It is holiday season, I have time to play my Linux system
Two days ago , I did install Suse 11.1 on my notebook (old system was Suse 11.0)
My computer is notebook HP Compaq 6910p:
video card: ATI X2300
Anyway, I did fresh installation with Gnome and KDE4. The installation seemed very good and very fast (took less installation time than any old Suse system). Normally, the problem I may have after installation is about wireless and video card.
---- Wireless worked automatically after installation ( like Suse 11.0 ) , great.
---- Since there was no ATI repository for Suse 11.1, I compiled ATI driver for my system as rpm and installed it. It worked well . For Suse 11.0, you can install ATI from YaST, but not Suse 11.1, now.
Then , I found the big problem.
During installation , I used power from plug for my notebook. When removed the plug and used battery. I could not use my computer:
Suse 11.1 starts very normal until login window. In fact “login window” would not show up, just nothing on screen . I have to “turn off” computer by press power button…
I believe that it was x window could not start…
Anyway, I could not figure out how to fix this problem, What I did was :
remove Suse 11.1 and reinstall Suse 11.0…
From installation to installation, it took me 24 hours.
