Is it correct that SuSE Leap 42.2 only consists of 1 DVD?
Is there a "addon" DVD like some of the earlier releases had?


Thx in advance

1. It's openSUSE
2. Yes, there's only the DVD and the NET ins
tall ISO, which fits on a CD, but there's no Addon CD anymore. The
distribution
repos contain far too many packages to distribute through optical media
(isos).
3. During install you're being offered to enable online repositories, which
does not only gives you access to the non-oss repo, but also enables the
update repo. Using those makes you end up with a completely up-to-date
install.

To get online he needs the firmware for his network hardware, which is
not on the DVD. It was previously on the addon for 13.1.
