    Question black screen after startup

    I have just insalled opensuse 11.2 with KDE and it started first time. But second time there is a black screen in the moment of loggin in. After pressing shutdown key screen goes pink-violet with strange resolution and system is shutting down.
    There is a photo of startup where I have spotted errors:

    I have GeForce 7600 graphic card.
    I am beginner user of opensuse.

    One thing I can tell: there's trouble mounting one of your partitions, /dev/sda7 . Might be a disk error.

    Boot from the install media and run the repair function.

    11.2 is pre-release software...did you intend to install something not
    yet released for wide, public usage?

    if so, you need to post your problems and get your solutions in the
    correct forum:

    if installing 11.2 was an accident i suggest you start over, at and then

    on the other hand, if you mistyped and intended to ask for help with
    openSUSE 11.1, then using the forums search engine
    <> just enter
    black screen after install
    specify to "Search titles only" and hit enter

    or, i'll help you, go here:

    /dev/sda7 is ext4 partition
    I have checked all partions using fsck tool and they are clear.
    I mounted /dev/sda7 in Ubuntu Live CD and it worked OK.

    I don't know if it is important but I have RAID option in BIOS for the hard disk and it is set to RAID-0.

    You were right, I didn't want to start with pre-release.
    Thanks for introduction and download link I will try with 11.1.
