Ive got openSUSE 10.2 on the cds.
The problem I am facing is during installation. When I start installing after going through the partitioning and stuff, everything is smooth till the installation from the CD 1 is done. After this, the system Reboots (Initial boot) and when I boot into the OS, there's just a screen with the openSUSE logo and a text box of sorts above it. There is no text whatsoever anywhere, not even around the textbox. If i try writing something in the 'textbox' it doesnt show. If I press a few keys, a command line appears asking me to login with a login and password (which is supposed to be setup at a later stage in the installation). Theres nothing I can do beyond this point except a restart. I also read on the SUSE website ( www.opensuse.org
) that the installation requires CD1 to CD3 for the most basic installation. But I havent been prompted anywhere to insert the CD2 during the installation. I think only 40% of the installation gets completed. What could be the problem?
I would like you to note that this computer has only 128 MB of ram. The installer does not use YAST2, but a keyboard-based fallback instead because of low memory. Is this a problem solely because of the low RAM? I have set aside a 260 MB swap partition. Will increasing the swap size help? How much swap will b ideal? Or is increasing RAM the only solution?
