Guide to Troubleshooting 12.3 Boot Display

Created a page at

Invite anyone to edit the page for any reason.

Objective is to point new posts with any kind of display problem during boot to this page to try most common fixes before posting their problem to the Forums. If a new post just asks what to do, then that person could be pointed to this page first.

Difference between this page and the official SDB is to focus entirely on 12.3 fixes.


I would say you need to add a third installation solution: Switch to the Text Mode Installation. ON a nVIDIA 9500, its was the onoly thing I found to work even as openSUSE did work after the install. Its my opinion its mostly specific to kernel 3.7 included on the installation disk. A quick upgrade to kernel 3.8 after the install is complete is my recommendation.
