Issue#14046: Linux - openSuse Leap installer gets stuck or doesn't load

  • I have been preparing to perform a major upgrade and HDD replacement at the same time. While waiting for the hardware to arrive, I have been downloading and burning all the iso's that I expect to need.

    I have downloaded the openSuse Leap X86-64 iso twice and the boot from dvd fails at the same place each time.

    -checksums ok,
    -media boots and verify media ok when done in a different machine

    -openSuse 13.2 i586 DVD gets to the partitioning part of the install at which point I bail out.

    When booting from the Leap x64 DVD there is a green progress bar that runs along the bottom of the screen. It gets stuck when that reaches 100%. I left it for 20 minutes last night just in case it was a bit slow.

    Does any one know which point in the start up this or is there any way to get some verbose messages up on the screen so that I can see what is happening?

    At this point I am suspecting that something in my machine does not like 64 bit even though the CPU (Pentium D 820) and chipset (intel 945G) should be ok.

    Best Regards

  • Issue#59594: Linux - openSUSE LEAP 42.1 install problem

    Have also a strange [never before in decade] install problem with 42.1; after download, burn and verify, and start of install [got screen where select ‘installation’] and see that it has finished loading the Linux kernel, it goes to black & white scrolling script and then ends [cursor blinking at bottom of screen]; no further screen or install progress. First time it ended at line : ‘[0.253117] PCI:using config type 1 for bass access’ After that first time it stalled 3 times in row at: ‘[0.44494] Timer: vector = 0x38 apic=0 pin1=2 apic2=-1 pin2=-1’ Should mention that initial laptop [Itronix VR2] b&w [not LEAP OS] screen has: 1. Legacy (isolinux) Select CD-ROM Boot type: (put in the 1 and Enter and starts install process). Installing on General Dynamics GoBook VR2 [Intel Centrino duo] Would it help to input various kernel options?

  • Issue#632004: Linux - openSuSE Leap 42.1 static IP address won't ping router; all settings look correct.

    Hello all, I've spent the better part of this day trying to find answers and Google just isn't what it used to be, at least not for me. I have a Lenovo P50 for work, and I put openSuSE on it. I have working WiFi and Ethernet adapters, and can get on the Internet just fine on either as long as I use DHCP. Unfortunately, as I am a network administrator at work, I often need to manually set an IP address for my machine. I did this once this morning, successfully, and was able to administer a small managed 10-port DLink switch. However, I later tried the same methods to administer a Cisco 5508 AP controller and could get nowhere. Thinking it was the controller or my link to it, I reconnected to the production network and gave myself an appropriate address for that subnet, trying different addresses when it didn't work (and verified with nmap ping scan that each one wasn't in use beforehand). Nothing allowed me to ping anything other than localhost. I looked up on Google to make sure

  • Issue#1001742: Linux - The AntiX cli-installer doesn't install grub

    I've just completed an installation of AntiX on an old computer that I'm going to give to a friend. I found a couple of problems during the installation and I wonder if there is a quick way of reporting these to the AntiX team without having to subscribe to the AntiX forum. I don't want to belong to too many forums or I'll never get any work done! This is antiX-16 (Berta Cáceres), base edition. It boots to a graphical desktop with an install icon. I clicked on it but didn't get very far; it crashed out while copying the files over. I don't know exactly where because I wasn't watching the screen at the time. When I next looked up, the install window was gone. There is also a cli-installer so I switched to that and found it much more robust and quite easy to use. It ran to completion and reported no errors. But afterwards I couldn't boot from the hard drive. There was simply no sign of a bootloader although I had requested for grub to be installed in the mbr. This clearly hadn't happe

    I have noticed this issue with many KDE 4 distros. It's mostly relevant in KDE SC 4.13.2 and 4.14. The distros that I have noticed this with is PCLinuxOS Plasma 5 Preview, Linux Mint, Mageia 5, Solyd K, and Kubuntu 14.04. I did post this to KDE bug reporting but nothing has been done with it. The problem noticed is when a person navigates to System Settings, Windows Appearance, Windows Decorations, Get New Decorations; the add-on installer is stuck on initializing. Just wondering if anyone is having this issue and if there is a work around or if it has to do with Plasma 5 migration. Thanks and Happy 16th LQ!:)
