11.2 install problem on Mac Pro w. GeFore 7300 GT

I’ve got a Mac Pro on a single 250GB HDD and an nvidia GeForce 7300 GT configured to dual boot via rEFIt. It’s worked fine before with other Linux distributions installed beside the OS X.

I can create the Lixux partitions fine (Ext3 and Swap) and run the installer up to the point it reboots.

At this point the display is all messed up and I can’t interact to make on-screen choices to do anything, finish the install.

If I could get to the prompt, at least, probably I could run an install for the correct display drivers but I’m not sure how to get there.

Any help would be appreciated.

I have not used a mac, on PC I would choose the “vesa” or if that failed “text mode” video options (with a liveCD for PC use the F3 key) I expect similar on a mac.

Then once installed go here openSUSE Graphic Card Practical Theory Guide for Users - openSUSE Forums for further info.

Not having used a mac, My advice here may not help, but perhaps points you in the right direction.
