    KDE Plasma uses OpenGL 2.0 by default. Try to use XRender. Or turn off effects.
    IMHO x86 architecture is untested in our days, use AMD64 instead.

    Hello, I was given a brief response about the GRUB2 error on the users@lists.opensuse.org forum listing.

    "lzma_decompress.img in trustedgrub is 129MB. This is certainly too big to make any sense. Open bug report." <-So I did file a bug report.

    Sorry for using html code tags.

    @mrmazda the "inxi -Fxz output" I pasted above is from the live boot installation session.

    @Svyatko I am right now attempting to reinstall with the EXT4 filesystem and XFS home directory partition option with the "swap partition to memory option ticked". I also enabled the "trusted boot" option once again this time.

    Thanks for your helping.

    I am uncertain between the difference in the i686 openSUSE TW .iso's as per current or snapshot-media suffixes.
    From https://get.opensuse.org/tumbleweed:

    Please be aware of the following limitations of the live images:

    • They should not be used to install or upgrade Tumbleweed. Please use the Tumbleweed media instead
    • They have a limited package and driver selection, so cannot be considered an accurate reflection as to whether Tumbleweed will work on your hardware or not

    I attempted to retry installation with a live snapshot again earlier today and it became a little exasperating with the continued pauses during package downloading.

    @awerlang So I downloaded and verified a Tumbleweed .iso from your suggestion here: -> https://get.opensuse.org/tumbleweed <- I selected the EXT4 filesystem with XFS filesystem selected for home partition. I used a wired connection to the modem this attempt also. Things began very slowly with receiving package information from the main repository but with 2 retries success. This time installing had no or holdups until at 98% GRUB2-Decompressor error.

    @mrmazda I was able to attach the copy of y2logs in .tgz format to the bug report. Thanks for letting me know about this.

    I also now have more files that I copied over from the attempted installation computer from /tmp and /var/log to usb with the following names: -> messages, hwinfo.log and dmesg.log but I did not attach them to the bug report as of yet only filed them here.

    Are there any other suggestions or things maybe I could try at this point? I will power the computer off in a while but now I can still access /tmp after this failed installation attempt.

    Ok thanks for your help again.

    Do not use trustedgrub2, use standard grub2 which does not have this issue.

    @arvidjaar This sounds like great advice but I am not certain how to implement this into the installation yet. I will have to do some searching.

    It looks like some work is being done with the bug report.

    Thanks

    Assuming you can get past the GRUB error, if you got the Offline/DVD .iso image, then you can uncheck "use online repositories", which is causing some delay in your installation. Setup repositories in YaST after installation.

    I attempted installation again with "Trusted Boot Support" disabled (It is disabled by default). The OSS repository was having problems connecting so I ticked abort for that. Installation completed in full this time.

    I was able to reboot the computer and then use YaST Software to enable the following repositories:

    Then in Konsole:
    Code:
    zypper dup
    1. I am wondering whether or not to mark this post as solved now due to bug report still being active.

    Thank You for all your helping with this.
