    Default Trouble installing SUSE 12.1 on Asus Eee 1025C netbook

    Hey everyone,

    I just recently picked up an Eee 1025C netbook that I wanted to install the recent version of openSUSE on. Since it doesn't come with a CD drive, as many here probably already knows, I created a LiveUSB of the 32-bit version of 12.1. During the initial setup everything is fine, until after the package install phase.

    It ends up rebooting on me, and upon start up enters the boot menu to let me choose Desktop or Safe boot. If I choose Desktop it freezes on me... so I chose Safe and it continued luckily!

    Now this next section works fine.. allows me to set the host name, goes through the hardware configuration and finally ends up at the sound configuration.. in which is freezes. I've tried installing this about 4 or 5 times already and figured this was the best place to go in regards to questions! I'm sorry if I'm not being specific enough but if anyone can help I'd be more than happy to try to answer any questions that could help me get this installed.

    Thanks in advanced!

    I'm surprised
    I have a 1015PEM and it's flawless

    Post the result of this, it will tell us about your hardware:
    /sbin/lspci -nnk

    Are you using a Live CD or a DVD version
    If you used the CD, does it boot to a live desktop?

    Have you done the media check

    instead of 'safe' pick the normal one but type into the "Boot Options"
    line this:
    Code:
    nomodeset
    and press enter..

    hmmmm... nomodeset is not (i don't think) gonna help with the sound
    setup...why not skip the sound set up until after you have worked
    through getting the video straight (nomodeset is just a temp patch to
    get you going, see http://tinyurl.com/23mgej6, afterwards you need to
    progress to http://tinyurl.com/37v9y7m to automatically load a working
    video driver)

    by the way: tell us more about your hardware...especially the graphics..


    > I've tried installing this about 4 or 5 times already


    i know it is not true of some operating systems you may have been
    exposed to, but generally reinstalling over and over a _predictable_
    system like linux is going to result in the same thing being broken
    _every_ time....i mean, there should be NO chance that stuff just breaks
    one time and then works the next (of course, if the user changes what
    s/he does each time, that is a different thing!)

    so, if you install and it is broken, then you should expect it to still
    be broken if you do exactly the same thing again..

    so,

    1. did you test the downloaded iso with md5sum prior to making the USB
    install disk?

    2. did you test the USB disk <http://tinyurl.com/37v9y7m> prior to
    beginning install?

    no need to go any further until we are sure your install medium is good!

    then, tell us if you had any errors during install?
    and, was the machine connected to the net during install (so it could
    fetch updated software)


    > and figured this was the best place to go in regards

    i don't think most here expect you to be born with knowing exactly what
    to provide......

    but, do tell us if you are installing 32 or 64 bit, and which desktop
    environment you are installing..

    by the way, does that Eee come in a box with a penguin printed on it,
    next to the flying windows?
