facing issue while booting OpenSuSe 11.2 on dell inspiron 1564

Hi all
I have dell inspiron 1564 laptop.
I had tried to install open suse 11.2 on my lapi.
the installation was smooth till the post installation of all packages but after that it wasn’t displaying anything on my laptop screen when it was rebooted for the completion of other installation component.

I had VGA driver Intel Graphics Media Accelerator HD.

Can anyone guide me whats an issue ?

Thanks and regards

i use the dell inspiron 1564 also and i had the same problems.
my by-pass for this problem:
first install opensuse 11.1 and than upgrade to 11.2
this works but I have some problem with the “Intel Graphics Media Accelerator HD” and use the VESA driver in 1024x768 mode (1360x768 don’t work)
maybe you get here a answer: intellinuxgraphics.org

That’s because the stock kernel in openSUSE 11.2 has no support for Intel GMA HD. Try upgrading to the latest KOTD from - that should fix it.
