Re: [opensuse] Installation DVD is horrible!
don fisher composed on 2016-01-12 16:26 (UTC-0700):

I have been trying to build a bootable USB drive on my 13.2 system. I
plug in the USB drive, BOOT the installation DVD and select
installation. I get to where it shows the devices, and select the Create
Partition .. and choose the USB drive. I then have to go to Expert
Partitioner to set up swap, /, and home partitions. But even after doing
all that, when I start the build the damn thing first formats the USB
swap partition, and then mounts a swap partition from another drive, so
my fstab is corrupted. Why does it refuse to honour my request to use
the USB drive? Is there a trick I am missing?

The USB drive already had valid partitions on it when I started. I told
the system I wanted to use all three, by checking them in the usage
menu. But it then reformatted the disk, removing the existing swap and
making the first partition /. It was intending to use the same swap it
attached above.

I do not think this should not be this hard. Why is swap so hard to deal
with?

I'm guessing you're not actually in expert mode. On "Suggested Partitioning"
http://fm.no-ip.com/SS/Suse/YaST/132/yastI132-SugPrt0768.png what you
actually need to select is "Create", not "Expert". Only then will YaST's
partitioner do only what you specify instead of allowing you to modify its
proposal.
