Any suggestions on how can I install OpenSuse Tumbleweed in an Ampere 1/arm64 instance?

Thanks

  • Mount ISO and install via VNC, just like all other systems.

    You can also consider Webhosting24 or LevelOne or Spartan. (paid links)

    Is there an option for that?

    No. Oracle free tier at least is limited to a small set of given ISOs. For Ampere you're gonna be using ubuntu basically

    Also heads up their ubuntu images have iptables everything blocked except port 22 backed in...plus the network rules in GUI. That catches out most people

    You can search the marketplace for an OS image.
    I found "SUSE Linux Enterprise Server", but not OpenSUSE.

    The other option is running an LXC container with desired OS.

    Since I'm messing around with this anyway:

    You need to create a storage bucket, drop a qcow2 image in there, then create a custom image from that storage bucket. Once the custom image is created you need to mark it as A1 compatible (its under the custom image edit options)

    ...unsure how much of that is possible without a paid acc

    Hi

    I just found out a way to do this, just booted from an iso using grub2 and is working!

    You can also boot from netboot.xyz efi using ipxe, but there's no openSUSE there.
