How to Install openSUSE Linux in Windows 10
Starting with the August 2016 release of Windows 10 Anniversary Update, Microsoft created a Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL), so administrators and developers can run Linux utilities natively in Windows without having the overhead of a virtual machine (VM) and without leaving the Windows environment, which means they can develop and deploy for both platforms.
Microsoft chose Ubuntu as the base for its Linux layer. But what if you are an openSUSE user or you run SUSE Linux Enterprise Server on Azure? How will you get access to SLES/openSUSE specific tools and commands?
There is an uplifting news for such clients: openSUSE/SUSE engineers have concocted an answer that gives clients a chance to install openSUSE Leap on Windows 10.
Microsoft has brought Linux distros like Ubuntu and openSUSE to Windows Store. Users can now simply install Linux distros on Windows 10 machines.
The installation process is pretty straight forward and involves a few simple steps.
In the event that you need to run openSUSE on your Windows 10 framework, here is the means by which you do it:
First, you need to enable Windows Subsystem for Linux. Do it as follows.
1. Open Control Panel --> Program and Feature.
2. On the left, click the link Turn Windows features on or off.
3. The dialog Windows Features will appear on the screen. Scroll down to the option named Windows Subsystem for Linux and enable it as shown below:
4. Click OK button to apply the changes you made. Windows will install Ubuntu Bash.
5. Reboot the operating system when prompted.
6. After enabling WSL, click https://aka.ms/wslstore url link to install openSUSE Leap 42 from Microsoft Store.
7. After the download will get complete, the Install button on Windows Store will change to Launch. You need to click on it to start the installation, which will display the “Installing, this may take a few minutes….” message.
After the installation is completed, you’ll see the “Installation successful” message. You’ll also see the prompt to create username and password. This user account has no relationship to your Windows username and password and hence can be different.
After doing so, your Linux subsystem is ready for use. You can simply search for openSUSE Leap in the Start Menu search box to launch openSUSE Leap shell. You can also click the openSUSE Leap app icon in Start Menu.
- You can now install WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux) distros side-by-side.
- You can also run multiple distros simultaneously.
