Thread: openSUSE 12.1 install hangs at kernel-desktop-3.1.0-1.2.1.x86_64.rpm

    Default openSUSE 12.1 install hangs at kernel-desktop-3.1.0-1.2.1.x86_64.rpm

    Hi there,

    I have a problem installing openSUSE 12.1 x86_64:
    The installation hangs at installing kernel-desktop-3.1.0-1.2.1.x86_64.rpm when reaching 100%
    Term 7 (graphical)

    Choosing a different kernel (e.g. kernel-default) does not help, it always freezes when installing the kernel package.

    Sanity checks:
    - md5sum of the iso is ok, k3b verified the burned data and it installs without problems to a VirtualBox VM.
    - install using VESA mode (non-VESA rescue system and all recent live CDs like Knoppix give up on my Nvidia GTX 560 Ti, it seems nouveau is still too buggy)
    - tried a simple partition layout, including only swap + ext4 for /

    I have done pictures of every used terminal, including one which displays the content of /mnt/boot
    Term 1 (the error appears long before the kernel package)
    Term 2 ls -l /mnt/boot
    Term a
    Term b
    Term c
    a,b,c: Don't remember the exact number

    Any help is appreciated, I'm trying to install 12.1 for three days now (a mirror had wrong permissions during the weekend before the release).

    Greetings,
    Silpion81

    As openSUSE 12.1 is not released, you pobably do have something else like a RC one for testing. All questions should go into the Pre-release/Beta subforum.
    But as it is you can also wait for the real stuff.

    Is this GoldMaster? or RC2?

    If Gold

    Have you run the media check?

    According to the mailing list, build 39 is gold. When opening the iso with K3B it displays openSUSE-DVD-x86_64-Build0039-Media and the MD5 is 4cfe8229111ef723ae7aa541fd2c87b7 (same as on the mirror list).
    So I guess this really is the final 12.1 (btw. the faulty mirror permission got fixed on monday).

    Check installation media returns "no errors found".

    I managed to install it now using a rather ugly way (some steps are specific to the graphics card):
    - create a VirtualBox VM and attache the raw hard disk (the necessary commands are listed here)
    - install openSUSE 12.1 through VirtualBox in VESA graphics mode, but without nouveau and disabled bootloader. Shut down the VM when it wants to reboot.
    - reboot the system (not the VM) from the DVD, fix the bootloader
    - boot from the hard disk
    - skip the hardware configuration, otherwise the sound device of the graphics card will freeze the system

    Afterwards, the system boots but there are some flaws:
    - it takes a long time to start and booting looks ugly
    - when shutting down, a filesystem can not be unmounted

    The last one worries me.

    Nevertheless, I think there are two distinct problems. The graphics card is unsupported but I don't see why this should prevent the kernel rpm from installing since hardware detection is done in a different step.

    Your media sounds good
    You didn't say if you had tried text mode install.

    I just tried text mode and it hangs while installing the kernel, too.

    Additional hardware info:
    • Core 2 Q9400
    • 4 GB RAM
    • 1,5 GB HDD, tried both a simple swap + ext4-/ layout and other layouts using btrfs.
    • Nvidia GTX 560 Ti 2048MB (problems related to the graphics card vanished after installing the official driver)

    For now I reverted (yay! for btrfs "set-default") to the previous installation which has the unmounting error on shutdown. When booting there are also messages that it tries to "manually resume the kernel" which could explain the slow start. The system currently works but leaves a feeling that it is going to break someday.

    Maybe more people with the same problem turn up within the next days, otherwise I could install 11.4 again and try to update to the 12.1 repositories (or tumbleweed).

    Nope. That message just means that the kernel is checking to see if there
    is an hibernated system in swap, and is very quick. The delay is whatever
    comes behind.

    The installation had some more faults (e.g. flash always crashed immediately) but they are solved now.

    Solution:
    Installing by using the KDE live CD (instead of the full installation DVD) worked.

    The only obstacle was that the live CD did not display anything on the GTX 560 Ti, not even in VESA or text mode. At least until I've read somewhere that entering "nomodeset" in the boot menu solves those problems.

    Seems like I have the same problem: installation hangs at kernel-desktop-... 100%.
    Downloaded openSuse 12.1 (64-bit) right after official release.

    Hardware:
    Intel Core i5-2500 (4x 3,3 GHz), 8 GB RAM
    NVIDIA GTX 560, 1024 MB
    1000 GB Harddisk (Win 7 x64 is installed on a Partition - the partition-layout results in 6 Partitions if suse-install succeeds)

    I tried installing with 2 different DVDs burned from the downloaded iso-image (MD5 verified) and from a bootable USB-Stick.
    Rather frustrating.
    I now download live-installer (KDE, x64) and try the solution Silpion81 succeeded with. Hope it works with me too.
    I try to keep you up do date.

    So long

    OK, this worked:

    Installed the KDE Live-CD with parameter "nomodeset". It worked even in graphical mode (although with poor resolution).
    Otherwise installer or Live-Linux hung up with every other parameter I could think of.
    Then downloaded NVIDIA-driver for GTX 560 and installed it (after installing kernel-sources) in text mode.
    After that KDE worked with full resolution (1920x1080) and boot worked without "nomodeset".

    On the forum I saw other threads with similar problems concerning NVIDIA cards. Hope this helps.
