So I am trying to install opensuse 11.2 on my laptop. I know it is not the DVD because I used it to install on my desktop, which worked just fine. When I am initialing booting to the installer of 11.2 start udev hangs. Eventually it gets past it and recommends using broken_modules. The installation will continue up to the partitioning of ext4 then it just dies. An installation error has occured or something of that nature. Might have something to do with this? -> Doesnt support DPO or LUA – openSUSE Forums
I have not tried a text install, nor do I know how. And I was using Live KDE cds before 11.2 came out. And the last two KDE 4.3.2 & 4.3.3 didnt work due to the error that I linked to. So I doubt the live cd would help.
You could also try typing these in the boot argument (any combination, one or all of them)
edd=off acpi=off noapic
