Suse Linux 10.0 installation


I'm trying install Suse Linux 10.0 to begin my Linux tour.
But some problems ocurred;

When I try to run the installation hangs on "Searching fo info file";

I have solved this problem by writyn "irqpoll"

Everything was OK.

But during the installation when we choose the packages that we'll install
there is no packages, ex:

Quote:
Software

No source at cd:///;devices=/dev/hda/dev/hdb
  • ERROR: No propose
I click on Software and there is no packages...
Why this hapen?

Check the discs, I am betting they are misburned, or burned from corrupt files. Everytime you download ISOs, you should check the md5sum twice. Once after download. Once after burning the project onto a disc. So long as they are all clear both times, you are ready to install. It seems like your discs are corrupt.

I use this tool: http://ww2.nero.com/nero7/enu/Nero_MD5_Verifier.html

You use that, copy and paste the original expected md5sum from the mirror you downloaded SuSE, then browse to the iso, it will compute. If it matches, you are set. If not, you have a problem. BTW, the ISO and the CD/DVD will have matching md5sums. If you use verify the compliation, nero and others usually also check the md5sum with that of the original as one part of that verification.

I'm afraid that is all you can do. If you are using Windows for the download, try using a download manager rather than a browser.

Well, this is why downloading via a browser is a bad idea. Using bittorrent, or ftp client, they have a file check built in. This is good for you, because it doesn't waste your time. Downloading via browser you have no failsafe.
