SuSE 11.1 - Various install failures!

Hello all,

I’m a big fan of SuSE over the years, but have never had this many problems installing it!

Basically, during installation of the DVD (which I downloaded and did an md5 check on and passed with flying colours), I get 2 or 3 package install failures - such as graphnd-vis.

Also at the end of the installation, I get a GRUB failure too - so I’m not able to boot my PC at all now.

I’m installing on to a basic Dell machine, which already has a freshly installed copy of XP on it.

Sorry this is all a bit vague - any one else experiencing packages install failures on a default install and error-free DVD?

Thanks, Seb

I have had a similar issue on my notebook during install, the reason is
the install from images can cause problems.

On the final page before the install, scroll down to the bottom of the
screen and you will see an option to ‘disable’ install from images,
then proceed from there.

Thanks for the quick reply. I will definitely consider that - but for the meantime - just burning the DVD at 4x on 16x DVD media seems to have fixed the issue.

Thanks all!

You need to check the dvd’s md5 with the md5 sum od the DVD image. If the image has the correct md5 sum it is not guaranteed that it will be burned correctly.
I don’t know any utility to check the DVD’s md5 but you can always make image from that and cross reference it with the md5.
