains the DVD) and an empty SD card (at least 16GB) are needed.

The ISO (DVD and NET images) are able to boot on the Raspberry Pi. So, you just need to copy the image to an USB stick, plug it in the RPi and follow instructions from HCL:AArch64_EFI

Known issues

Boot from USB is not enabled by default

Please check the information for the Raspberry Pi 4: HCL:Raspberry_Pi4#Boot_from_USB_is_not_enabled_by_default
