    Question how to create SuSE 11.1 update DVD?


    Hi,

    recently installed OpenSuSE 11.1 on several workstations (which are not connected to internet). Is there a way to create update DVD so that, these workstations can update using the DVD?

    Thanks!

    I think you'd need to put all the updates on the DVD, configure each machine to use the DVD as a package installation source, then install the packages onto each machine.

    Check these links for some info on doing that:

    Creating YaST Installation Sources - openSUSE

    Maybe someone running OpenSUSE will be able to provide further info.

    Thanks ozar for the links!

    This is a lot more difficult than I thought. I am still trying to understand how to approach this based on the links.

    I would just cheat if I was you!

    What I do is to is to install opensuse and then (using yast updates, packman & all the update repos) download the individual rpm's and put them into a central folder. Then add this folder as a yast source and just click on the update all option.
