I’m trying to install SuSE 11.0 on my eeepc and am running into trouble. The short story: after installing the system and configuring grub, the system hangs at initial boot at this stage (these are the last lines of output I see on the screen):
Creating /var/log/boot.msg done done Setting up hostname 'linux' done Setting up loopback interface lo lo IP address: 127.0.0.1/8 lo IP address: 127.0.0.2/8
and that’s it. Boot doesn’t complete, the computer just sits there. Anybody have an idea what could be the reason and what I could do to solve the problem?
Somewhat longer story: I install to a SDHC card. I have a perfectly working version of 11.0-RC1 on another card; the problem is that I had trouble with fonts in emacs here (Emacs In 11.0-rc - SuSE Linux Forums). That’s why I want to try the offical 11.0 release. I install with two USB sticks, one bootable, the other holding the dvd iso. I tried both with the pae and the default kernel, and setting the default runlevel to 2 because I suspected that it may be a network problem (SuSE doesn’t have drivers for EITHER the ethernet card OR the wireless, unfortunately). I’m running out of ideas here. Can anybody help me getting SuSE 11.0 on this baby?
