Thread: All Major Linux Distro's installs except OPENSUSE

  1. #1

    Exclamation All Major Linux Distro's installs except OPENSUSE

    Hi all, I have a Intel Original DH55TC mobo, i3 540 proc, 2 GB RAM and NVIDIA 8600GT Graphics card. I want to Learn and convert Linux to my Primary OS, and somehow OPENSUSE just attracted me so much I just cannot go off it. The problem is it just wont install. Every time I start I get these errors

    SUSE Paste - image of errors

    !!!!!Help please?!!!!

    which openSUSE version, and from what kind of media are you trying to
    install from?

    did you get it from software.opensuse.org or somewhere else? (where??)

    did you boot from that disk and do this: http://tinyurl.com/2ebcf27
    if you did not, do it now...and if it fails then you _must_ get a
    perfect disk, see the Download Help link on the download page

    oh, tell us: did that motherboard come in a box with a penguin on
    it...or just broken flying window? [i ask because this google search
    "DH55TC i3 540 linux problem*" returns 8000+ hits]

    this cite
    http://www.intel.com/support/motherb...?wapkw=(DH55TC)
    shows success in installation by some distros, but no kernel more recent
    than 2.6.33, while openSUSE 11.4 is born with 2.6.37

    so, check the disk, check your BIOS settings (if you have fiddled with
    the speed or voltage you need to fall back to 'normal', and then try
    again...

    you might also try the Firmware Test on the install disk (right below
    Check Installation Media)..

    and let us hear from you again..

    That's a bug. Open a bugzilla and attach the full kernel trace dump. The
    photo only show the end of it.

    I can't see the whole thing, so I don't really know what's going on... but you can always try to pass 'nomodeset' to the kernel boot parameters and see if you get the same error. Somehow I look at KMS and see a big boom there...

    There is an "---[ end trace ... ]---" in the photo. That's the kernel
    dumping the info for a bug report, so please report it.

    That's nice and all (the bug reporting part), but I've seen this on Intel chipsets caused by KMS enabled, as it wouldn't be that surprising to happen also on overclocked machines. A bit of information would be welcoming... This one of the cases where detail do make miracles...

    Same here, seen it too on Intel chipsets. On most occasions 'nomodeset' does the job.
    ° Appreciate my reply? Click the star and let me know why.

    ° Perfection is not gonna happen. No way.

    Hi eyeryone! thanks for the response. Yesterday I struggled again with my problem and have found out that the real prob was my NVIDIA 8600GT graphics card. I removed the card ant tried again like ten times and DIDNOT get any errors. so the problem really was my Graphics card. Also I think the kernel is not able to use or access the RAM of my graphics card. Now I'm just curious how do i tell the kernel to avoid that particular step. Thanks

    NOTE: I am really new in this vast world of LINUX, so if you all could be little more non technical and not use short-forms like (KMS etc) i could grab your responses even better. Thank you

    you never responded to my initial post, and i see you also ignored
    Carlos' request to log the bug you found..

    it is highly unlikely i want to help you if you intend to ignore your
    helpers..

    but, just because i'm a really really nice and friendly guy i will point
    you to these pages, which may not be at all helpful, a fact i can't know
    for sure but would at least have had a chance to guess a potential
    remedy if i had some answers and could be confident you had a good
    install disk:

    http://tinyurl.com/23mgej6
    http://en.opensuse.org/SDB:NVIDIA_drivers
    http://tinyurl.com/37v9y7m

    and, if you don't understand KMS (or anything else) either ask, or dig
    out the answer yourself, like this http://tinyurl.com/3rhjtmp

    this whole linux thing is for fun, for learning, for freedom, for
    helping each other AND yourself.
