Can't install 11.2 on Nvidia Raid

I can't install 11.2 on my Nvidia raid. x2 150GB WD Raptors.
Installation starts but only gets to 1%.

I get 

> linux udevd[126]: worker [4496] failed while handling
> '/devices/virtual/block/dm-0'
> linux udevd[126]: worker [4498] unexpectedly returned with status 0x0100

and eventually

> device-mapper: ioctl: unable to remove open device nvidia_eeebfafb_part3

OpenSuse 11.1 installs/runs fine on this setup...

Hope someone can help/shed light on this.

Same here, interestingly enough retrying works, but then I get hit by a
bug - see my posting "11.2 install on hw raid1 with lvm2 fails"

How do I make it restart? I've tried various partition layouts LVM or
not with EXT4 but either way I get the same problem.

There's bug out on 11.2 for RAID installation, and I'm not sure about
Nvidia "Fake RAID" driver, those are liable to leave you with an
undocumented & troublesome disk format, with a rarely deployed driver
under Linux.

For this I would advise using Linux RAID tools.  Just partition your
disk more than you would normally.

Make on one disk :

/boot - ext2 sda1 80 MB
/     - ext4 sda5
/home - ext4 ..

On the other disk, duplicate partition sheme for anything you may want
to mirror.

Once you've installed you can change data filesystems to md(4) mirror
devices, with just one physical partition in mirror at first, then add
partition from 2nd disk to install the mirroring.

By seperating  out /boot, you can mirror that to simply, and have fall
back GRUB entries in /boot/grub/menu.lst to boot from either disk.

Finally, Switch to mirroring '/' and testing that. It'll need changes
to the initrd's used, so the loaded kernel can load modules for mirrored
device when it mounts the root filesystem.

Thanks for the response, I'm actually using a STRIPE array with Windoze
installed on the 1st partition and then Linux installed to the other...

Ubuntu and OpenSuse 11.1 have both worked in this setup.
I guess I'm probably best removing the RAID array and using the
harddrives separately...

11.2 install
Have installed OpenSuse 11.2 64 bit version from DVD and the screensize can not be adjusted to 1280x1024 on a ASUS EN9800 TOP graphics card using configure desktop. My CRT is connected through a VGA cable. The maximum size it supports is 1024x768. On 11.1 this worked fine. Have also tried to install the latest NVidea driver Nvidea Linux Display Driver 190.42. Than the resolution size is even lower: 640x480 and can't be adjusted.

NVIDIA driver causes crashes, old one can't install on 11.2?
I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem. I have an NVIDIA Geforce 9650M and when using drivers from 185.xx to the current 190.42 my screen flickers and my computer eventually crashes within a few minutes (sometimes seconds). This happens whether I have desktop effects on or off. The last version of the NVIDIA drivers that didn't have this problem for me is 180.60. In opensuse 11.1_x64 I could use 180.60 drivers with no problem, but in opensuse 11.2 I get the following error when I try to install: /tmp/selfgz6438/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-180.60-pkg2/usr/src/nv/os-agp.c: ...

I first tried this with the version 11.0 and then again with 11.1 with no difference. I boot from the liveCD, everything looks good and then the entire screen goes blank and stays blank. I suspect this happens when it attempts to switch to the graphical video mode. The quick hardware specs are: * New blank SATA HDD is installed. * I'm booting from the LiveCD * Dell Dimension 8400 with 4-Gigs RAM * Video card is a NVidia 9500GT with dual DVI outputs. This setup works perfect with WinXP-Pro and with Ubuntu 8.04. But with OpenSuse (and Fedora 10.0) it gets to a certain poin...

Can't install 11.2
Hi, I downloaded 11.2 DVD, burned it and now I am trying to install it (now I have on my desktop 11.1 installed and works perfectly). My 11.1 only worked when passed the acpi=off command to the kernel on boot time, but this doesn't seem to work on 11.2, I tried noapic edd=off acpi=off apm=off pci=noacpi nothing works, its loading the kernel, starts to load the modules and reboots when reaches 'usb modules' ('Activating usb drivers...' or something like this >:(). Not even the firmware test works, reboots after kernel is loaded. I have : AMD Sempron 3000+...

Can't start postgresql on a fresh 11.2 install
Hello all, I can't start postgresql and logs are empty. Here is the complete steps I did so far: I just installed Opensuse 11.2, got it up to date. Then I zypped in postgresql and postgresql-server. When I first did rcpostgresql start, after a while (a minute or so of waiting) I got a message "could not start server". Bummer. So, I logged in as user postgres (which was successfully created), and issued: initdb -D /var/lib/pgsql/data Looking at /var/lib/pgsql/initlog everything was created just fine.
