Thread: LiveCD don't want working...

  1. #1

    Default LiveCD don't want working...

    I've downloaded the latest version of openSUSE (11 with KDE) LiveCD.
    After downloading i check the md5 sum - it's ok.
    So, i want to record this iso into my cd-rw, all ok. The image is record fine without any bugs, and the sum is ok.

    PC reboot with livecd in cd-rom. Booting, changing language, loading proces... and:
    Jabber Disk -
    this is what i can see... what happens with this livecd? I've ubuntu8.04 and 7.10 livecd and this works for me, but openSUSE not...

    Please for help me, because i want to change my ubuntu8.04 to openSUSE.

    Och, my PC:
    1 gb ddr
    gf 6600gt
    amd athlon xp 1800+@1540mHz

    I believe what you are seeing is a result of a video configuration mis-match. If this is the case, then there are boot time overrides that can get you by the problem.

    Unfortunately I do not have a live cd available And I do not remember what it does at boot time.

    Perhaps you can get one of the more knowledgeable people here to respond to a question about how to enter override parameters when you boot from a live cd

    And make it more clear that the link you provided is in fact a screen shot of what you are getting.

    OK, inzaghi89

    I downloaded the kde-suse 11 live cd.

    When it boots it porvides you with a grub splash screen.
    Hit function key 3. This will allow you to select a video config different than the default. Select "VESA" and hit enter.
    this should solve your problem.

    If you plan to install suse 11.0 from the running live version, you may have a problem booting the installed version, If so, do a search, this forum I think, for "sax2" -- you'll find some info about fixing an xconfig mismatch.

    I've planning to install oSUSE after i will test it by livecd. I think the better way to install it is from DVD (i don't must download package from the internet, because all is on the dvd ).

    So now... i'll take reboot my system and try 'VESA', so see you soon .

    I've seen that! Unfortunately, no one on this forum was ever able to provide me with a reason or a fix or a work around.

    When I had the problem, I was trying to boot from an external usb cd/dvd

    I think i know what make trouble.

    On the ubuntu i've the same problem few month ago. openSUSE installed for me drivers for GF6600 which is don't work for me. So i must change driver from gf6600 to nvidia-glx-new. But how? I can only use terminal (ctrl+alt+f2). I know, i must change nv to nvidia in /etc/X11/xorg.conf but how?
