In this post, I would like to show you how to install openSUSE Leap 15 on a virtual machine.
In the previous post, I created a new VM in Proxmox Virtual Environment. In this article, I will share the steps to install openSUSE Leap 15 on it.
Select the Installation option by using the up/down arrow keys and press enter.
You will need to wait a little bit until all the hardware and drivers are initialized.
In the below window, you can change the language and the keyboard layout, and you can read the license agreement. Press Next to continue with the next step.
Here you can configure the Ethernet Card, choose a hostname and specify the DNS servers.
Now you need to select the system role for your new VM. If you want to use it as a server, you can select the Server role. Otherwise, you can choose the Desktop role. Here you have multiple options to select from: KDE Plasma, GNOME and Xfce. Press Next when you are ready to move to the next step.
If the suggested partitioning scheme does not meet your needs, you have the option to adjust it. Use the Expert Partitioner button. Once ready, press Next.
In the Clock and Time Zone window, you can configure the Region and the Time Zone. I have selected Europe for the Region and United Kingdom for the Time Zone.
Finally, you can create the username and select your password.
If the password is too simplistic, you will see a pop-up window. Press Yes and then Next to move to the next step.
Here you can find the Installation Settings Overview.
Press the Begin Installation button to move to the next step.
Confirm by pressing the Install button to move to the next step.
Wait for the installation to complete.
Press OK to reboot or wait until the system reboots itself.
The first thing that you see after the system reboots.
Open a terminal and check the OS release from the CLI.
Update the system to use the latest available software. Use the command sudo zypper update.
When the update process finishes, enjoy exploring the new Linux distribution. As you can see below, there is no other software to update.
