Installing SuSE 11 via Live CD doesn't install after POST
I'm currently trying to install Open SuSE v11 (32bit) on a system using
the Live CD. The last step in the procedure, found on this site, states
that I should reboot the system after finishing the installation wizard
and that when the system boots back up it will begin the rest of the
installation process. However after rebooting my system sits with a
blinking cursor on a black screen after POST. I do see HD activity on
the HD LED but the system isn't doing anything otherwise. I've left it
in this state for as much as 30 minutes with no change in display or HD...Banshee Will Not Start -Fresh Install- 11.4 Gnome Live CD

I have a Net Install CD for openSUSE 10.3 which I have used successfully
and am now looking at upgrading to 11. Actually I am looking at

One of the steps in the installation is telling it where the OSS

I am wondering, could I just have it point to the openSUSE 11
repository instead or does the CD and repository match?
I'm just hoping to keep from having to download and burn another CD. I

This is just a comment, not a complaint or a request for help.
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
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...53%install while installing from cd

All, an interesting problem. I upgraded (instead of clean installed) my

install Gnome, just KDE. Ok I thought, I can handle this. So, into

I installed KDE from a CD. Then decided I wanted to have Gnome has an
option. I installed "gnome-desktop" via software manager (as per some
other instructions on the forum) but I still have no option to choose
Gnome when logging in.
What all do I choose to get the complete Gnome environment? Or is it
better (& easier?) to reinstall with a DVD?
Can we assume you checked the Session option at the bottom right of the
login screen and did not find Gnome as a sele...does 11.3 KDE Live CD really need 1GB to install?
Actually this is a success story to give you the ending first.
This laptop (Dell Inspiron 700m) has worked nearly flawlessly with
previous releases so it's not a surprise to me that everything came up
ok. (I think the SD reader doesn't work, but I don't care about that.)
The only thing that puzzled me is that when I booted with the KDE Live
CD i686 and selected Installation, it took a long time to start the
installer, and when it did it warned me that I had less than 1GB RAM.
The machine does have 1GB RAM but I think a few MB are stolen for the
video. So I went ahead....XFCE install from live CD, yes CD
Is it possible to install XFCE from the OpenSuse live CD V 11.1, yes CD
? be it either Gnome or KDE ?
Sure I d like to have version 11.1.
On http://en.opensuse.org/XFCE_Live_CD I found the link
http://wua.la/bgta/openSUSE/XFCE+Live which allows download of an
unofficial XFCE-Suse 11.0 version.
Can anyone tell me the differences to 11.1 ?
I have an elderly computer, and would like to install the least
ressource intense system possible.
And of course no DVD drive available, therefore I cannot use the
OpenSuse-11.1-liveDVDs options menu.
Any further suggestions ?
