Trying to install openSuSE 11.1 from the c’t DVD on a Samsung V25 XVC 2.8GHz Celeron (1gb RAM including shared Video memory for 18bit XGA 1024 x 768.
Hardware works ok from XPProf on hda0,
Grub boots fine from hda1, rest of 160Gb filled with extended partition hda4 containg Data (hda5 ext3), SuSE (hda6, ext3) and Swap (hda7) all mounted by label.
- eth0 needs to be an USB-NIC (software dongle)
- Internet access is via a 16 MBit/s (down) 1Mbit up gateway/nameserver
During first install, I skipped the networkupdate and ran into a yast2-announced “flickering of the display” that amounted to black screen for >1h no disk access ended by user-initiated -cold reboot.
Continuation of installation led me to netconfiguration:

ANY intelligent comments welcome!
Maybe I should not have specified the search domain office.<myname>.com without further entry in /etc/hosts.
This is meant to be redirected to another PC in my LAN later.
So Ideleted that entry but this did not change anything about the result.
I was disappointed by the failure of my gateway to show up in the kernel routing table (line eth1 above).
However, what can I do about it?
