Thread: opensuse 11.0 don't finalyze boot

    Default opensuse 11.0 don't finalyze boot

    Hi,

    I am new to OpenSuse, and after installing the system, I cannot finalyze the boot.

    Grub works fine. It shows all options (OpenSuse, Failsafe, Windows XP,..)

    If I select opensuse, it starts to bring the system's up.

    When I have half of the load bar filled (which means middle os the initialisation), the system is automatically rebooted....

    And this happens over and over....

    My machine:
    Laptop, 720 Mb Ram, 32 Mb shared video, DVD rewirter, I also use a Acer 22' screen attched to the laptop.

    Any advise in how to solve this?

    Before I installed I also check the integrity of the DVD, which is ok...

    Thanks,

    Marcos

    And, what happens if you boot 'failsafe' instead?

    I have pretty much the same problem.

    Fresh "net" install with no errors, but spontaneous reboot, over and over.

    No change when choosing "failsafe".

    To isolate X as a cause I changed initdefault to 3 (with annother Linux distro).

    Now the system freezes at various points during the init scripts.

    Used "nofb" at the grub command line, still hanging during boot.

    So, it's most likely not the X system and not the framebuffer ...

    Hi,

    failsafe doesn't solve the problem...

    I reinstalled the system 2 and problem still exists...

    Thanks, Marcos...

    Oh, and it's a Pentium M in a Desktop. The first post was about a laptop. Maybe an issue with power/frequency control?

    my laptop has intel celeron, 1,4 Ghz...

    What do you mean by power/frequency control?

    How can I check/change that?

    That is some mechanism to control the powersave features of the CPU. It's just a wild guess because there is a thing our machines have in common. I suppose you have a Celeron _M_, right?

    Boot up the standalone memory test and check that.

    I'll do that at once I'm at that machine (around 1700 UTC).

    Read some bug reports regarding hangs and might try annother kernel in addition. I could install stuff via chroot.

    Thanks!
