Please help? I’m installing OpenSuse 11.4 to a HP DL180 G6 server, with no luck.
I go through the installation process when booting up from the DVD, and when it finish and restarts in loads Suse and then goes to a black screen and doesn’t respond.
I’ve tried everything now and really need some help???

Thank you for your reply. When I select to boot up in level 3 it starts loading up and then get to a stage where it says “found Linex terminal in (/dev/tty)” I think… as it’s to quick and then it goes straigt to the black screen. I can’t even try the other option in the Configuring Ghraphics card help.
I’ve tried both 'nomdeset and failsafe settings. the only option I can get a terminal console is if I boot from the installation DVD and select ‘Recue system’. I’m not to sure if there is anything I can do under this option?
Hi did and all looks fine there. I see if I reinstall the server without any Desktop function the installation runs fine and Linux gets installed and configured. Is their a way to install the desktop apps afterwards?
I suspect the video then. What is it? And yes you can install any DE pattern from Yast or zypper on the command line. Just type yast. Navigate with the tab and arrow keys. But if the video will not handle it it probably will not work after installing the DE. At least until we can figure what the video is.
