openSUSE 11.4 download errors

The link you gave suggests that Non-Technical Users (that would be me I think) use the forums and leave formal bug reporting to the pros.

Post #16 summarized the problem pretty well. It would have to be prefaced with the fact that the file mentioned was the downloaded openSUSE 11.4_64 installation .iso and that the DVD was burned from that file. I would not be able to answer any technical questions. They would just have to try to duplicate the problem and go from there. My inclination is to let the pros (like yourself) report it but I will do it if you think it is the right thing.


Just a thought…maybe the yast is hard coded to only recognize its own version. Also I’d check the iso once you have 11.4 installed since it may have been a bug in 11.3 but might have been fixed by now. There is no hope of having 11.3 fixed at this late date :slight_smile:

It would have to say so.

I used 11.4 to verify 12.1

Well, I have a resolution without a solution.

I worked with the 11.4 in Failsafe most of yesterday with no success. The monitor simply will not display except in Failsafe mode. In a last ditch effort, I did a new installation of 11.3 (works perfectly) and did an Update (instead of New Install) of it to 11.4. No joy.

Late in the day, I had a prospective website project come in. I need my LAMP localhost server for show and tell. I did a New Install of 11.3, set up LAMP and went to work on proposed layouts.

In short, I am out of patience with 11.4 and out of time to figure out the problem. I am just glad I was cautious enough not to try to update my daily work computer. Maybe the 12.1 version will work for me.

I truly appreciate the time and effort the professionals on this forum have given to my dipshit problem. I will keep an eye on this thread and the forum in general to see if someone figures it out and presents a solution.

Again, Thank all of you (that is y’all in Texas, the correct second person plural) for your good work.


Why not give 12.1 a go
RC2 is due any time now
