DVD install hangs at driver install . .


I am new to Suse being a Kubuntu user mainly then Ubuntu with ldxe.
I've got rather fed up with 'bloat' and continual issues with Kubuntu so
I am going to try Suse 12.1 with ldxe. However unlike Kubuntu I am
having trouble with the drivers at more or less the start of the install
i.e. before any language/keyboard stuff etc. The install hangs at the
driver stage and so I am at a loss as to what I do now.

I know there are issues with Nvidia on Suse and I have what I believe
are the bits and pieces I need to get the correct driver in place once
the installation has completed.

Any ideas please?

System: Amd (Athlon) 64x2 Dual Core Processor 4200+
Nvidia GeForce 8400 GS/PCI/SSE2

What "drivers" ????

almost everything should be supported "out of the box" 

and WHAT issues with nvidia?
the .run runs just fine 
the oneclick should 
and the open nouveu driver works fine for most light users 

so what problem are you referring to? 

as to bloat 
opensuse is by far more bloated that ubuntu

Hi - thanks for the reply.

I boot from the DVD and click 'Installation'. Up comes about 20 lines
of text ending as follows:

>>> opensuse installation programme v.3.5.15 (c) 19996-2011 Suse Linux
Products GmbH
Starting udev . . . ok
Load basic drivers . . .

At this point the system shows no activity and I gave it 10 minutes on
the last boot.

That is the issue.

I had read somewhere that Suse was not as bloated as Ubuntu (Kubuntu)
and I intend to run it with ldxe so . . . .(?)

Install RAID drivers during install
Hi there, I have a new Dell R610 server with a H200 RAID controller onto which I am trying to install OpenSuse 11.1. That said, it does not appear to support the RAID controller. I see that Dell have the Linux drivers for the controller on their website (officially supporting ES10 / 11 and RHLE5). Is there an easy way to to install these drivers during the early part of the setup process? I'm a bit stuck as to where I load them in. Any help would be much appreciated.

Inspiron 1000 install problem (11.1, 11.2, net install, dvd install)

Both get the dreaded "cannot create repository" (i'm paraphrasing). No problem, I download and burn 11.1, 11.2 net install's, checksums check out ok.

DVD Install not different from LiveCD install?
I installed openSUSE once from the Live CD and couldn't do it and went back to Ubuntu. Then my friend who uses SUSE came and said that SUSE actually comes on a DVD and is loaded with stuff. I got the DVD (7h+ to download) and then I installed and the only difference is the install and options on installing KDE4, or GNOME, or KDE3. Should I re-install (don't have any data on here yet so it's safe) and choose a lot more software and load it? Otherwise the extra DVD download I could call a waste. -- blenderman345 -------------------------------------------------------...
