I just purchased an AMD Phenom 9850 processor with a Gigabyte GA-MA790FX-DQ6 motherboard.
I have downloaded Opensuse 11.0 to install on my new setup. After i get the Welcome screen and i select Installation, OpenSuse loads the kernel and then i get kernel panics. I am trying to install on an IDE drive that had 10.3 installed on it. I have not managed to get a screen shot and will take a pic of the Kernel Panic error, which is the same as this one: [Phoronix] AMD Phenom 9500 Linux Performance (Spider Platform) Review](http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=961&num=2)
I also tried to boot from the LiveCD and got as far as Starting HALDaemon and the machine froze. From the previous website, i understand that there may be some inconsistancies with the AMD processors. Is there anyone that might be able to shed some light and maybe point me in a direction?
