OpenSUSE Install :: Install From Live Usb / Boots But Then Goes Black

Dec 14, 2009

I downloaded the live cd iso and installed it on usb using this command (while it was unmounted):ddif=open SUSE-11.2-KDE4-LiveCD-i686.iso of=/dev/sdc bs=4M...I then restarted and it loads into a main openSUSE screen, I choose the "OpenSUSE 11.2" and it starts loading. Then it shows the progress abr under the gecko guy and it starts to load, that moves to a few diff. places on the screen and then it goes black. Any ideas?

OpenSUSE Install :: When It Boots First See The Welcome Screen, Then The OpenSUSE Installer, Whether Select The Live (GNOME) Option?

Sep 16, 2010

I have a SONY PCG-R505TE laptop with an external CD/DVD, it connects via what I think is a PCMCIA card, the drive came with the laptop and functions fine. I currently have Windows XP running on this laptop, but it's very slow.I downloaded openSUSE-11.3-GNOME-LiveCD-i686.iso and sucessfully burned it to a CD.I have the laptop bios set to boot from CD, and it appears to be doing that no problem. When it boots I first see the welcome screen, then the openSUSE Installer, whether I select the Live (GNOME) option, or the Installation.. it loads the kernel, and then loads the KIWI boot systemit is on the third event, waiting for CD/DVD dvices to appear... that something seems to fail... I then see Failed to detect CD/DVD or USB drivethen a rebootexception and it reboots in 120 seconds.

Ubuntu Installation :: Fresh Install Boots But Screen Goes Black

May 11, 2010

I downloaded and burned Ubuntu from (64bit version) while in windows 7 64 i popped the install disc in, and it went into a setup in which it installed it asked to reboot, and I allowed. upon reboot boot I could choose either Windows or Ubuntu, so I picked ubuntu and off it went. It started to boot into the (Ubuntu) OS, it shows the little ubuntu thing, then the display goes black, like there is no signal to the monitor. The PC still runs, and reconizes when I plug in an iPhone or something, there is just a black screen though. I would like to know how to go about fixing this?

OpenSUSE Install :: Upgraded Machine Boots Slower Than New Install?

Mar 19, 2010

recently I have installed a brand new machine with 11.2. Machine boots so incredibly fast so I decided to upgraded another older machine from 11.1 to 11.2. Upgrade went fine but old machine boots significantly slower. On new I see message "doing fastboot" and few seconds later KDE starts loading. Amazing. On old I just experience regular boot, speed is comparable to old 11.1.What am I missing after upgrade? Same kernel, almost same set of services. Both machines are pretty regular PCs/x86_64, however old one have faster/better hardware (more cores, more GHz, more RAM, 2 disks in software raid-0).

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Black Screen On The Live CD Or When Trying To Install?

Apr 30, 2010

I want to make a clean install of 10.04 instead of just upgrading from Karmic.However when I run the boot cd I get the new Ubuntu boot up screen (with the five dots) but after a while I get a black screen and at the same time the cd stops running in the drive.The only thing I can do is pressing down the start button until my computer shuts down.I do get the menu to choose to run the live cd or make a new installation, but whatever I choose, I end up with the black screen.

I'm trying to install on an older IBM Thinkpad R50e, with 500 mb RAM so I figured that it was simply just too old to run the new ubuntu. The strange thing however is that the cd is actually running fine from within my Virtual Machine. This I don't get

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 DVD Boots But 11.4 DVD Does Not

Aug 14, 2011

I have run into a problem trying to do a DVD upgrade from 11.2 -> 11.4. My computer is setup correctly to boot from DVD boots successfully from the 10.1, 10.3, 11.2 DVD so I don't think there is an issue w/ the BIOS config.

I have run md5sum on the DVD and the generated sum agrees with the values posted on the 11.4 download page so I don't think my media has been corrupted.

When I put in the 11.4 DVD and reboot the machine I see flashing from the DVD activity light and hear the disk spinup.....then it boots 11.2 from the harddisk. how to troubleshoot this...

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.4 New Install, Only Get Cursor On Black Screen?

May 25, 2011

I just installed 11.4 with KDE on a COMPAQ EVO D510 SFF. The install seemed to go smoothly but after the boot completes I have only a white cursor on a black screen. The cursor moves with the mouse.At the boot menu, I can select alternatively "failsafe" and that takes me (after login) to the Linux command line and I don't know how to work that very well

I have a laptop that runs openSUSE 11.2, KDE 4.3.*. I've connected an external monitor to this laptop.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 Boots To Command Prompt Not KDE

Aug 16, 2010

Computer: Toshiba Satellite A505D laptop
OS: Suse 11.2, installed from Linux Pro Magazine disc -- was running fine after formatted install (dumped Vista), been running it for a month.

Situation: Saturday, I went to an installfest for help getting my Pantech UM-175 USB aircard to work with my new laptop. One of the guys there got it running, and then we downloaded all of the updates. Following download, I shut down the laptop and hit the road. I got home last night, booted the computer a little while ago, and it came up to a command prompt rather than KDE. I was able to log in on the command prompt.

Cold and warm reboots gave the same results, as did Failsafe boot. I am assuming that something in the updates cut off KDE from starting. We did several cold boots at the installfest and it was working fine after the modem install, but BEFORE downloading the updates.
1) How do I manually launch KDE?
2) How do I get KDE to autoload again?
3) Is there anyone in the Reno, Nevada area who is a Suse guru, or are there install fests near Reno?

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.4 Only Boots Into FailSafe Mode?

Mar 22, 2011

So after research decided to go with OpenSuse 11.4 distro.

Installation had no problems but when I try to boot into the normal mode it just gets stuck on the screen that has a loading bar. The loading bar never makes any progress. After having waited for 15min I shut down and booted from failsafe mode. That worked fine twice only and then it prompts me in the command screen for login and password. After I input both it tells me to enjoy but Im still stuck at prompt screen, never loads GUI.

Im now booting windows on my acer Aspire 5633wlmi. It has a Intel Core 2 duo t5500 processor which I understand is 64 bit. So the version of Linux I downloaded was the 64 bit one.

OpenSUSE Install :: Live CD BOOT/INSTALL With HCL K38 Laptop

Mar 16, 2011

I am using an HCL k38 pdc laptop and I am unable to boot KDE live cd of opensuse 11.4. The system boots to a graphical screen where a progress bar is shown. the progress bar proceeds to about 90% and then my system hangs. ALl I can see on my screen is that graphical image with suse logo and progress bar. Though my mouse works and I can move it all around the desktop but if I try pressing any key (CAPS/NUM LOCK/SCROLL LOCK) i dont see any LED notification for that. this concludes that the system is hanged.

Key board has no issue as I can use it in Windows.

I tried to boot the lice cd in text mode and it worked very fine from there I installed the system on to my HDD in dual boot mode with windows XP. But after installation when I boot opensuse from HDD it stucks at the same position.

I think this issue is with Nvidea graphics card as when the system boots I see an error message that says that the RAM has an address conflict with VGA ROM.

How can I use opensuse. I have even tried ubuntu 10.10 but it also hangs while booting or after booting. So far I have been able to manage only Sabayon Linux working on this machine however the ubuntu 9.10 was working on this system and it also started behaving similarly after I upgraded it to ubuntu 10.04.

OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To Install - Live CD From Usb Stick

Jul 11, 2011

I have done a big big mistake (I could beat myself up for that) with my netbook and now I am sitting here, not getting openSUSE installed on it.

I wanted to try another netbook linux and installed (more by accident than intentionally) Easy Peasy Linux. This system is not bad, but cannot work with the wireless adapter in my netbook. However, I then wanted to install openSUSE 11.4 again, which ran fine on the netbook. But the install always gets stuck in different stages and I donīt know why.

Sometimes a failure message comes up: "filesystem is read only, rebooting in 120 seconds", but I am not really sure if this is for the harddrive or the usb stick. In other occasions, the bootprocess until install gets stuck at "starting KDM". Nothing happens then... thats it.

I already have reformatted the usb stick and copied the openSUSE Live CD via Imagewriter on it again... no success.

So now I am really confused, because I donīt know if there is something wrong with the harddrive? Or is it the stick itself? How can I find this out?

If it is the harddrive, how can I at least refomat it? Remember: no CD or DVD drive, just USB stick...

How can I find out if the image on the stick is ok? I already tested the install media and it said: "checksum ok"

OpenSUSE Install :: System Boots To Grub Instead Of Kernel?

Apr 14, 2010

I installed Fedora 13 on a separate partition and it deleted all of my openSUSE entries in grub. Or the boot menu, whichever is correct. From another thread, I found these commands and tried it:


root (hd0,3)
setup (hd0)

hd0,3 contained one of my openSUSE installs. Everything went well and grub accepted all of these commands except quit. So I used esc and rebooted. The reboot brought up the grub shell again. I could find no way to boot anything. Then I used the 'repair installation' option from the 11.2 dvd and installed a new boot loader for /dev/sda2 which contains 11.2.

This was successful, so I went to the YaST bootloader tool and added /dev/sda3 (Milestone 5) and /dev/sda4 (Fedora) and rebooted. But these two partitions still boot into grub instead of loading the correct kernel.

OpenSUSE Install :: System Boots But Hangs At Desktop

Jul 18, 2010

I upgraded OpenSUSE 11.2 to 11.3 today using Zyyper on my laptop. Everything went fine with no errors whatsoever. At the end, a message was displayed at the terminal asking me if I want to see the notifications. I pressed "Y" and the system hanged there and then. I had to do a hard reboot. After reboot the system booted fine but hanged at the desktop with no response from the keyboard, mouse, touchpad, etc. The situation's same after many reboots. System boots fine but hangs at the desktop. Screen resolution changed to 800x600.Only power button works! I use it to log off and then do a reboot.

OpenSUSE Install :: Only Failsafe Mode Boots After Upgrade From 11.2 To 11.3

Aug 26, 2010

I have just upgraded from 11.2 to 11.3 using zypper dup (with all the necessary pre steps). After upgrading X does not start with normal boot, only starts with failsafe mode selected. Otherwise the system boots and works in normal mode, only X doesn't start. I have tried to remove and reinstall the radeon driver, but no success. Tried Xorg -configure, with no success.I post my former (11.2) and actual xorg.conf files. Could you help in getting things work normally. If only possible I would like to avoid making a clean install.

OpenSUSE Install :: VM Based On 11.3 That Boots Into A Console In Run Level 3

Jun 27, 2011

I have a VM based on SUSE 11.3 that boots into a console in run level 3. I am used GNOME so I am trying to get it installed but not having any success. I don't know a lot about the VM as I got it 2nd hand.

So far I have gone into YAST and installed gdm and all the dependencies. I have changed from Run level 3 to 5.

When I run startx I get

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.4 Boots To Windows 7 Only Unless Installation DVD Is Inserted?

Aug 9, 2011

I have Windows 7 installed, I then installed opensuse 11.4. Everything went fine with the installation, no issues. After I removed the DVD and reboot, it does not load GRUB at all and just loads into Windows 7. However if I put in the installation DVD then select to boot from local disk it loads GRUB. So now I have to load the DVD if I want to get into suse.

Not sure how to fix this. I see some of you request for such information so here it is:
# fdisk -l


Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders, total 312581808 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes

OpenSUSE Install :: System Resets And Just Boots Back To The EFI Shell Again

Oct 13, 2010

I am trying to install OpenSuse 11.3 x64 via EFI. I successfully performed a Windows 7 install and I'm trying to do the same thing with OpenSuse now. My system boots into the EFI shell. I can cd into the /efi/boot/ folder and run bootx64.efi. Immediately after I press enter I am presented with an ELILO boot: prompt which either eventually times out and continues or I can press enter and have it continue. Either way my system resets and just boots back to the EFI shell again.

Running bootx64.efi worked for starting the Windows 7 setup but it doesn't appear to be working with OpenSuse. Is this a broken feature or am I doing something wrong?

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 Final Will Not Install From DVD Or Live CD's

Jul 20, 2010

I am currently running 11.2 on my PC and have been doing so since it was released with no problems. When I try and install from my DVD (MD5sum and media verified) all goes well until the installer gets to the "searching for linux partitions" bit and then it dies completely. I have tried installing from a KDE and GNOME live CD and they both boot cleanly and load a usable desktop in both cases with internet access and all my Windows and openSUSE 11.2 partitions visible and browsable.

When I try to install from either of these discs Yast2 gets loaded and then just dies. I am at a total loss as to how to progress any further. Incidentally Fedora 13 won't install either so I suspect it is a kernel issue as my hardware has not changed since I installed openSUSE 11.2. I have been using SUSE since 10.0 and have never has any problems installing before now.

OpenSUSE Install :: Comment On 11.4 Install From Live CD

Jun 26, 2011

I tried installing 11.4 from the live CD on a new motherboard (ASRock N68C-S UCC) and the very first screen (license agreement) comes out so garbled that I can not read anything from it. I tried to run rather then install from the live CD, with the same result.

Hitting F3 and changing the resolution to 800x600 still did not fix this. I find it surprising, because I would expect the installation process to use low quality graphics and therefore not be too bothered about the specifics of the graphics chipset (NVidia GeForce 7025 / nForce 630a in this case).For reference the machine has 1 GB ram.There is no such problem with the 11.3 live CD, which is what I ended up using. So no problem in terms of getting the PC up and running.

OpenSUSE Install :: Boots Ok In FailSafe Not In Normal ... Get The Hanging Wallpaper On The Screen

I just installed OpenSUSE 11.4 on a completely blank machine, empty disks, etc. using a Network Install. The install appeared to run OK, but when it rebooted to do the configuration, it hung. I tried a manual reboot a couple of times, then booted in FailSafe mode - came up OK and ran through the auto-config. Now, it still boots up ok in FailSafe, but in normal mode I get the wallpaper on the screen, but it hangs there.
