Hey, recently went from Redhat to SuSe Linux, well... kinda, I'm trying to you see.
The installer detects my ethernet card fine but then when it goes to finalzing the stuff it says
Finalizing network settings
Deactivate local configuration
Write network drivers
Write routing configuration
Write host name and DNS configuration
Setup network services
Write firewall configuration
Activate network services
Write SuSe config
it says that... but locks up right before a checkmark appears by "Activate network services" lock up as in hanging, mouse won't move, can't hit ALT F1-F7 to go thru install terminals, etc.
I'm lost at this point.
I rebooted and re-did the entire install (but with a minimum installation) figuring (preying)
it was a glitch.
Now, the installer did pick up my ethernet card to a tee BOTH times around, word for word. (Which is: LNE100TX -- EtherFast® 10/100 LAN Card)
I don't understand it though, Redhat 9 and Mandrake 9.1 didn't lock up or give me any fuss with Ethernet. No reason SuSe should either.
What could be the problem? How should I resolve it?
I downloaded the ISO's and checked the MD5sums , they checked out OK (also that means i have no warrent or support)
