Monitor issues when installing OpenSuse11 on PPC


I am completely new to OpenSuse though I have used other distros before. I was very happy to see that PPC suport was kept.

I am trying to install OpenSuse11.0 on a G4 Mac. I can boot from the cd and get to the command line where I type ‘install’, but the installation screen comes up all messy with funny colours and I am unable to continue. It does not crash per-ce, but the resolution is all off and I can’t read the screen.

Any ways to force specifc screen setting during installation?

Did anyone encounter this problam?



hi - try with a vga= line in the kernel line from grub - see this post - it may help…
