openSUSE:Tumbleweed installation

tagline: From openSUSE

openSUSE Tumbleweed can be installed either by downloading and launching an installation image to start from scratch or by upgrading from a stable release.

Installation

To install openSUSE Tumbleweed download the latest Tumbleweed ISO below, verify the download, burn it on a DVD or write it to a USB stick with ImageWriter and launch the installation from there after a reboot.

To verify the signature, download the .sha256 file and run gpg --verify on it. The file must be signed by opensuse@opensuse.org with fingerprint 22C0 7BA5 3417 8CD0 2EFE 22AA B88B 2FD4 3DBD C284. Then run sha256sum --check on the sha256 file to make sure the iso is intact.
