I tried to install open SuSE 11.2 / 32 bit in my Workstation 7, running on a SuSE 11.0 / 32 bit system.
After selecting the archictecure, language and screen size I pressed “Install”. Then I got a small “window” in the VMware-console displaying:
0 : 8bd7a .a 7:2.1
The guest stopped then.
Installing open SUSE 11.2/64 bit works fine.
Please try Bugzilla for 32 bit OS-11.2 not installing in Vmware when 64 bit does.
Perhaps the FOSS Virtual Box would install it, if it fails to then it’ll be easier for developers & testers to try out (no commercial software required).
when I try to install SuSE 11.2 in a VirtualBox (2.0.2), the problem is still present.
I forgot to say, there is a workaround (thanks to the support of open-slx.com), which works in VMware as well as in VirtualBox:
After the error message is displayed, press 3 times RETURN.
After that, the console installation selection is presented,
select “linux” and the system installation starts, and the them is propperly installed.
One question: how to I a file a bug request (which URL)
