I also went to the main SuSE site, but it everything was trial software.

  • there's no specialized medium for different desktops or flavours. Simply one install medium for all flavours and you can select what you want during installation – mimi.vx Nov 21 '17 at 10:52

Choose the openSUSE-Leap-42.3-DVD-x86_64.iso

When you will start the installation process, it will ask you for Desktop Selection, there you can choose Minimal Server Selection (Text Mode)

There is also SUSE enterprise Linux Server, it can be used to install the OS headlessly but it isn't offered freely. They give a 30-day. You can try it on kvm.

  • will this work installing through kvm on ubuntu? virtualized OpenSuSE server is what I want. (didn't think through install process.) – Thufir Nov 12 '17 at 23:12
