I get the below message when trying to install opensuse leap 15.1 on a lenovo e15
Your computer does not fulfill all requirements for a graphical installation. There is either less than 96MB memory or the X server could not be started. As fallback,the text front end of YAST2 will guide you through the installation. This front-end offers the same functionality as the graphical one,but the screens differ from those in the terminal.
you should provide more information about your system. If the installer complains about not enough memory this information is crucial for anyone to help. If it has enough memory but X server can’t be started you should try to complete the installation and then try to resolve the issue with X server.
so I am trying to do a clean install of open suse 15.1 on a Lenovo(E15) Laptop with 512SSD and 16G memory. During the installation boot process I get that error saying not enough memory to start X server. what could the issue be?
There’s a log file that you can inspect during installation, usually it’s located under /var/log/YaST2/y2log. You can switch to a terminal with CTRL+ALT+F2 (or one of the other F-Keys) and take a look into that log. It’s plenty of information but you might find a root cause. 16 GB of memory is more than enough.
