hello, this is my first post into opensuse forums, ive been using for a time ubuntu, and i wanted to try out open suse, yesterday i managed to download and burn the version 11.1 but i am having some problems installing it, ive read the noobie guides and i couldnt figure out what is happening.
i run a dell inspirion 1420 2 gb ram and 500gb hdd
when i start the cd i get the menu and i click into install, then after some moments i get this
file:/var/adm/mount/boot/i386/root: SHA1 sum wrong. if you really trust your repository, you may continue in an insecure mode
then, i click into ok
and get this
make sure that cd number 1 is in your drive
i click ok, and after some loading i get this error
an error ocurred during instalation
and i get to the main menu when clicking ok to that, then if i click install or upgrade, it wont work the same would appear, so please can anyone help me?
this is the status of my hdd
Disk /dev/sda: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60801 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Disk identifier: 0xf5f3f5f3 Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda1 * 1 3922 31503433+ 7 HPFS/NTFS /dev/sda2 3923 7958 32419170 5 Extended /dev/sda5 3923 7691 30274461 83 Linux /dev/sda6 7692 7958 2144646 82 Linux swap / Solaris
and the rest of the space is unallocated, i am planning on using 30 gb for open suse and the rest to format it into ntfs so i can use it as storage space from any of the partition’s OS’s
