Login required???

10-4. You are right, of course. My own frustration was showing through after the terse responses.

Sorry.

The download instructions on opensuse.org site for usb sticks
specifically say NOT to use any program for copying the image onto USB
sticks (except those recommended on the site), because they break how
opensuse manage booting the usb stick.

For doing it from Windows:

http://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Create_a_Live_USB_stick_using_Windows

You are to use ImageWriter (or ImageUSB if that fails).

That’s the download page.

Is that the “login requested” page you get? That’s the text mode login
page, and you get that when the graphics mode login failed. Notice that
all Linux systems have and admin password (even presonal systems). If
that is the live installation media, just press enter.

Thanks for the help I finally got it booted up into SUSE. I am now having this problem
http://i95.photobucket.com/albums/l136/tgjones85/snapshot1.png

I am also having the problem of my wifi not staying connected. Is this a known issue? I was able to connect on start-up but then it disconnected and now says it cannot find a network. I entered my network settings and was still not able to connect.

You’ll want to ask about that in a new thread here, and describe
precisely what you’re doing. It looks like you’re running the installer,
but it may be that you’re partitioning the wrong drive (the USB drive may
be recognized as /dev/sda, in which case you cannot repartition it since
it’s the live system). Details are important to getting help.

And this you’ll want to ask about in the wireless forum - when you do,
please provide information about the network adapter that you’re using,
as the idiosyncrasies will vary from driver to driver. Wireless is - in
case you may not know - a single-driver, but a driver per device, so
characteristics will vary from device to device. Again, details are very
important.

This is during install?
The photo is too small to read without difficulties. You can use
susepaste.org instead.

Wifi problem? So you did finally install the system?

I’m very confused.

Or are you attempting to connect wireless on the live install media?
