I just got a Dell XPS M1530 with 3GB ram, 320GB hard drive, 2.5GHz Intel centrino core 2 duo. It came with Windows vista home premium.
I wanted to install opensuse 11.0. Im a new user to Linux and ive decided to jump off the deep end into it.
Upon installation, when i try to get into opensuse, i find that the mouse behaves very erratically - ranges from no response to randomly opening dialogue boxes. Also, there is no response from the keyboard.
Could someone assist? I shut down my computer and booted into windows which seems to be working ok.
Please go into your BIOS and check your USB settings. If there is a “legacy mode” for your USB, please select that.
Sometimes, with USB keyboards, during the boot of the openSUSE installation CD/DVD, one can hold down either the <ALT> or <CTRL> or <SHIFT> key (I can’t remember which) to restore keyboard functionality.
Be certain you checked the md5sum of your burned CD/DVD with the md5sum listed on the openSUSE web site.
