Adding hw monitoring modules possible?

I would kindly ask to add hw monitoring modules to get e.g. the core frequency or make cpu scaling possible...

Broken link to tumbleweed images

As the link is not directly on this page but seems to be some macro, I don't know, how to fix this. --Dheidler (talk) 09:19, 19 September 2018 (UTC)

Meaning of "non-upstream"

what implicate the difference between non-upstream and non non-upstream ?

The openSUSE/SUSE kernel team can only support official, "upstream" based kernels. If you choose to use a non-upstream kernel by some vendor like Broadcom or Raspberry Pi Foundation, you don't get security fixes and similar updates and are essentially on your own. --A faerber (talk) 17:40, 28 December 2017 (UTC)

Contrib images has been deleted but upstream Tumbleweed images still not work

I don't know why, but every time I try to use the upstream Tumbleweed will get a kernel panic. --GroverChouT (talk) 05:02, 28 December 2017 (UTC)

I had this issue too and this was related to a bad U-Boot/DeviceTree. I will try to test to see if this is the same issue. --Ldevulder (talk) 12:40, 28 December 2017 (UTC)

The first version of the USB stick (DVD Leap) installation does not work with both Leap and Tumbleweed. It loads from the USB stick but just before starting the setup window I only get a black screen. The image, on the other hand, functions flawlessly.

Menu for version with DVD iso does not work

Except the one mentioned here I tried other versions of u-boot-rpi3, but none is able to access the USB drive with the iso image. I get the U-Boot> prompt and "usb reset" and "usb tree" do work, and the USB drive is listed. Once I saw a message about a missing partition table, which is expected because a iso image does not have a partition table. --Fdekruijf (talk) 19:23, 25 January 2018 (UTC)

Bad image?

I have tested a few of the leap images and each won't boot, its just a rainbow screen. The unit is fine (other OS's) and the same with the SD card. Is there a chance the image could be bad? how do I get a working version with XFCE?

- Try the first version: write a raw-image to sd-card. That boots and it's a live-version. It claims the whole card for root so I inserted it into my laptop and used gparted to decrease the root-partition (10G). So I could add a swap- and a home-partition. Now that is the installation I wanted.

Suggestion for independent declaration

May I change this installation guide in a way, that the user has to find the right links himself. Eg. show the user this link "" and tell him to chose the right ISO (and the right u-boot-rpm) and set the resulting link into the command line ##. This way the guide would be independent from distribution-numbers and links. -- Spielmops
