    I think the live CD has a safe settings boot. Did you try the safe settings boot? Do you get the same problem?

    If you get the same problem, then IMHO not much you can do other than raise a bug report. Submitting Bug Reports - openSUSE

    ... you could also try the 11.2 milestone4 live CD to see if it has the same problem as 11.0 and 11.1. openSUSE-11.2 - CALL FOR TESTERS - openSUSE Forums

    You could also try the live CDs from other distributions. I find sidux (a debian based distribution) has an excellent liveCD with up to date packages.

    Don't !!

    Skip m5 and wait for m6.

    m6 is out on Monday. In fact, if you know where, you can download it today.

    m5 has some horrible bugs that were fixed in m6.
