OpenSUSE Install :: White Display After Login Screen

Dec 29, 2009

This is the 2nd time this has happened. I installed 11.1 & 11.2 later. After the install I would get the login screen just fine and then when it starts running everything goes white. It is an issue with compiz and my graphics I assume. The interesting part is in opensuse 11.0 I had all compiz items not installed. When I installed 11.1 & 11.2 they reinstalled. For next time is there a way to not have these installed on the install? What I had to do was login in a different session other than Gnome. Then go into yast and remove compiz. Then logout and log back in with gnome and the white screen is gone.

OpenSUSE Install :: Auto Login To White Screen & Run Level 3?

Feb 2, 2011

Main problem: newly installed Suse 11.2/Gnome from DVD i586 goes to white screen after auto login. I re-installed once with same results. I have limited understanding of linux.

System: Biostar M7NCD Ultra mainboard with NForce Ultra 400 chipset, AMD Barton 2500 (overclocked), GForce FX5200 NVIDEA video.

FYI: I used this exact video card on an older mainboard and ran linux with it no problem and all hardware checks out okay when I drop in a HD with XPpro on it, which makes this a linux software problem by my reckoning - video setup most likely. I can boot to the green Startup Options screen and then my ignorance starts to show.

I wanted to boot to level 3 then try some things (init 3, sax2 -r) I've read about on this forum and from www search but I'm password blocked in level 3!? Install only asked me for one password and it doesn't work here.

How do I deal with the level 3 password issue?

OpenSUSE Install :: Suse 11.4-KDE Udevd-work Error While Booting

Jun 25, 2011

I am seeing a udev error message on booting that I have not seen before with LInux and which I cannot interpret. My Suse 11.4-KDE installation is fairly new. My system is a System 76 PanP4 Pangolin that originally ran Ubuntu.Uname -a returns: Linux linux-zcga 2.6.37.6-0.5-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT 2011-04-25 21:48:33 +0200 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux. My video is a Geforce 9300M with an nVidia driver.A Google search turns up the fact that similar error messages have been reported with Fedora, Ubuntu, Meego and Gentoo. These frequently have had something to do with sound and in at least one case the advised correction was to reinstall udev. I can see where bugs were filed but with no clear response. Some of these go back several years, the most recent is within the last few months. I did not see a posting that involved Suse.

1.Can someone tell me what these error messages mean?
2.Does this pose a problem?Everything seems to work normally on my system once I am through the boot process.
3.If this is a problem how does one fix it?

OpenSUSE Install :: Partitioning External Drive - Screen Was Just Blank Black With The Flashing White Line

Jan 11, 2011

this is my first time doing a custom partition, I tried to do it with only the assistance of reading as I go, but I don't believe I found enough information last night. What I am trying to do, is put openSUSE on 200gb out of 500gb space on my external hard drive, as well as on 50gb space out of 110gb on my internal hard drive. The remaining 60gb space on my internal drive is going to be for microsoft windows. The remaining 300gb space on my external drive will be storage space. It seems like what I want to do is achievable

What I want is to have my main openSUSE on the external drive (primary partition I think?), with the GRUB loader so that when the external drive is not plugged in, my little brother can use windows on my internal hard drive. I tried this last night, and when installation had finished, I rebooted my computer and the screen was just blank black with the flashing white line as if waiting for me to type, although it would not allow me to type when I tried. It would be great if someone could tell me the order in which to partition, including the terms primary partition, extended partition, and logical partition, as needed.. I don't want to permanently muck up this machine.

OpenSUSE Install :: Booting After 11.3 Install - Hangs At A Blank Screen ?

Jun 8, 2011

I recently tried to upgrade my openSuSe 11.1 system using the instructions at:

SDB:System upgrade - openSUSE

I successfully got the system to 11.2, but the upgrade from 11.2->11.3 went awry. The installation froze during the update, and I had to start it over. The first issue I had to deal with was the fact that rpm had been upgraded and zypper hadn't, so zypper wouldn't function because older rpm files that it would search for had been deleted. After rolling back rpm to a previous version, I managed to complete the upgrade to 11.3 and everything looked good. However, when I rebooted the system, it hangs at a blank screen. More precisely, the system seems to get through all of the BIOS stuff and then hang while loading the OS (I assume). Although I've worked on Windows boxes for a long time, I'm a complete novice at OS installations/upgrades for Linux systems, so I'm not even quite sure where to begin to troubleshoot this. Ideally, I'd like to be able to fix the installation on the system to save the data on the hard drives, but I realize this might not be possible. My first thought was to use a recovery tool that I'd seen on some Linux installation CDs, but I see that for openSuSe 11.3 and on that utility has been dropped. I can, however, use the disk to get to the "Rescue" command prompt, so maybe there's something I can do from there?

OpenSUSE Install :: Booting Stuck At Splash Screen?

Nov 5, 2010

New install on Compaq Presario F700 (F756NR)The install went fine. I was able to get the Nvidia drivers working too. The problem I have is when the system boots. I get the OpenSuse splash screen, and the system just hangs.I found that if I press <Esc> and hit <Enter> a few times, the system will eventually boot. I also found if I wiggle the mouse during the splash screen, the progress bar will begin to move, and the system will boot.Seems to be something about detecting hardware during the boot phase, and it seems to be input related.

OpenSUSE Install :: Restarts In Loads Suse And Then Goes To A Black Screen?

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 Shows Black Screen While Booting Every 5th Time

Mar 15, 2010

I'm using OpenSUSE 11.2 64 bit. Sometimes boot fails and I get a black screen. It starts quite normal, but when it tries to start X and KDE, it fails and I only see a black screen. I can't switch to terminal and I can not reboot my computer by pressing "Ctrl + Alt + Del". It doesn't even shutdown by pressing the power-button. The only possibility is to switch off the computer. Then it normally starts.

The problem also occures with a clean installation of OpenSuse. And it cannot be solved by updating kernel, X-Server and KDE.

What files do you need? I'll post them.

The same computer worked fine with OpenSUSE 11.1. I think, the new radeon driver could be the problem, I have to use it because I can not use fglrx anymore as with 11.1

I take a look into my log-files, but I cannot see any error. Sometimes it seems, that /var/log/messages is partly overwritten by restarting the machine.

OpenSUSE Install :: LiveKDE Not Booting - Hanging On BIOS Screen

OpenSUSE Install :: SUSE 11.3 On Dell E6410 - Screen Went Completely Black

Feb 27, 2011

I have my brand new Dell latitude e6410 delivered with Windows 7 already installed. I want a dual boot and I decided to try SUSE for the first time. I used the installation DVD, the installation seemed to end up well. The problem is that already at the first reboot, the screen went completely black. By pressing ctrl-alt-del I can reboot the laptop. It seems to me a problem with the graphic card.

My setup is:
Dell Latitude e6410
Intel i5 m560 @2.67 GHz
nVidia NVS 3100M
4Gb DDR ram
Intel 82577LM Gigabit Network connector

If I start in failsafe mode, the X server starts, I have KDE, although with a somewhat sketchy graphic, I can use SUSE almost normally. The main problem in this case being that the system doesn't find any ethernet/wi-fi device, so I cannot connect to the Internet (I'm writing from Win7 right now). I tried choosing the default SUSE boot with the additional boot option "nomodeset" at the grub prompt. This is a suggestion mentioned in another post on this forum, although in that case the problem was coming from a bug dealing with an Intel graphic card. The system goes up but then kde doesn't start. I'm asked to lgin at a prompt. If I try to launch kde from command line (startkde), it complains that the variable $DISPLAY is not setup.

This is where I am now. I'm quite out of ideas, so I want to ask you few things. First stupid question: is the problem coming likely from the drivers of the nvidia graphic card? Second question: in that case, how can I fix it, considering that the linux partition is "isolated"? The fact that in failsafe SUSE doesn't see any network adapter concerns me a bit.

OpenSUSE Install :: Suse But Installer Corrupts Screen Graphically And Is Unusable

Aug 16, 2011

i've tried both the gnome and kde installers and initially it boots fine to the first menu, but if i then select 'installation' or even try to boot to the live cd, the screen goes blank and then reappears as something that looks like the static on your television if you're trying to tune it in. if you let it continue to boot, then it goes blank again and comes back with a different corrupted screen, but this time you have a white block in the middle that is apparently the mouse point as i can then move it around.

i've tried it in VESA mode and even text mode and the same thing happens. the installation media checks out fine, and my graphics card is brand new - a Radeon 3650 HD. I might try an older version of suse and try and upgrade from there

Loads to the screen where you choose between regular and recovery, select e for the normal boot to see boot commands.

The GNU GRUB 1.98 boot reads as follows:

What do? ubuntu 8 worked fine, i ran an update to 10 and it did the same thing. i figured i would try debian since i have it on my other 2 computers. this is being installed on a desktop with a radeon 9800 graphics card. i know the card is the problem because of a driver issue (as i've read) but how do i get it.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: White Screen And System Halt In 11.4

Jun 22, 2011

Just installed OpenSuse 11.4 successfully on my machine (E-machines T6212). Previously attempted to install Ubuntu 11.4 on it as well. Both OS have resulted in my computer screen turning white with blue lines and the entire system freezing; unresponsive to keystrokes and even keyboard CAPS/NUM lights don't respond. Only way I can get system to come back is to physcially unplug it, not even power it off with Power button.

I believe there is something with my graphics card that may be the culprit; ATI Radeon™ Xpress 200M - ATI Radeon™ Xpress 200M Specifications

Because for both OpenSuse and Ubuntu this problem came up.

However with OpenSuse I am able to get to the Terminal Screen via : 1- On startup typing '3' into the screen and getting into 'grub' I think it is called.

I am not able to GUI.

I have read: Configuring Graphics Forum Page l in the forums here as well as looked into the Radeon page for the drivers.

I have also found the following thread here dealing with my particular graphics card but :

1-In my 'xorg.conf.new' file in my /root the correct driver "radeon" seems to be listed.

2-I added "radeon" to my 50-device.conf file in /etc/X11/xorg-conf.d/.. directory

General :: Ubuntu - White Screen Of Death (Brand New System Install)

Dec 4, 2009

I am a Linux newbie and did one successful install Ubuntu 9.1 32 bit on my old desktop. Encouraged by that success (and the ease of it), this week I built my own system, which will be my primary system. I am trying to install Ubuntu 9.1 (AMD 64 version) and after the partition selection screen (I chose to partition the entire disk), I immediately get a white blank screen. Then nothing happens. I also tried with Ubuntu 9.1 32 bit, XUbuntu 9.1 64, Ubuntu 9.04 all had the same results.

Not sure if the hardware specs are required, but here they are:
1) Motherboard: MSI KA 780 G
2) Processor: AMD Athlon II X4 630
3) Memory: Corsair 2 x 2 GB, 800 MHz twinx 6400 c6
4) Harddrive: Hitachi sata 300, 1 TB

In desperation, I have started windows XP installation and that seems to progress fine at its leisurely pace. Its formatting the drive right now. During one of the attempts, it did install something*, since after that I see a new ubuntu partition after that. But when I boot from hard disk I get a black screen with cursor. I tried to search thru the forums and nobody seemed to have this exact problem, one guy got a white screen with cursor after a graphics card install, which is not the same. I dont want to go back to windows.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Resolution - Screen Looks Fuzzy In Certain Places Especially White Areas And Bars At The Tops And Bottoms Of Pages

May 19, 2011

I am having some issues with my screen resolution. I am not sure if it is a monitor or graphics card issue. I believe I have the ATI x300 card. I am gunning a dell dimension E510. My monitor is a MAG Innovision. The screen resolution keeps changing. I had this same issue with 11.3. Also, the screen looks fuzzy in certain places, especially white areas and bars at the tops and bottoms of pages. By fuzzy, I mean it will be a color that doesn't belong there and it will kind of look like static, in either a line, or a blob, or just the whole box. I recently had to disable all desktop effects because they would make the screen unusable.

Ubuntu :: 11.04 Will Not Complete Booting Anylonger?

Jun 6, 2011

I have been running Ubuntu 11.04 with very good results up until this morning, when all of a sudden when I turned on the computer power it loaded a different login screen that I am used to (much simplier in design than the regular one).Anyways, I entered my password and hit login. After some time my background image appears, and the mouse cursor is visible as "Waiting/Loading" on top of it. And that's it! Ubuntu will not get any further than this and the only thing I can do now is to turn off the power with the button on the computer.

On the login screen I am not able to choose another account than my own account. I know I tried to install a login screen called GDM or something, because I wanted to customize it, but the GDM was not successfully installed - could this be the cause of why I see a very simple login screen all of a sudden?I am able to choose session type though, and I have tried with all different sorts (User defined session, Ubuntu, Ubuntu Classic, Ubuntu Classic (No effects), Safe mode, Recovery Console) but always the same result (only goes to the point where it loads my background and the mouse cursor in Waiting/Loading state).My setup is like following:- Ubuntu 11.04- Running Ubuntu Classic with Compiz and some GUI tweaksHow can I proceed? I hope I do not have to reinstall Ubuntu entirely

OpenSUSE Install :: What Concerns Use Of Complete 16 GB Memory?

I assume 64 would be more effective?On the other hand there seem to be less problems with the availability and/or installation of applications on a 32 bit system.
