there is no OpenSUSE 12.10
there is OpenSUSE 12.1 , and that is about to go END OF LIFE soon
( but you still have 139 days )
the current is OpenSUSE is 12.2 and should be used -- if at all possible
Have installed the program 5 times, and after I removed the extra Network Card, Sound Card and VGA Nvidia Graphics card, I managed to get the sytem installed O.K.
it is not a good idea to remove hardware before installing , and doubly/ triple so with OpenSUSE
opensuse uses a TON of scripts to AUTO set up ,Auto start, and auto run things on boot .
and it is a pain to manually configure them after the install ( life with suse)
When I was installing I did not give a user name and password
suse is moving to become like Ubuntu in that "sudo" is used and the root account is just a "leftover"
you can do a custom install and create a root account USING a different password than your normal user
see the install guide
but opensuse 12.2 SHOULD be used .
Can you please post your hardware specs
the CPU ?
the amount of RAM ?
what is the network card ?
what is the 3d card ?
