12.1 Installation Issue - Cannot complete installation

I have tried to install 12.1 multiple times on my workstation, but to no
avail.  Instead of upgrading my previous installed system, I put in new,
larger hard drives and going for a clean, fresh install. 

I get through the first part of the installation okay.  I set up the
disks, select packages, etc.  

After it installs the packages, it goes to start up a session, and all
I get is a white screen where I can see the cursor symbol, but nothing
happens.  I've even let it go four hours to see if something was just
being slow, and nothing.

Any ideas?  (System is an older system with an Athlon II processes and
768MB of RAM.)

Other than the newer HDs (160 GB each ... former were 80GB), I put on a
new monitor, hoping that widescreen was now supported.

Looks like a video problem, and you haven't said what card you have.

The video card is an NVIDIA GForce2 MX-400.

This is the same card that I've had in the system for the last two SuSE
distributions that I had installed on this system.

The first half of the install, through the point the packages were
installed, displayed just fine.  It was once it moved to the next phase
of the install (starting up the local copy) that it went haywire.

Try the nvidia driver 96.43.20 from the nvidia repository it is supposed
to work with that card, did you try the failsafe mode to get into an X
session, if that fails boot into a virtual console session and run
ncurses yast to add the nvidia repo and install the driver.

If your install was not complete due to the graphics problem, run the
text based installation mode.

Hi if you want to get to x session try this when you boot:

boot options

vga=0x314 nomodeset

this should take you to a x session then find the drivers for your
graphic card.

Hope it helped. ;)

After trying to install utilizing the text-only mode (multiple times), I
receive the following error after doing an fsck of each of my raid-1
partitions:

systemd[1]: Failed to enqueue OnFailure= job: Exec format error

The system is a 32-bit system.  

This is likely the issue that has prevented me from installing in each
instance, and has been repeatable 100% of the time.

I see that there has been a bug reported and resolved for the issue of
systemd failures with RAID devices, and a patch is available. 

https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=731230

I've booted into the Failsafe mode and the Yast2 first boot text screen
is up.

Booting into failsafe seemed to get around the systemd issue, and after
patching, that problem appears to be resolved.  

Cannot bring up X at this point due to issues with the video driver in
the distro (Nouveau) and the graphics card [appearing to be of an issue
related to the latest x-windows engine].

I now the updated driver from the vendor, but need to figure out how to
disable the Nouveau driver to be allowed to install the NVIDIA driver
that I need.

Didn't realize that would be an issue this time around.  I've been
configuring for RAID for about 10 years.  Wasn't an issue before.  

That piece is resolved.  Now for video issues.

It looks like I'm going to have to just wait for 12.2, and hope the Xorg
stuff is fixed.  Was able to get the video driver updated, but for
multiple tries on two installs on my workstation, X took forever to try
to get loaded, taking near 100% of the CPU, and then crashed each time. 


Loading with 11.4 now, and hoping that is stable enough to have as a
workstation until 12.2 comes out.

RAID is always a potential failure point and you should always say what
you are doing different then a standard PC

If you do not report the problem on bugzilla chance of having it work
in 12.2 is decreased.

please log your bug, or do not be surprised that 12.2 is exactly the 
same! (they can not fix what they do not know about)

Same issue with 11.4.  X takes 100% CPU (does not take 100% of the
memory, about 620MB out of 768MB).

Reproduced consistently with both the default video driver and the
latest from NVIDIA.
